Unlike toluene or diesel treatments, G-CLEAN Well Wake Up is not a solvent and will never mix with or degrade the oil…as after treatment of the oil is not compromised and is fully compatible with production facilities as well as refining processes. It is an oil well stimulation solution with formulations specifically engineered to break down the paraffin or asphaltenes, and remove the build up from the well. In the case of condensate blockage, the product disperses the water blockage. In all cases, G-CLEAN Well Wake Up is designed to increase well production.
The amount of product necessary will vary depending on the depth of the well and the size of the bore and specific down-hole conditions as well as the type of crude and substantiation of specific formation restrictions. Once a diagnosis is made, then the process involves either diluting the product with water prior to pumping, or pumping the fluid undiluted down the well (for asphaltene & paraffin obstacles, dilute A and then B at the same dilution rate and pump down separately, one after the other), recirculating the well and then allowing 12-24 hours of “soaking” or dwell time under pressure. G-CLEAN Well Wake Up products are delivered in highly concentrated forms (why pay the freight to ship water?); and, depending on the treatment or application, are activated on-site through the dilution with water…either fresh water or salt water.
Upon completion of treatment, the oil and the contaminants will be pumped out with the initial flow into a 'baker' or holding tank whereby it can be easily separated for disposal or bio-remediation.
A two product application, Part A and Part B that works best as part of a comprehensive service plan. Dilute product with water at least 10:1 and up to 50:1 (10 parts to 50 parts hot water between 160 and 210 degrees Fahrenheit) and one part product and pump down the well according to predetermined procedure. "A" must be used with "B" and both need to be diluted separately at the same dilution rate. Part A gets pumped down the well bore first, followed by Part B. The two parts should never be added together prior to pumping down the well bore, but will mix together once down the well.
A non-diluted application is done to remove rings of condensate blockages in deficient or clogged wells through the use of a pump surface, a unit of flexible tubing or a repair drill equipped with insulation and a cleaning tool plug.
A non-diluted post stimulation application to remove subsequent obstructions can then be applied through a surface pump after original stimulation with any of the above one part or two part remedies.
"The PDVSA testing with the G-CLEAN well stimulation technologies yielded unequalled positive results at a number of dormant oil and gas well locations," said Nelson Medina, PDVSA / INTEVEP New Technologies Director. "We have tested and investigated over 100 diverse products and found that the G-CLEAN well stimulation technologies performed most effectively and consistently by increasing and restoring productivity in a number of various types of wells, while significantly reducing the costs and environmental consequences of traditional methods. This increased production is very important for the achievement of our Oil Sowing Plan."
Venezuela's PDVSA /Oil Sowing Plan 2013-2019 is to develop the Full Economic and Technological Sovereignty in all activities of Oil and Gas, as well as related strategic sectors, in order to leverage Core Processes that make up the Economic and Technological components which projects process units of oil and gas subsidiaries, and is part of the development strategies of the petro-industrial poles generated in this Oil Sowing Plan.
