Upwing Products

Under Development

  • High Flow Subsurface Compressor System (SCS)

    For offshore conventional wells with high flows, SCS is comprised of multiple compressor modules custom developed to meet specified flows and pressures.

  • Medium Flow Subsurface Compressor System (SCS)

    For onshore conventional and unconventional wells up to 600 mcf/d, SCS is comprised of standard compressor stages that are selected for each specified well.

  • Low Flow Subsurface Compressor System (SCS)

    For onshore conventional and unconventional wells up to 300 mcf/d, SCS is comprised of a standard compressor for a range of well types.

Advantages

of Subsurface vs. Topside Compression

Subsurface compressors provide a much higher economic return by...

  • Decreasing the abandonment of bottom hole pressure vs. the well head pressure, providing a higher total recovery

  • Increasing the mass flow of the gas vs. volumetric flow, providing greater operator cash flow

  • Requiring a fraction of the power pushing the gas upward vs. pulling it out from the top, providing significant cost savings

Subsurface compressors reduce liquid loading by...

  • Increasing the mass flow of the gas vs. volumetric flow, carrying the liquid and moisture with the gas to the surface

  • Increasing the temperature of the gas at the bottom of the well vs. decreasing it, preventing phase change (condensation)

Upwing Well Trials

Upwing’s SCS has been proven in multiple trials in both wet and dry gas wells in the Anadarko basin.

Trial 1

The first trial took place in January of 2016. SCS’s technical parameters were within the range predicted by Upwing’s proprietary analytical programs. The compressor system operated at 45,000 RPM, increasing flow by 16%.

Trials 2 and 3

The second trial took place in November of 2016, and the SCS was deployed in only 3 hours. The compressor’s performance exceeded design expectations by 25%. The system operated continuously for weeks, was inspected and deployed in a third well with rich gas.
