Oil Optimization and Regulatory Services
Did you know that PIT offers world leading technology services to keep your oil production in tip-top shape? We get so excited about our gas products that people don’t always know the wide variety of Oil Optimization and Regulatory Services we offer. Since it’s regulation season, we thought we’d bring some attention to the services we offer to help producers with Regulatory Compliance! We make it as painless as possible and can handle your entire Annual Regulatory Project(s) and Manage it for you start to finish. We can even submit the test results for you!
Gas Migration Tests
Using our world leading, 1 part per million (ppm) sensitivity portable gas detectors, PIT is capable of testing right from the wellhead to the lease edge for methane gas and LELs (lower explosive limit). By utilizing our portable gas detectors, there is no need to drill deep holes to test for gas migration. No ground disturbance occurs, saving you money and time. If you prefer/require Test Holes, we can do that too but require the Ground Disturbance and Line Locating to be done prior to our arrival. If you have a need for Gas Migration testing, post drill or pre-abandonment, we can help! Alberta AER categories for reference are ID 2003-01, D-20, D-79, parts of D-83.
Utilizing our real-time monitor equipped with highly proficient monitoring capabilities, PIT is able to monitor the wells surrounding a frac area for any anomalies, allowing you to follow Alberta AER Directive 83. A professional, designated representative within our company will keep you up to speed on your wells and be able to assist you with any questions you may have anywhere in the province. We are experts, here to help make your Frac go smoothly.
Surface Casing Vent Testing
With over 40 years experience, PIT has developed efficient methods to save you time and money while doing Surface Vent Testing. We have over 80 test kits that are capable of measuring leaks on Surface Casing Vents. We measure and analyze your Vent using a 10-minute bubble test. If it is leaking, we immediately collect more data over a few days that can quantify and classify the leak type. We then distribute an official report back to you. Our engineering reports are all done in house so there is no third-party data exchange done. Using our many stations, our staff and kits can be optimally deployed to save you money.
Suspended Well Inspections: aka D-I3 Tests
Following D13 Directives, PIT can conduct low and medium risk inspections to be sure your lease is up to snuff. Suspended Well Inspection Tests can include: pressure tests on wellhead Seals or Downhole Plugs, ensuring that valves are locked and removed, and onsite environmental checks to locate seepage if it exists. Weed control options and more can be customized to find the best solution for your suspended wells while ensuring compliance.
Reservoir Pressure: Build Ups and Statics
Since Reservoir Pressure tests are required annually by the AER for most pools, it’s important for your well to have as little downtime as possible. Why not do this test from surface and eliminate cost, risk, and large trucks? PIT has special proprietary equipment and techniques to reduce shut in time and save you money. We can provide daily updates to you without the need to drive to site, minimizing the amount of time spent checking wells. Acoustic pressure surveys cut down on your well downtime as there is no need to shut your well in for 14 days. We are experts at this service and have been industry leaders and inventors of AWS Reservoir Tests since the 1970’s!
Options include Static Reservoir test that is done on existing pool wells that are shut in using AWS from surface to gather accurate reservoir pressures.
Packer Isolation Tests: aka IPT tests
Injection or Disposal wells all should have a downhole packer to keep the fluids going where they are intended to go. The packer Isolates the tubing from the casing, so we test this downhole packer to ensure it is not leaking. We use our own portable trailers on site to conduct our tests quickly and efficiently. We perform the field work and supply an approved report for the regulatory body (Alberta, BC and Sask).
PIT is firmly dedicated to meeting all your oil regulatory needs for this season and many more to come. When you look at your annual regulatory requirements, think of PIT because we can offer a ONE-STOP solution and handle it all for you, from the planning to the field work and even submission of the results.
