What is the "New Normal" for the Oil & Gas Industry?
The results of oversupply and market price crash combined with the pandemic have likely left you looking for even more ways to get benefits out of existing resources and facilities. With the squeeze on revenue and CAPEX we have seen a trend that will focus on extending plateau production instead of drilling new wells. And as the market permits you will also bring on-line wells that have been choked back or shut in. To keep production running with rapidly declining wells, you could be pushed to do costly drilling instead of looking for ways to get added years of revenue out of existing wells. And still with less oil production, there is still the issue of methane release, which is more potent to the environment and has become a hot topic of conversation. Below, we have suggested solutions to these issues, and more.
If you have had to shut in wells during this pandemic, you are going to need to avoid some issues when restarting them when it’s over like excessive work for ESPs or dealing with gas caps or water influx that your equipment isn’t ready to handle. With a Leistritz Multiphase Pump you can greatly reduce the shock to ESPs and at the same time handle anything coming out of the hole while your wells come back on-line. Check out our Mobile Unit to restart your wells pad by pad.
Boosting the multiphase flow in a single flowline downstream to the process or gas treatment facility can better capture valuable hydrocarbons, which makes sense even in a depressed commodity market. Additionally, eliminating stock tanks and reducing production site equipment can achieve better control of methane emissions. Check out our line of Multiphase Production Systems to take control of emissions.

Multiphase Pumps: The Ultimate Tool for Surface Production Technology
For many years, the Oil and Gas Industry has relied on Twin-Screw Pumps to operate reliably and economically in crude oil applications. The benefits with displacement pumps are easily recognized: few moving parts, gas tolerance, direct driven at typical motor speeds, and with low shear forces and pulsations. In the late 1980s the industry saw the advantages in Twin-Screw Pumps: the ability to handle untreated well flow with one piece of equipment. The result… the Leistritz Multiphase Pump.
Leistritz offers a complete line of Multiphase Production Systems (MPS) designed to address specific Oil and Gas Field applications. Each system can reliably and economically boost production. Capitalizing on Leistritz’ Multiphase Pump technology, our standard systems are designed specifically for Wellhead Boosting, Gathering, and Liquid Unloading applications. All Systems are fully supported by our experienced engineering and service personnel.
Multiphase Wellhead Boosting System (MWS)
The Leistritz Multiphase Wellhead Boosting System (MWS) is a proven and economical method of artificial lift that accelerates production by lowering wellhead pressure and/or boosting discharge pressure to buck pipeline pressure.
Leistritz Multiphase Blow Down Unit (MBDU) is a portable, self-contained unit that simultaneously evacuates both the liquids and gases trapped and boosts the well pressure allowing the gas and trapped liquids to start flowing.
Multiphase Annulus Gas Unit (MAGU). These self-contained units efficiently boost gas and liquids coming from the annulus and boost the multiphase flow directly into the pipeline back to the satellite or battery.
