ALS Production Lubricant
American Well Technology is the first company to develop, test, patent, and market the use of a production lubricant in artificial lift systems including rod lift, ESPs, and progressing cavity pump systems. The use of American Well Technology’s ALS Production Lubricant immediately reduces friction, torque, and drag between metal contact points in addition to its fluid friction reduction inside tubulars through a daily injected treatment protocol.
The product is distributed and serviced by Rockwater Energy Solutions, Select Energy Services, and Reef Systems in the United States. The company is currently working on distribution engagements in Mexico, Canada, South America, and the Middle East.
Positive Key Performance Indicators
Corrosion and Oxidation control
Elastomer seals and components life
Pressure and damage between rod and tubing contact points
Solids deposition in ESP chambers and impellers
Premature failure from solids, corrosion, and high torque
Fluid on pipe friction and drag
Rod and tubing failures and costly work over
Energy consumption by 10% to 16%
Paraffin build-up – keeps it moving
Damage from solids and abrasives
Peak and average motor torque in ESP’s and PCP’s
In some cases the use of additional scale inhibitors
