  • Patent number: 10450848
    Abstract: Downhole gas separators, artificial lift systems including the downhole gas separators, hydrocarbon wells including the artificial lift systems, and methods of separating a gas from a liquid hydrocarbon within a hydrocarbon well. The downhole gas separators include an elongate outer housing that defines an enclosed volume, a fluid inlet port, and a gas outlet port. The downhole gas separators further include an elongate dip tube that extends within the enclosed volume, and the gas outlet port is configured to selectively provide fluid communication between the enclosed volume and an external region.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: August 24, 2016
    Date of Patent: October 22, 2019
    Assignee: ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company

  • Patent number: 10443370
    Abstract: Artificial lift apparatus, systems, and methods for use in a deviated or horizontal wellbore, including a downhole gas separators, hydrocarbon wells including the artificial lift systems, and methods of separating a gas from a liquid hydrocarbon within a hydrocarbon well. Included is a downhole gas separator positioned in a deviated or horizontal wellbore, further including a flow-regulating device configured to restrict fluid flow through the gas outlet during at least a portion of each intake stroke of a reciprocating pump and to permit the fluid flow during at least a portion of each exhaust stroke of the reciprocating pump.

  • Publication number: 20170122081
    Abstract: A well screen system having enhanced resistance to erosion, including a tubular defined by a circumferential wall having an outer surface and a first plurality of apertures circumferentially disposed longitudinally along at least a portion thereof, the first plurality of apertures extending radially through the circumferential wall; a series of circumferential channels positioned about the outer surface of the circumferential wall; a plurality of longitudinal ribs positioned adjacent the series of circumferential channels and extending radially therefrom, the plurality of longitudinal ribs forming a series of longitudinal channels; and a wire helically disposed around the tubular, substantially enclosing the series of circumferential channels and the series of longitudinal channels, wherein the series of circumferential channels is structured and arranged to permit fluid communication with the series of longitudinal channels.
