Oleum repeated similar results in tests on other wells for EcoPetrol and Pemex in Mexico, resolving problems of declining production, increased water cut, gas emissions, gas lock, gasification and inefficient pump performance. Indeed, crude production was up an average of more than 20 percent on the test wells in Colombia, and more than 45 percent in Mexican wells suffering from gas lock and poor pump fillage. Gas emissions were completely eliminated on all of them. Furthermore, water wastage was reduced up to 16.5 percent, adding further saving. Pump efficiency was also improved by 44 percent.
At the core of Oleum’s remarkable SIP technology is a control valve and a programmable logic controller (PLC). SIP’s control valve is connected to high-resolution sensors and to a solar-powered industrial computer containing SIP’s proprietary algorithms, which regulate the critical oil well parameters, such as temperature, pressure, and fluid level. When the control valve is shut, SIP forces free gas to accumulate in the well’s annular space, increasing the pressure in the annulus. The sensors detect the fluctuations in gas pressure in the annular space in real-time, and when the well’s optimal pressure is reached, SIP’s control valve automatically opens and releases any excess through the elimination system in place.

Today, Oleum’s SIP is being widely accepted owing to its immense success rate and extremely easy and quick installation process. Oleum Technology is partnering with a multitude of big players in the oil and gas landscape, namely, Ecopetrol (Colombia), Pemex (Mexico), Petroleum Development Oman, Kuwait Oil Company, and OMV (Austria), among others. “In Ecopetrol and Pemex oil wells, our SIP technology has displayed a 20 percent increase in their oil production. Large and small operators now want SIP to optimize their production.” informs Schumacher-Matos. “By combining the multi-disciplinary skills of our highly experienced oil production experts, we aim to address the needs of our clients, the oil industry, and the environment at large.”
