Some exceptions to Quad-O for new wells include exploratory, delineation and hydraulically fractured low-pressure wells. Exploratory and delineation wells are exempt due to the typical remote location and lack of access to a natural gas pipeline network.
Transvac's simple solution is to use thehigh pressure 'recycle gas' to motivate an ejector in order to increase recovery from low-pressure wells. The ejector then compresses the combined motive recycle gas and recovered low-pressure gas into the Compressor inlet, which not only increase overall production but enables to Compressor to operate more efficiently.
