UNIFORM PROGRAM REDUCES PARAFFIN REMOVAL COSTS
Gregory A. Hicks Texaco USA Midland, Tex. Initiating a uniform hot-oiling program will help maximize lease profit, minimize paraffin problems, and reduce duplication of work. Establishing hot-oiling schedules also promotes communication between foremen and field personnel and improves the efficiency of field operations. Wells completed in the San Andres formation in Hockley and Cochran Counties, Tex., were studied to establish a uniform paraffin-removal program.
