This paper will present an entirely new process for de-watering gas wells with liquid loading problems. The process removes produced liquids via a separate flow path and allows gas production unhindered by any liquid head. The result is higher gas production rates arising from increased draw-down and a reduction of near well-bore liquid saturation. An important additional benefit is ability to produce these wells at significantly lower flowing bottomhole pressures, resulting in an increase in recoverable reserves.
