    Default Producing a well with gas

    We recently drilled a well that produces a lot of gas. In fact the sub pump gas locks immediately.

    Has anyone had experience preceding a well with gas like this?

    What pump works? I was thinking about the helical Grundfos SQ Flex.

    Would it work to run a packer down with 1” galvanized and let the gas push the water up?

    This is a stock well and about 3-5 gpm would be ideal. The well could be allowed to run year around to avoid freezing if need be.

    Any suggestions?

    Hey Shack,

    Will this gas burn? If so the heck with the water.

    No the gas will not burn. I was relieved that it wouldn’t burn, but the customer shares your opinion.

    What kind of gas doesn't burn?

    And if the "gas" locks up the pump, I have no idea how you'd remove the gas in the well. And I guess no one else does either. Sorry.

    I might test that pump to know it's good or try another.
