Well production for 18.6 degree API oil produced naturally, then moved to jet pump artificial lift system sized for a capacity of 4,000 BPD of total fluids. Produced fluids driven by the jet pump were directed to a two phase separator in order to remove associated gas which was sent to a flare, while production water was designed to be stored in tanks. Production was either transported on barges or injected into a sump pit.
