An Artificial lift system consists of technologies and components, including various downhole pumping systems and methods, surface controls, monitoring and automation systems, deployment methodologies, and production optimization practices. In addition, reservoir studies, well design, construction, and maintenance play critical roles in the overall success of the entire Artificial Lift System.

This conference will combine all aspects of the artificial lift system and all the interrelated components and methodologies, thereby allowing participants to see the full interactive circle of technologies and competencies.

Presentations and interactive discussions will cover such diverse topics as:

  • Artificial Lift Systems’ Problems & Their Solutions
  • Innovative & Emerging Artificial Lift Technologies
  • Aggressive Applications: Heavy, X-Heavy & Light Oil and High Temperatures
  • Operations & Maintenance: MTBF, OPEX & Downtime, Design Methodologies
  • Well Completion Practices for Artificially Lifted Wells, Monitoring & Optimization
  • Mature Fields
  • Best Practices/Lessons Learned
  • Offshore/Onshore
  • State of the Art—Method Specific (ESP, PCP, Gas Lift, Rod Pump, Jet / Hydraulic Pump)
