Distinguished Lecturer: Moving the Frontiers in Artificial Lift Technology in Mature Field Operations

A significant portion of oper­ating costs in brownfields is related to lifting costs and main­tenance of artificial lift equipment. Problems can lead to premature abandonment of a field despite the fact that significant oil and gas reserves remain in the reservoir. To combat this loss of reserves and valuable energy resource, a number of measures must be taken. The pre­sentation will provide a field case showing this process and will give a detailed insight of the basket of technical solutions and the commercial impact.

Join Siegfried Muessig as he discusses the topic.
