Artificial Lift and Production Optimisation–Techniques and Solutions

Production and Operations


This course will help develop a solid foundation in all forms of lift and the concepts of the selection process to maximise production and return on investment. After introducing participants to the need for an artificial lift system, training will focus on each of the following lift methods: Gas Lift, Reciprocating Rod Lift, Progressing Cavity Pumping, Electrical Submersible Pumping, Hydraulic Jet and Piston Pumping, Plunger, and Capillary System. For each lift type, the course covers advantages and limitations of each system, application considerations, and sample performance predictions. Animations, field cases, and example-calculations are used to reinforce concepts. Additionally, importance of flow measurements and reservoir monitoring for overall production optimization is also covered.

Course Length

1 Day

Why Attend?

This class helps ensure a broad view of artificial lift, particularly when in-house expertise is limited to one-or two-lift systems.

Who Should Attend

Anyone interested in learning about lift systems application. Production and field operations engineers, operators, geoscientists, and reservoir engineers who wish to understand the implications of lift systems on their field/reservoirs.

Special Requirements

Calculator for example calculations
