Introduction to Artificial Lift

In Oil Production

About this class

Artificial lift is a method used to
obtain a higher production rate from the well. It aims at lowering the bottom
hole flowing pressure in a well, to increase the drawdown applied on the
reservoir. Due to reservoir pressure depletion and water cut increase, the need
for artificial lift is almost inevitable. This statement is proved by the fact
that, according to World Oil Magazine, 94% of all oil producing wells in the
world use some form of artificial lift. So that is more than 900 000 oil
producing wells that use artificial lift.



This class will introduce you to the
most common artificial lift types.

Objectives:



Participants will acquire a general
knowledge of most common artificial lift types and will acquire an ability
to  choose the most suited artificial
lift method for their well.



Curriculum:



  • Artificial lift repartition
  • Introduction to ESP (Schematic, basic principles,
    advantages and limitations, application range)
