3-Introduction to Artificial Lift

Category:

Product description

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.
