Artificial Lift Methods
The Artificial Lift Methods is a VILT (Virtually Instructor Led Training) course delivered in real time. The course will be taught in 4 hour sessions over a 3 day period and is delivered using the WebEx platform. Our virtual training methodology incorporates passive and active learning in an effort to achieve the best virtual training experience.
This course will allow the participants to learn the fundamentals of the following Artificial Lift Methods: Gas Lift (GL), Rod Pumps (RP), Progressive Cavity Pumps (PCP) and Electrical Submersible Pumps (ESP) systems.
The main components of every system and their functions are examined. Operational principles and strategies for field production optimization are discussed in class.
Each student will need the following to attend:
