High Gas-Oil Ratio Well Liquid Unloading

The course is designed to provide a  basic understanding of gas well liquid unloading methods.

This course covers fundamental topics of artificial lift methods and other methods using foaming agents to reduce the specific gravity of fluids in the wellbore.

At least one exercise is presented for each Artificial Lift method covered in this course. This will help to enhance the appreciation of the concepts presented and gain further insight of the processes involved in gas well liquid unloading.
