Artificial Lift Technology

4.5 Average client rating (based on 71 attendee reviews)

The course will provide basic knowledge of Artificial Lift. Review of fluid properties, multiphase flow regimes and all lifting methods: rod pumps, progressive cavity pumps (PCP), gas lift and electrical submersible pumps (ESP),  Discussion of alternate deployments and multi-sensor applications for surveillance and optimization. Strategies and best practices for field production optimization are discussed. The effectiveness for NODAL systems analysis for lifting performance optimization is demonstrated. Workshop format with presentations, discussions and hands-on exercises.
