Advanced Gas Lift Design & Troubleshooting

The attendees will learn the best way to select the proper type of artificial lift.

The course will provide the attendees with details gas lift system, different design methods. Also, how to design the valves spacing and basis for selecting different valves.

The course will introduce the optimum unloading procedures for gas lift wells to minimize the risk and saving operation time.

Ho to optimize the production of gas lift wells and combine between continuous and intermittent gas lift system.

Trouble shooting new and old gas lift wells will be covered in the course supporting by many cases.
