Introduction:

Gas lifting oil wells is one of the most flexible and cost effective artificial lift techniques, the success of any gaslift system depends on an adequate and reliable source of lift gas. Deviated completions or sand production can be handled by gaslift completions, surveillance operations (PLTs, perforations) can be handled through tubing. Well entries to replace gaslift valves are relatively cheap compared to other forms of artificial lift. The objective of this course is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the gas lift system, design and operation. The course will prove valuable to production and completion engineers who are involved in artificial lift selection and the design and troubleshooting of gaslift completions. This comprehensive course will give an in-depth view of the gas-lift design, operation and troubleshooting.
