Artificial Lift



Training Course title:
Advanced Gas Lift Training Seminar
Principal Facilitator: DPDavidson
email: gas_liftArtificialLift.pro







Course Objectives:

Achieving training results Upon completion, engineering and production operations participants will
1. Identify processes in selecting optimum gas lift system and equipment.
2. Evaluate & apply continuous flow gas system design processes.
3. Become familiar with the latest gas lift technology and optimization practices to maximize production.
4. Prepare and demonstrate by teamwork at least one value case gas lift decision based on economics and technical considerations.

At its core, these proposed objectives define the major "take-aways" that engineers and production operators will learn upon completion of training.
