Artificial Lift


Production & Operations

Course Duration

5 days

Delivery Method


This course presents the design and operational aspects of artificial lift in great detail. The participant will be able to model the flow in artificial lift completions and examine the impact of key well performance parameters such as tubing size and reservoir inflow properties. Moreover, the course discusses the artificial lift method selection and design based on long term production forecast.
