This course covers the selection, design and diagnosis of the major artificial lift techniques for both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. You will gain an appreciation of the key concepts involved in the application of artificial lift methods and a practical understanding of their operation and optimisation. Well modelling software will be used to illustrate design and troubleshooting applications.
Course Level: Foundation / Skill Instructor: Alastair Baillie
Designed for you, if you are...
Petroleum engineering or field staff involved in the selection, design, operation or troubleshooting of artificial lift systems (beam pumps, PCPs, plunger lift, jet pumps, ESPs and gas lift) for standard or unconventional reservoir applications
How we build your confidence
This course ensures that fundamental concepts of artificial lift systems are well explained and clearly understood before progressing to more advanced topics such as design and optimisation. This technique means that participants have a solid foundation to build a deep understanding of artificial lift systems and the confidence to apply the principles learned.
