Course Objectives:

Artificial Lift plays a critical role in Oil and Gas Production, especially in mature oilfields. Artificial
Lift is not only accelerating the production, but also vital to the economic success of the overall
development. Therefore selecting and designing the appropriate artificial lift is important. The
course will start with Multi-Phase Flow, analyse and how to compare and select the correct
system. A thorough understanding of the principles, applications, design and operational issues
will be provided.

Who Should Attend?

Production Technologists, Engineers, Field Technicians, Reservoir Engineers
