Artificial Lift Systems - ALS
This course blends lecture, hands-on exercises, and seminar teaching styles to enhance learning. Participants work with software that allows them to design and analyze artificial lift designs, which points the way to improved efficiency, higher production and less downtime due to failures. Participants learn how to design and troubleshoot rod pumping, continuous gas lift, and electric submersible pump systems.
Other methods such as PCP, plunger lift, jet pump, hydraulic pump, and intermittent gas lift are presented as viable AL techniques.
