Gas Lift Optimization and Design with Existing Mandrels
What you will learn
This class is the 4th of the series of courses related to gas lift activation. It follows the courses “Forms of Gas Lift”, “Gas Lift equipment” and “Gas Lift unloading sequence and SPM design”. It explains how you can optimize the production of a Gas Lift well with its current Gas Lift design as well as how you could optimize it by changing the valves using the existing Gas Lift mandrels.
According to many industry experts, Gas Lift (GL) is the least understood artificial lift method, but the reason behind that is not its complexity. When you do things wrong on other artificial lift methods (e.g. ESP) your well will stop producing, a Gas Lift well will often keep producing even with a bad design. Hence many operators do not realize that their Gas Lift well is not producing at its full potential and don’t pay attention to it.
There is, therefore, very significant potential for production increase by understanding the principles of Gas Lift and this is a huge opportunity for any engineer willing to master this activation method.
This class is the 4th of the series of courses related to gas lift activation. It follows the courses “Forms of Gas Lift”, “Gas Lift Equipment” and “Gas Lift Unloading Sequence and SPM Design”. It explains how you can optimize the production of a Gas Lift well with its current Gas Lift design as well as how you could optimize it by changing the valves using the existing Gas Lift Mandrels. Students will be guided to make the Gas Lift Design of a well using Abacus (which mandrels should be equipped with a valve, a dummy or an orifice) so that they can understand the principles behind these choices and how to select their parameters properly (e.g. kick-off pressure). The last part of the training explains how to make such a Gas Lift Design using the software – Prosper. Students will be guided within the “Gas Lift design existing” form in Prosper (meaning of each parameter to be filled and recommendation on the best option to select).
