Gas Lift Best Practices

This blog was inspired by a posting by Jim Hall (retired Shell Gaslift SME) on LinkedInin 2020 where he shared his tally book-sized gas lift best practices. We’ve taken his ideas and given them a little bit of an update for modern technology and tools. We hope you find this useful. 

Gas lift is an appropriate and effective lift method for many well types, especially gassy wells. Robust and reliable, gas lift wells continue to produce — even when operating inefficientlyHowever, this also creates a huge opportunity if we can diagnose when a gas lift well is being operated sub-optimally then it gives us an opportunity to recover a missing wedge of production. You do not have to let lower production be the norm using these best practices you can improve the management of your gas lift wells and data to maximize your well production.

Gas Lift Optimization and Diagnosis - That Takes No Time!

Over the last few blogs we’ve talked a lot about the value of automated processing of realtime data in the oilfield. Today I’d like to ‘land the plane’ a little and make that more tangible for wells produced using gaslift…as well as make this a quick read.
