Completion Design – Artificial Lift

Completion Design – Artificial Lift

Early planning of artificial lift is essential for long-term profitability of the wells. Decisions on the artificial lift method to be used may not be available at the field development planning stage.

In most cases the artificial lift systems are installed at a later stage in the field life cycle as reservoir energy is depleted and/or the wells produce water. Main methods available:

  • gas lifting (continuous);
  • beam pumping;
  • electric submersible pumping (ESP);
  • hydraulic reciprocating pumping;
  • progressive cavity pumping (PCP);
  • hydraulic . . .
