A well never actually attains its absolute flow potential; therefore, artificial lift helps a well to produce at some optimum rate through various systems. With the demand of oil increasing, it is becoming important that the best efficiency possible be obtained. Matching artificial lifting capabilities with the well productivity needs –will indeed improve the efficiency of the project. As artificial lift systems are used more frequently in mature and young fields new challenges will arise such as:

  • Understanding the factors needed in order to make a selection.
  • Managing changes in production rate and increasing production efficiencies.
  • Improving efficiency of artificial lift systems in horizontal wells.
  • Knowing which artificial lift system to use to deliquefy gas wells.
  • Prevent wear and erosion in unconventional wells.
