About this training course

Gas-lift is one of the predominant forms of artificial lift used for lifting liquids from conventional, unconventional, onshore and offshore assets. Gas-lift and its various forms (intermittent lift, gas-assisted plunger lift) allows life of well lift-possibilities when selected and applied properly. This 5-day training course is designed to give participants a thorough understanding of gas-lift technology and related application concepts.

This training course covers main components such as application envelope, relative strengths and weaknesses of gas-lift and its different forms like intermittent lift, gas-assisted plunger lift. Participants solve examples and class problems throughout the course. Animations and videos reinforce the concepts under discussion.

Unique Features:

  • Hands-on usage of SNAP Software to solve gas-lift exercises
  • Discussion on digital oil field
  • Machine learning applications in gas-lift optimization

After the completion of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamental theories and procedures related to Gas-Lift operations
  • Easily recognize the different components of the gas-lift system and their basic structural and operational features
  • Be able to design a gas-lift installation
  • Comprehend how digital oilfield tools help address ESP challenges
  • Examine recent advances in real-time approaches to the production monitoring and lift management

This training course is suitable and will greatly benefit the following specific groups:

  • Production, reservoir, completion, drilling and facilities engineers, analysts, and operators
  • Anyone interested in learning about implications of gas-lift systems for their fields and reservoirs
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced

The training instructor relies on a highly interactive training method to enhance the learning process. This method ensures that all participants gain a complete understanding of all the topics covered. The training environment is highly stimulating, challenging, and effective because the participants will learn by case studies which will allow them to apply the material taught in their own organization.

Course Duration: 5 days in total (35 hours).

This course is also available through our Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) format.

Prerequisites:

  • Understanding of petroleum production concepts.
  • Each participant needs a laptop/PC for solving class examples using software to be provided during class. Laptop/PC needs to have a current Windows operating system and at least 500 MB free disk space. Participants should have administrator rights to install software.

Your expert course leader has over 35 years’ work-experience in multiphase flow, artificial lift, real-time production optimization and software development/management. His current work is focused on a variety of use cases like failure prediction, virtual flow rate determination, wellhead integrity surveillance, corrosion, equipment maintenance, DTS/DAS interpretation. He has worked for national oil companies, majors, independents, and service providers globally. He has multiple patents and has delivered a multitude of industry presentations. Twice selected as an SPE distinguished lecturer, he also volunteers on SPE committees. He holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s in chemical engineering from the Gujarat University and IIT-Kanpur, India; and a Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Tulsa, USA.

Highlighted Work Experience:

  • At Weatherford, consulted with clients as well as directed teams on digital oilfield solutions including LOWIS – a solution that was underneath the production operations of Chevron and Occidental Petroleum across the globe.
  • Worked with and consulted on equipment’s like field controllers, VSDs, downhole permanent gauges, multiphase flow meters, fibre optics-based measurements.
  • Shepherded an enterprise-class solution that is being deployed at a major oil and gas producer for production management including artificial lift optimization using real time data and deep-learning data analytics.
  • Developed a workshop on digital oilfield approaches for production engineers.

Patents:

  • Principal inventor: “Smarter Slug Flow Conditioning and Control”
  • Co-inventor: “Technique for Production Enhancement with Downhole Monitoring of Artificially Lifted Wells”
  • Co-inventor: “Wellbore real-time monitoring and analysis of fracture contribution”

Worldwide Experience in Training / Seminar / Workshop Deliveries:

  • Besides delivering several SPE webinars, ALRDC and SPE trainings globally, he has taught artificial lift at Texas Tech, Missouri S&T, Louisiana State, U of Southern California, and U of Houston.
  • He has conducted seminars, bespoke trainings / workshops globally for practicing professionals:
    • Companies: Basra Oil Company, ConocoPhillips, Chevron, EcoPetrol, Equinor, KOC, ONGC, LukOil, PDO, PDVSA, PEMEX, Petronas, Repsol, , Saudi Aramco, Shell, Sonatrech, QP, Tatneft, YPF, and others.

One of the best instructors. Very knowledgeable and professional, kind, funny and very understandable. Thank you very much.

Senior Petroleum Engineer, Kuwait Oil Company

Highly recommended course for all Petroleum Engineers, really helpful for myself with less than 5 years in the role. Very applicable in my daily work and also fill in the technical gaps that I have in the understanding of gas lift.

Petroleum Engineer, Petrofac

This training was very helpful. I learned a great deal and provided the right depth and background on each form of lift so that I could be familiar with many different forms as I encounter them throughout my career.”

Production Engineer, Repsol

The course content was very interesting and he covered all lift methods and discussed topics/challenges relevant to horizontal wells at length.”

Senior Researcher – Unconventionals, Statoil

The trainer was excellent, extremely professional & knowledgeable. I can confidently say that I have closed some gaps from the GL technical point of view.
