“Exposing 10 Hidden Causes of Production Loss in Gas Lift Wells”

Gas lift well management is challenging because gas-lifted wells hide their inefficiencies. Severely compromised wells may continue to produce, though far less than if they were functioning properly.

Course Objective: 

This one-day course begins with an overview of the basic principles underlying operational gas lift wells. We focus on issues that arise once a well is producing. We also discuss how advanced technologies such as Artificial Intelligence can facilitate monitoring and surveillance.

Course Outline

Larry Peacock of Appsmiths will teach you important gas lift basics:

  • Dealing with poor quality field data
  • Determining if well behavior is as expected for our type of gas-lift
  • Defining the operating range of tubing
  • Quantifying back pressure limitations and how to avoid them
  • How to most efficiently use the lift gas available for each well
  • How to know and prove your lift depth
  • How to create a stable field of wells and why that’s very important
  • Cross-correlating results and making recommendations

10 Hidden Causes of Production Loss

In this course, Larry will show you how to find the answers to these 10 hidden problems that cause production loss:

  1. With limited time, how can I focus on the right wells?
  2. How to identify bad well test data that results in bad decisions?
  3. How to identify gauges and sensors that have failed and are out out of calibration?
  4. How to identify shallow lifting?
  5. How to identify multi-point injection?
  6. How to identify integrity issues?
  7. How to identify losses in the system due to back pressure?
  8. How to identify if lift gas usage is optimal?
  9. How to identify incorrect reservoir estimates for wells?
  10. How to identify the root cause of stability issues affecting the field?

How AI Helps Us Eliminate Production Loss

Larry will explain how Gas Lift Gurus uses AI to massively scale gas lift surveillance and analysis in their consulting service:

  1. Reviews every well every day
  2. Does tedious tasks that take up 90% of gas lift analysis time
  3. Helps analysts, does not replace analysts
  4. Produces understandable, consistent, and transparent analysis
