Artificial lift

The way gas injection is used to lift oil and water to the surface needs to change because better control and data may mean more production. At a time when engineers are managing so many wells, they need help from machines.
Getting more out of gas lift requires understanding how gas injections interact with the oil, water, and gas flowing up the well—in other words, multiphase flow. Some papers are listed to get you started.
Economical oil extraction depends largely on reducing wear and tear of downhole equipment and tubulars through regular monitoring and batch treatment to cut the risk of corrosion and costly workovers. Having a data-driven approach to scheduling batch treatment can bring down the frequency of treatment and avoid the unnecessary use of resources.
