Artificial lift

This paper discusses the field implementation of a downhole chemical methodology that has positively affected overall productivity for a mature Kuwait field.
Rod lift failure frequency in horizontal wells drives significant operating expenses. Understanding why these failures occur leads to a solution — production optimization with automated setpoint changes, which can extend the life of this equipment and reduce downtime.
This paper describes an artificial-lift technology, a subsurface compressor system, that simultaneously removes liquids, increases gas production, and improves recoverable reserves in gas wells.
