Artificial lift

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.
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.
