This 5-day course emphasizes the role of engineers and field operators in planning and executing Artificial Lift Operations to optimize field production and thus add to the profitability and recoverable reserves. It also emphasizes the significance of the team concept as a factor in optimizing operations success. The course is highlighted with open discussions and problem solving shared by the instructor and participants.

By the end of this course, attendees will have a working knowledge of the industry’s advanced technologies in field of designing and installing artificial lift systems in their respective operations. They will have knowledge of selecting the appropriate type of Artificial Lift for a particular application.

To provide an in-depth knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of Artificial Lift optimization. At the end of the course delegates will learn about the many methods involved Artificial Lift, about Artificial Lift equipment, how to design an Artificial Lift system, and how to install a system.
