Production Lift Companies has their own slickline services trucks with experienced operators that are trained for this specific job. They also sell and install a line of quality packers. They have their own equipment to shoot fluid levels, plus they perform superior temperature/pressure surveys that provide more in-depth analysis to better services your Gas Lift well. Field Service Technicians are fully trained and will work diligently until your well is operating at maximum efficiency. To finalize the process, they offer a state-of the art well monitoring system. This integrated approach reduces cost and delivers quality results that meet customers gas lift well needs. Production Lift Companies full services, support team is ready to meet the challenges ahead with superior products and services.

A simple artificial lift method

that is reliable and low maintenance


Advantages of Gas Lift:
Gas Lift installations can accommodate the flowing conditions throughout the life cycle of the well. It is flexible, durable, has low maintenance cost, with few moving parts and operators have more control at the surface.

Benefits:

  • Increase production from flowing wells

  • Move high volumes of fluid

  • Can handle highly deviated wells

  • Accommodates sand and solids

  • Minimum of mechanical moving parts

  • Surface equipment requires minimal maintenance

  • Operator can control production rate from surface

Gas Lift Concept:

Gas Lift is a simple artificial lift method that is reliable and low maintenance. The main components needed for operation are a compressor, values and mandrels. There are no moving parts during normal operation except the compressor, and that’s the appeal. Gas Lift is a flexible solution that can be used throughout the life of the well.

Gas Lift decreases fluid density in wellbores by reducing the hydrostatic load on formations, so that available reservoir energy can cause inflow, and commercial hydrocarbon volumes can be boosted or displaced to the surface.

Gas Lift works by injecting relatively high pressure gas from the surface to a predetermined depth in the wellbore, the operator can effectively reduce the pressure exerted on the formation and achieve desired levels of fluid production.

Gas Lift Methods:

Continuous Flow or Intermittent Gas Lift is employed depending upon the producing characteristics of the well. Some of the factors affecting the selection of the form of gas lift operation to be employed are producing rate, bottom hole pressure(BHP),productivity index (P.I.),depth of lift, and injection gas. Wells with a high P.I. and a high BHP are usually gas lifted by Continuous Flow (most wells fall into this category) and those with a low P.I. and low BHP are generally produced by Intermittent Lift.
