This complete review of gas lift theory and practice focuses on the technical developments over the last 20 years. The reader will learn to design a gas lift installation that ensures the technical and economical optimum production of wells or whole fields alike.
Gas lifting can be used throughout the whole lifespan of an oil well: from the time it dies until its abandonment. The Gas Lift Manual is a thorough, handy reference that is essential to the practicing engineer needing to successfully perform this type of artificial lift project. In his manual, Takacs imparts more than 30 years experience and research in the artificial lift methods arena. He starts the manual with an introduction to gas lift, and then moves on to the various parts of the gas lift model, including analysis and troubleshooting, as well as, common gas lift malfunctions. This book will be particularly useful to those needing to research this technology, as the author has supplied extensive resource references to other literature sources.
