Gas Lift Services
Gas lift is a type of artificial lift system that typically utilizes a high pressure gas source. Gas is injected down the annulus, through a gas lift valve into the tubing and produced up the tubing with the produced fluid. The injection gas aerates the fluid, decreasing the density of the fluid allowing it to flow to the surface. Gas lift is the most natural form of artificial lift.
The primary purpose of a gas lift system is to reduce the pressure in the wellbore. Drawdown of this pressure allows the formation to feed into the wellbore which creates production for the well. There are two types of gas lift equipment: Conventional and Wireline Retrievable. The following pages will detail these systems and the equipment needed for each.

Plunger Lift Services
Plunger lift is a method of artificial lift that uses the well’s own energy to lift fluid from a set depth in the tubing string. It is used to prevent liquid loading once the well drops below critical rate. Plungers act as an interface between fluid and gas. The wells energy is the driving force that brings the plunger to the surface. Plunger lift focuses on reducing the flowing bottom hole pressure to allow inflow from the reservoir. The open cycle is triggered by opening a valve at the surface by blowing off the head gas stored in the tubing. This creates a differential across the plunger allowing the plunger to rise against the path of least resistance and come to the surface. The plunger then goes into sales, or after-flow, time where gas is sold and fluid flows back into the tubing. After adequate sales time, the plunger then goes into the shut, or fall cycle. The shut time allows the plunger to travel back to the bottom hole bumper spring to wait until the open cycle begins again. This operation is repeated multiple times per day and is monitored for any necessary adjustments.
