(2024024) Icing On the Cake: Surprise Benefits of Surface Controlled Gas Lift


Joel Shaw, Silverwell Energy

Surface controlled gas lift has several obvious and predictable benefits, such as increased production due to deeper injection and continuous optimization. Installations over recent years have not only proven the validity of these benefits, but they have also offered some surprising and unanticipated advantages. 

Rather than focusing on the anticipated benefits of surface controlled gas lift, this presentation will only briefly mention them. Instead, it will focus on the additional advantages that were not even considered at the onset of the projects. As is often the case with innovation, these cannot be attributed to everything going right. Instead, they are benefits that have come to light due to anomalies, surprises, and problems.
