Abstract

One of the most common methods of increasing production in<br>oil fields is through the continuous injection of lift gas into the<br>tubing. The injected gas reduces the bottomhole pressure,<br>thereby allowing more oil to flow into the well. The optimal<br>amount of lift gas to inject into individual wells depends on a<br>number of factors including inflow performance, tubing and<br>surface hydraulics. Additionally, careful consideration must<br>be given to operating constraints including cost, handling<br>capacities, compression requirements and the availability of<br>lift gas.
