What is Gas 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.
