What is Air/Gas Lift?

Air/Gas Lift in the oil and gas industry is a technique of raising oil from the bottom of the well to the surface by injecting compressed air or gas into the fluid within the casing

How is it important to us?

The injections of the air/gas, contributes to lighten the fluid within the casing and therefore helps in increasing the flow regime.

Air/gas lift is an effective method of increasing the oil recoverability and increasing the production rate.

Air/gas can be injected either continuously, intermittently or rotationally depending on the well productivity.

Air/gas lift technique accounts for 10% of the United States oil production and 50% of its Enhanced Oil Recovery production.
