API RP 19G5
Operation, Maintenance, Surveillance, and Troubleshooting of Gas-lift Installations
|Publication Date:||1 July 2019|
This recommended practice (RP) provides guidance, background, and requirements for the application and use of gas-lift wells and their related systems. Discussion is included for operation, maintenance, surveillance, and troubleshooting of gas-lift wells and installations.
This RP is intended for use by managers, production technologists, reservoir engineers, facilities engineers, production engineers, well testing engineers, well analysts, operators, and researchers who want to gain a general understanding of gas-lift wells and gas-lift operations. It can be used to prepare and present courses on gas-lift wells and operations.
This RP focuses primarily on continuous gas-lift. However, use of intermittent gas-lift, dual gas-lift, and gas-lift for gas wells is mentioned.
