About This Item


Full Description

This API recommended practice covers the design and operation of intermittent gas-lift systems, including designs with chamber and plunger lift equipment. Included are the background and theory of each of these systems, as well as considerations for system design and operation. This information is intended for well engineers who seek to gain a general understanding of the theory and practices of intermittent gas-lift systems.

Not addressed in this recommended practice are absolutes in the development of an intermittent gas-lift system design or operation because of the range of variables for each well and field combination.

This document also contains three annexes. Annex A contains mathematical derivations and models of some of the most pertinent intermittent gas-lift calculations. Annex B contains a comprehensive example of an intermittent gas-lift design. Annex C describes how to use the Field (U.S. Customary) Units Calculator and SI Units Calculator.
