Continuous Flow Gas Lift Design as Presented in Chapter 12 – New SPE Petroleum Engineering Handbook
by: Blann, Jack R. — Added 3/29/2009 12:00:00 AMSWPSC - Continuous Gas-Lift

This paper reviews the section on Gas Lift Design presented in Chapter 12, Volume IV, Production Operations Engineering (Edited by Joe Clegg) of the new SPE Petroleum Engineering Handbook edited by Larry W. Lake, copyright 2007. Blann was the co-author of Chapter 12 along with Herald W. Winkler. This paper reviews the basic principles of the two Continuous flow designs presented in detail in the handbook. However because of time limitations no effort will be made to actually cover the details involved in the design procedure.
