IMPACT OF GAS LIFT INJECTION RATE ON OIL PRODUCTION RATE
As worldwide energy demand continues to grow, oil and gas fields have spent hundreds of billions of dollars to build the substructures of smart fields. Management of smart fields requires integrating knowledge and methods in order to automatically and autonomously handle a great frequency of real-time information streams gathered from those wells. Furthermore, oil businesses movement towards enhancing everyday production skills to meet global energy demands signifies the importance of adapting to the latest smart tools that assist them in running their daily work.
A laboratory experiment was carried out to evaluate gas lift wells performance under realistic operations in determining reservoir pressure, production operation point, injection gas pressure, port size, and the influence of injection pressure on well performance. Lab VIEW software was used to determine gas passage through the Smart Gas Lift valve (SGL) for the real-time data gathering. The results showed that the wellhead pressure has a large influence on the gas lift performance and showed that the utilized smart gas lift valve can be used to enhanced gas Lift performance by regulating gas injection from down hole.
