About this book

This book details the major artificial lift methods that can be applied to hydrocarbon reservoirs with declining pressure. These include: the sucker rod pump, gas lift, electrical submersible pump, progressive cavity pump, and plunger lift.

The design and applications, as well as troubleshooting, are discussed for each method, and examples, exercises and design projects are provided in order to support the concepts discussed in each chapter. The problems associated with oil recovery in horizontal wells are also explored, and the author proposes solutions to address the various extraction challenges that these wells present.

The book represents a timely response to the difficulties associated with unconventional oil sources and declining wells, offering a valuable resource for students of petroleum engineering, as well as hydrocarbon recovery researchers and practicing engineers in the petroleum industry.


About the authors

Dr. Tan Nguyen holds a Ph.D. degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Tulsa. He worked as a post-doctoral research associate at the Tulsa University Artificial Lift Project for two years. He is currently an associate professor and head of the petroleum program at New Mexico Tech. Dr. Nguyen was the founder and director of Production and Drilling Research Project (PDRP) at New Mexico Tech since 2011. His current research projects focus on artificial lift methods for horizontal wells and unconventional reservoirs, directional and horizontal drilling, rheology of drilling fluid, multiphase flow, well completion, and well stimulation. Over the years, Dr. Nguyen has taught many courses for universities and industries. Dr. Tan Nguyen are a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and American Association Drilling Engineers (AADE).
