Increase in word energy demand has encouraged the producers to search for methods to improve production and economics for oil wells. Artificial lifts improves the production and economics by increasing flow rates and optimizing the production cycle of oil and gas reservoirs. It is one of the most important methods to boost oil production from oil well. Artificial lift solutions are designed to overcome bottom-hole pressure to enable a well to produce at the desired rate. This typically involves either using a pump or injecting gas to reduce its hydrostatic pressure to provide additional lift pressure downhole.
