Engineered Design. Installation of your gas lift system begins with designing the best-engineered solution. Our OPTIpod® software uses a number of well characteristics to determine the optimal amount of gas needed to deliver fluids to the surface. It also indicates the best gas-injection locations based on pressure, a critical criterion for optimal production.
Wireline Retrievable Equipment.
Our WP Series Gas Lift Valves are retrievable, injection-pressure operated valves for intermittent or continuous gas lift.
For dual gas lift systems or applications with unstable injection pressure, our WF Series of spring-loaded, production pressure-operated valves are an excellent choice.
Additional Gas Lift Equipment.
Packers - Apergy provides packers for any production application.
Both packers include large bypass areas, are designed for easy setting and releasing, and are available in premium metals and elastomers for harsher operating conditions.
Stingers. We provide stingers as part of the on/off tool assembly at the top of the packer. The stinger is often left on top of the packer with a plug in place to keep the well from flowing while the tubing is installed.
Nipples. Designed to allow common slickline plugs and equipment to be placed downhole, nipples are sized to the required I.D. profile and are available in API and premium threads and corrosion-resistant alloy trim, as desired.
Plugs. Pump-out plugs act as a temporary bridge that isolates the tubing from the annulus while setting a packer. Available in a variety of configurations, the plug is removed by simply applying pressure to the tubing.
Gas lift Innovations for Horizontal and Deep Vertical Wells.
As more wells are drilled deeper with long laterals and perforated intervals, conventional gas lift techniques cannot overcome liquid loading and pressure build-up challenges to bring production to surface. To ensure optimum reservoir drawdown in these wells, Apergy Gas Lift offers several innovative methods that take gas lift deeper in the well.
Our Annular Bypass Assembly (ABA) is a hybrid of the conventional gas lift system with packer and an open-ended, packerless system. Using tubing and gas lift valves above the packer and a bypass assembly, the ABA allows injected gas to pass through the packer.
A Dip Tube method of deep lift incorporates a crossover flow adapter and unique mini-wellbore below the packer. The assembly facilitates the deepest point of gas injection without applying additional back pressure on the formation.
Our Enhanced Annular Velocity (EAV) method of gas lift uses tubing and gas lift valves above a packer and a selectively sized injection string with internally mounted gas lift valves below.
The Marathon Annular Velocity Enhancement (AVE) system is a wireline-retrievable technology similar to the EAV. The AVE is patented by Marathon and exclusively sold and manufactured by Apergy.
A Dead String installation prevents liquid loading in wells with long perforated intervals or horizontal laterals to ensure stable production and the lowest possible flowing bottomhole pressure.
