Gas Lift Systems Modelling with Prosper (BACPRE06LIC1)

  • 1 dayLicense period: 1 Month Course Fee: 120 EUR


This self-paced course covers the concepts and software applications of gas lift systems performance, equipment, design, operations and diagnosis. You’ll cover lift design, workshops on lift sensitivities and will be evaluated with an exam at the end of the course. Baobab courses offer the best from traditional classroom learning, but you can do it in your own time. IChemE accredited course (7 CPD hours).
