Article Cleanup Co-Ordination Point[edit]


Page is starting to come togther a bit mor now. will update the article on Gas Lift next week when back in the office. I also realised that artifical lift for gas wells is missing such as plunger ift and velocity strings. Philbentley 01:35, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Under the Components sub-section of "Rod Pumps": "The advantage of brass against carbon steel, weather is a more soft material, is its 100% resistance to corrosion." I'm not sure I understand what is meant by this. --Slippery Wing (talk) 16:44, 7 September 2008 (UTC)


Comment; The statement that "The most common method of artificial lift in oil wells is to use pumps" is debatable as most barrels are probably lifted with Gas lift method

Hmm while I suspect in a lot of the world (most notably onshore continental US) pump jacks are the most common method on a number of wells basis, I haven't seen any data comparing application of the two and I agree we shouldn't make such a strong statement. The bit about it being the most well known method I think should stay - pump jacks are somewhat iconic of the industry. TastyCakes (talk) 18:09, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Content to date is mostly just tools, like esp,pcp,rod,and gas lift. But where is the process content - the means to decide what kind of methods will be used and the criteria needed to do that? If you would like some help along these lines, just let me know. Also, this is a professional topic, and my opinion is that we should use our real name on this board. It is good as a professional to say who you are. thanks. DavidPDavidson (talk) 13:57, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
