Gas Lift

Various options for continuous- or intermittent-flow production

Perforated Gas Lift

Maximize production in any environment

Our gas lift products give you the quality and flexibility you need to maximize production. Gas lift installations manage abrasive materials, such as sand, and can be used in low-productivity, high-gas/oil ratio-wells or deviated wellbores. With our gas lift products, slickline-retrievable gas lift valves can be pulled and replaced without disturbing tubing if designs or system performance must be changed. 

We provide conventional and unconventional lift systems and components for both continuous- and intermittent-flow production. Whereas our conventional systems maximize production in shallow wells, our line of unconventional lift systems are pressure barrier qualified and rated to a higher pressure to provide reliable performance in deepwater and subsea wells. The higher pressure rating and pressure barrier features mean deeper depths of gas injection and enhanced wellbore integrity. System components, such as side-pocket mandrels, extend the run life of the gas lift system and eliminate workovers—ultimately lowering costs over the life of the well.
