Pilot Installation of In-Well Digital Gas Lift System in PTTEP Sirikit Oilfield

Silverwell and their client presented co-authored paper SPE-192463-MS at the SPE Middle East Artificial Lift Conference and Exhibition held in Manama, Bahrain, 28-29 November 2018.

The paper describes one of the first worldwide pilot implementations of a new generation of downhole digital gas lift system. This system brings a step change in the way gas lifted fields are completed and operated. In a joint effort between operator PTTEP and service company Silverwell, this digital intelligent system was successfully installed in one development well which deviated and depth around 7500 ft in the Sirikit onshore oilfield of Thailand. Well completion and commissioning were done in January 2017.
