Plunger Lift Training

Shale Tec LLC is pleased to offer a 2-Day Plunger Lift Training Course and a 1-Day Plunger Lift Workshop. Either course can be an open registration regional class or an in-house event. Shale Tec’s 2-Day Plunger Lift Training Course focuses on answers to questions like:

  • Which wells are plunger lift candidates?
  • How do I know when liquid loading begins?
  • What are the 4 stages of plunger lift and why is each important?
  • What are some key selection criteria for plunger lift hardware?
  • Which algorithm is best?
  • How do I optimize and troubleshoot wells?

Shale Tec’s 1-Day Workshop utilizes the PDCA approach (Plan, Do, Check, Act) to analyze (and modify if needed) a number of your plunger lifted wells. Participants learn the approach, and in many cases, the wells analyzed see immediate improvement – often paying for the cost of the workshop.

If your wells could benefit from a deeper understanding of plunger lift, contact Shale Tec today ([email protected])!
