Course Price: € 120

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. Boabab courses offer the best from traditional classroom learning, but you can do it in your own time.

Who’s it for?

. . . anyone keen to specialise in applying the concepts of gas lift systems with commercial well modelling software.

7. Final course examination

  • EXAM - Gas Lift Systems
    • Courses:

      On completion of the final course exam you will receive a certificate of completion of your course. Recognised by major players in the industry across the world, these certificates will help to confirm your training record and your progress within the profession. Accreditation from the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) is in progress.

    • Skills and competencies:

      Digital badges are awarded upon the successful completion of a set of skills (micro-credentials) that form a competency set for Production and Reservoir Engineers.

    • Earn credits towards a Masters Degree in Petroleum Production Engineering. Coming Soon

      Upon successful completion of a module (set of courses) a certificate will be issued which will enable the user to apply to Robert Gordon University (RGU) to take the formal assessments (coursework and written examination), successful completion of which will give credit towards their M.Sc. in Petroleum Production Engineering.
