Gas-Lift Method of Flowing Oil Wells: (California Practice)

Description: From Introduction: "In this report the author has presented data of actual gas-lift operations in the oil fields of California. Wherever theoretical hypotheses and conclusions are given an attempt has been made to support them by field data gathered during consultation with engineers and operators. The impossibility of drawing conclusions that will apply to all wells or even to one well throughout its life is appreciated by everyone who has studied the subject, and the reader is cautioned not to accept all the data presented as being applicable to every well."
