Suitable artificial lift applications in both the Montney and Duvernay formations have been hot topic discussions for quite some time and will continue to be into the indefinite future. With a wide range of production volumes being witnessed, the most ideal form of artificial lift is not always that obvious. This high-level discussion will present the foundations of gas lift theory – How, Why, Where, etc. and will address the popularity the application of gas lift has been gaining in both these unconventional reservoirs over the past decade.
