Artificial Lift Team Welcome to the artificial lift team which came into existence in October 2008 when, the Well surveillance Group was created. This team directly contributes to company’s production target and hence its Importance needs no emphasis. The activity level of this team is increasing rapidly. For example, at the time of team’s birth, there were a total of around 280 artificial lift installations and this number now is well over 660. Artificial lift installations are projected to touch close to 2300 mark by the year 2015/16 which is more than threefold increase from the current level, a quantum jump.
