EuALF 2018 EUROPEAN ARTIFICIAL LIFT FORUM – “Maximising Economic Lift”, Sponsored by Aramco

13th & 14th June 2018, AECC, Aberdeen

Download  programme here.

The newly empowered Oil & Gas Authority expects “Maximising Economic Recovery” to become a byword for good Asset stewardship.

Artificial Lift is key to this and “maximising economic lift” can only be achieved by innovative technology and collaboration across traditional operator/service company and operator/operator boundaries. The biennial EuALF is a well-established forum organised by SPE Aberdeen for artificial lift professionals specifically to promote technology, innovation and collaboration throughout the Artificial Lift Life Cycle.


An exclusive survey conducted by the SPE EuALF has identified the top 5 Artificial Lift Life Cycle issues for today’s Operators. All will be discussed at the Conference and the programme will be released here soon.

  1. Reliability and Root Cause Failure analysis: a design or a QA issue?
  2. Costs: Why are costs of retrofit, repairs and replacement so high?
  3. Condition monitoring & Big Data analysis – what do we do with it all?
  4. One size fits all: how do we design for life of field conditions?
  5. Complex conditions: how to model and design transient condition
