English term or phrase: gas lift
Definition from Petex and the University of Texas Austin:
The process of raising or lifting fluid from a well by injecting gas down the well through tubing or through the tubing-casing annulus. Injected gas aerates the fluid to make it exert less pressure than the formation does; the resulting higher formation pressure forces the fluid out of the wellbore. Gas may be injected continuously or intermittently, depending on the producing characteristics of the well and the arrangement of the gas-lift equipment.

Example sentence(s):
  • The use of gas lift is not limited to wells incapable of natural flow; in many applications offshore on the UK Continental Shelf, gas lift is applied to naturally flowing wells to accelerate production. More than 20 manned installations have one or more gas lifted production wells drilled from the installation. Health and Safety Executive - UK
  • The proper measurement of production in marginal fields and new developments to optimize gas lift operations is a very important factor in the oil industry. The enhanced allocation of gas lift wells can result in immediate production payback by increasing each well production versus the injection ratio through real time well data readings. Egypt Oil & Gas
  • As the industry seeks to extend its ability to develop marginal offshore oil reserves profitably, fields requiring gas lift to generate sufficient oil production often pose a sizable challenge. Gas lift in subsea wells, using injected gas from surface, requires extensive infrastructure – the cost of which can render a marginal field uneconomic to develop. Scandinavian Oil-Gas Online

těžba proudem plynu
Primárním způsobem těžby ropy je těžba pomocí tlaku plynu, který ropu doprovází, při poklesu tlaku tohoto plynu se do ložiska vhání proud plynu kompresorem.

těžba proudem plynu

Definition from own experience or research:
Primárním způsobem těžby ropy je těžba pomocí tlaku plynu, který ropu doprovází, při poklesu tlaku tohoto plynu se do ložiska vhání proud plynu kompresorem.

Example sentence(s):
  • Ropa je vytlačována z pórů horniny do vrtu a na povrch je vytlačena expandujícím plynem nebo roztahující se ložiskovou vodou. Patří sem také těžba ropy proudem plynu a těžba čerpáním. - Martina Kopová, Univerzita T. Bati  
  • Primární metody těžby ropy využívají jen přirozenou energii ložiska a jednoduchá čerpací zařízení. Obvykle se sem zařazuje: - těžba kontrolovaným tokem, - těžba proudem plynu (tzv. plynový lift), - těžba čerpáním. - Základy zpracování a využití ropy (
