Abstract

AL (Artificial Lift) is a software program for selecting the pumping processes best suited to an oil well. It integrates an expert system which manages the knowledge of the subject and organizes the implementation of a set of algorithmic programs for making technical assessments. AL was developed at the University of Missouri-Rolla, Petroleum Engineering Department. This article describes in detail the expert-system part and gives an example of the use of the complete system.
