  • Abstract Because compressed gas is a scarce and expensive resource, allocating an optimal amount of gas injection to a group of wells to increase the oil production rate is an important optimization problem in the gas lift operation. In this article, a particle swarm optimization algorithm is employed to assign an optimum gas injection rate for each individual well. Also, a new gas lift performance curve-fit that can reduce the time and volume of the computation is suggested. Finally, the… CONTINUE READING
