This project aims to study the complete mechanism of gas lift optimization and application to help increase the oil and gas production in BAYAN wells. The BAYAN wells have been producing for several years now and the production rate have been declining over time and in need of well stimulation and gas lift optimization is the best option. Gas lift optimization is the most common artificial lift method widely used in oil production. It will help to increase the production by increasing the effective density of the oil and increasing the pressure inside the reservoir. The total gas used for oil production is constrained by daily availability limits and limits on maximum injection volume into each well. The oil produced from each well is known to be a nonlinear function of the gas injected into it and varies between wells. The problem is to identify and inject the optimal amount of gas into each well to maximize the total amount of oil production from the reservoir on a daily basis. The problem has long been of practical interest to all major oil exploration companies as it has a potential of deriving large financial benefits. Thus, it is hoped that this project will increase the production rate of BAYAN wells.
