Welcome to TUALP

Founded in May 1983 by Dr. Zelimir Schmidt, the Tulsa University Artificial Lift Projects (TUALP) is a cooperative industry-university consortium to conduct research on artificial lift technologies and strategies for petroleum production. Our primary objective is to provide our members with experimental results and theoretical analyses on the performances of various artificial lift methods, and useful tools for artificial lift applications and production optimization. Through different research projects, our graduate students are also equipped with up-to-date technical knowledge and skills so they can be productive in a research and development or technical service position.


New Canopy Structure

Construction is completed on our new TUALP research canopy structure.  It will house additional research space and facilitate even greater research productivity.


We would also like to welcome Kuwait Oil Company as a new member!
