TUALP is a leading research consortium in developing artificial lift technologies. The overall research directions are guided collectively by the Advisory Board consisting of member representatives, and the costs are shared by all participating companies. The deliverables include:

  • Research theses, dissertations, reports and subroutines

  • Semiannual Advisory Board Meetings

  • Access to short courses taught by TUALP personnel at a reduced rate, and

  • Opportunities to conduct tailored research at TUALP facilities at a reduced rate

Since TUALP's inception in 1983, we have completed projects on hydraulic jet pumping, gas-lift, gas allocation, sucker-rod pumping, electric submersible pump (ESP) performances and other topics. All of the technical reports, together with data and supporting computer programs, are available to members.
