API Gas-Lift Task Group

This section contains working copies of API 19G (formerly API 11V) Gas-Lift Task Group documents.  These documents are drafts that are being developed by the API 19G Gas-Lift Task Group.  They may be opened, downloaded, reviewed, and edited as desired, by any member of the Task Group.  They may NOT be copied or distributed to anyone that is not a participating member of the Task Group.

The API (American Petroleum Institute) committees listed here are supported by the members of the associated committees, who come from various Operating Companies, Service/Supply Companies, Universities, and Consultants.

Notes

We provide pertinent information on the American Petroleum Institute (API) that are related to artificial lift. Although our primary focus is currently on gas-lift, we intend to address a broad range of artificial lift systems and topics. If you are interested in seeing other API or ISO documents listed here, please let us know.

We are anxious to hear from you. If you have any comments on ways we can improve this web site to better meet your artificial lift needs, please drop us a line at contact@alrdc.com.

Some of the documents retain their former API RP 11V title, and some of the newer ones are moving to the API RP 19G title.
