Artificial lift is a system used to increase the oil production from the oil reservoirs. Artificial lift comprises of the various components such as pump, motor, pump jack, drivehead etc. The integration of components form the artificial lift system. These are used to extract the oil from lowest depths of the reservoir to the surface level. Depleted oil reserves, maturing oil wells and declining oil reservoirs around the world are the major drivers for adoption of the artificial lift in the oil and gas industry. The artificial lift system generates a high pressure to lift the oil from deep oil wells to the surface area. The increasing global oil exploration activities and decreasing pressure of oil wells are fueling the market growth. However, stringent government regulations and volatility in the oil and gas industry are major threats for the market. Growing demand of the oil field equipment and rising levels of exploration activities would provide the better opportunities to the market.

The key player in the market are introducing efficient and reliable artificial lift systems to minimize the operational cost. The market is segmented based on the type, components and geography. The type segment comprises of the ESP, PCP, rod lift, plunger lift, gas lift and others. The oil producing companies select artificial lift types based on surface, reservoir, fluid and operational conditions. ESP is a system used for lifting moderate to high volumes of fluids from wellbores. Gas lift is suitable for use for extracting fluids in wells, which have a large presence of gas. The component segment is classified into pump, motor, sucker rods, separators, pump jack, cable system, drivehead, control system, gas-lift mandrel, gas lift valves and others. The market is highlighted across various geographical region such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA in order to gain the competitive insights.

Key players in the market include GE energy, National Oil well Varco, Weatherford, Halliburton, Dover Corp., Schlumberger Limited, Tenaris and J J Tech.

Nice attempt ! Adding to this, There are 8 main types of artificial lift, and these can be divided into two main categories: Pump-assisted process & Gas-assisted process.

Pump - assisted have 6 major category, they are :  Rod Pump , Linear Lift System , Hydraulic Piston Pump     
Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP) , Plunger Lift  & Progressive Cavity Pump (PCP)

Where as , Gas-assisted process has two major branches : Gas Lift & Plunger Lift.

The most important thing is that  different pumps and lift systems have their own design criteria and requirements but they all share a similar design methodology
