The production and operations in oil and gas fields are getting more complex, with more and more demanding restrictions for safety, energy efficiency, environment, which sets new technical challenges for automation and control. On the other hand, modeling and system identification tools and advanced control systems can be an important key to enhance stability and cost effectiveness and support the personnel (operators, engineers, etc.). This article will illustrate some results obtained with the application of modeling and advanced control systems for artificial lift using smart field technologies.
