... of installing a plunger-lift system with the multistage tool is usu- ally about 10% of the amount required for a pump-jack installation. A mul- tistage plunger-lift system is entirely mechanical, operating only on the well s energy, and has no power or fuel requirement. Thus, operation and maintenance costs...
