(WO) – ChampionX Corporation announced the acquisition of Artificial Lift Performance Limited (“ALP”), a provider of advanced analytics solutions for enhancing oil and gas production performance.

Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, ALP has extensive expertise in developing artificial lift optimization software designed to maximize production and extend the life of artificial lift equipment.

“The acquisition of Artificial Lift Performance is key to our strategic focus on digital growth and our vision to deliver end-to-end digital solutions that enhance the productivity and profitability of our customers’ producing assets,” said Paul Mahoney, President of ChampionX’s Production & Automation Technologies (“PAT”) business segment.
