Title: Production booster in a flow line choke

Abstract: A flow line choke includes a venturi to draw a vacuum in the choke body. This vacuum creates a pressure differential between the producing strata below and the choke body, thereby increasing flow of fluid from the well. A gas recirculation line from the outlet of the choke, through a compressor, back to the choke, provides a source of pressurized gas through a bore in an injector stem to create flow through the venturi.
