New Technology for Sucker Rod Pumping

 

As applications and problems of pumping sucker rod lifted wells continue to evolve, the industry is posed to develop solutions to current and future problems. This Break Out Session will present some recent new sucker rod lift pumps, pumping units, and rod developments as a starting point for the session. Other new technologies that attendees are aware of will be solicited. Finally, a discussion will be held on what problems are continuing to plague the operators and equipment providers as well as what is envisioned for new equipment developments.

Dealing with Pumping Wells Completed in Shale Formation

 

With the majority of new exploration and development currently centered on shale plays, the verdict on rod pumping this unconventional play is yet to be defined.  More wells are reaching their initial artificial lift limitations and this breakout session will cover the current problems and concerns of utilizing rod pumping in efforts to achieve maximum drawdown and productivity. The objective of the discussion will be to capture, inform and review what methods are currently in place and being developed to successfully manage rod pumping wells in shale formations.

 

  Summary

Handling Solids, Sand, and Scale

 

Particulates such as sand, iron sulfide and scale frequently cause problems with sucker rod pumping and can lead to accelerated wear, pumping inefficiency, and/or premature pump pulls for repair.  During this break out session we will discuss solutions to particulate pumping problems with input from the attendees.
