Copies of abstracts, presentations, and papers will be placed in this section as they become available.
Note: Formal papers are desired, but are not required. To make a presentation, we must receive an abstract and a copy of the actual presentation slides. Documents which have been received and are available are shown in underlined blue text. They may be accessed by clicking on them.
Summary of Abstracts --- This will be printed and made available at the workshop.
Rolling Slide Show --- This will be displayed during breaks at the Workshop.
Note: The abstracts, PowerPoint presentations, and papers to be provided for the 2011 International Sucker Rod Pumping Workshop are listed below. To download any abstract, presentation, or paper, click on the underlined link. Some of the presentations are very large and may require several minutes to download.
Note: These presentations and papers are the property of the 2011 International Sucker Rod Pumping Workshop and the companies that authored them. They are provided here for your information. They may not be altered in any way, and they may not be distributed to anyone outside of your company without the expressed written permission of the organizers of the workshop and the author(s).
