FUNDAMENTALS OF ROD PUMPING
“Fundamentals of Sucker Rod Lift” is a one-day seminar on the principles and operations of sucker rod lift. Each component of the sucker rod lift system is discussed including the pumping unit, rods, tubing, pump, downhole gas separator and prime mover. How the components function and interact with each other is presented so that the attendee can understand the entire operating system and how the components interact. An understanding of the reservoir and its production potential and behavior is also presented so that the attendee can optimize the well’s performance. Attendees will learn the principles of sucker rod lift systems and how to produce wells efficiently. The results of application of this information in the field will be an increase in production, a reduction in operating expense and greater profits.
