(2022001) Tubing Back Pressure on Rod Pump Wells

Presenters

Mike Brock, PLTech, LLC

One of the most misunderstood issues in sucker rod pumping is tubing back pressure. The great majority of wells that I have encountered in various fields have back pressure valves installed on the tubing side of a wellhead. However, a great many field personnel do not understand why back pressure is applied, how much to apply, and/or how it affects a well’s performance. This paper will discuss the why, when, and how tubing back pressure is applied along with some misunderstandings and issues of its application.
