Sucker Rod Pumping Volume 2
Volume 2 describes pumping unit and sucker-rod pumping systems with specific attention to the sub-surface components. It describes how static, dynamic, and cyclic loading lead to rod stress, fatigue, and failure. Sub-surface pumps, tubing, and gas anchors are also covered.
Artificial Lift introduces the techniques and technologies involved in artificial lift, with specific attention to sucker rod pumping, gas lift, and electric submergible pumps. The course provides a useful knowledge foundation to professionals in every sector of the industry, and of immediate value to field personnel. Each functional component of the sucker-rod pumping system is presented, and the major geometries of pumping units are defined with respect to their specific application and utilization. The operation of three different gas lift configurations is described. Detailed graphics illustrate the basic components and operation of electric submergible pumps. The relative advantages and disadvantages of each artificial lift method are compared and discussed. This course comprises six computer-based training modules, each one representing over an hour and a half of instruction and exercises.
