Sucker Rod Pump Application

About the Course

Sucker rod pumping (SRP) is widely used artificial lift method for oil production. To manage sucker rod pump system, engineers and technicians should be charged with good knowledge of the corresponding principles and applied equipment. Also, having knowledge to optimize and design sucker rod pumping system is the main request for a successful application. To know how to analyze the sucker rod system and identify the operating conditions are the key prerequisites for efficient operation of SRP system. Special attention is directed towards acquiring the practical knowledge to make a troubleshooting diagnoses using qualitative and quantitative interpretation of recorded dynamograms. Detailed explanations of sucker rod mathematical model provide enough knowledge to understand the application of real time pump-off and SCADA systems.

Designed for

Production engineers who already have basic knowledge of sucker rod application, as well as technical personnel involved in maintenance, control and monitor of the SRP system.
