Beam Pumps - BP

Petroskills Registerbutton

The course will allow the user to become familiar with the system and when it should be used. All components will be described in detail. Design and analysis will be done using advanced computer programs. Some films will be show mostly illustrating either new products or best practices. A few problems will be solved by the class members each day. Comparisons with other systems to select the best system for a given well, whether it may be beam pumping or another method of lift; design and analysis using computer programs; films and example problems will all be part of the class. Problems addressing solids, gas handling and viscosity are addressed. Best practices are stressed throughout so a long lasting system can be developed for maximum profit. New material will also be presented on Beam Pumps in horizontal wells to dewater, and performance of gas separators. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for every two participants.

Engineers and field technicians who are responsible for the selection, operation, and maintenance of beam pumping systems.
