Progressing Cavity Pump

The Progressing Cavity Pumping System (PCP) is considered the faster growing artificial lift method in the last two decades in the Oil and Gas Industry.

This course will provide you with solid knowledge of the PCP theory, applications and unique challenges associated with this method. You will also get hands-on practice in C-FER’s PC-PUMP® software for the design and evaluation of PCP systems.

See the detailed course description for more information.

Para asistir a los operadores en la implementación de esta tecnología, este curso se enfoca en los fundamentos, diseño y operación de sistemas de Bombeo por Cavidades Progresivas. Adicionalmente cubriremos tópicos...

PC-PUMP® offers a current, comprehensive model database of pumps, rod strings, couplings, centralizers, rod guides, tubing, casing, driveheads, surface hydraulic motors and pumps, downhole motors, downhole drive assemblies and power cables. The majority of the specifications within the database have been obtained directly from the equipment manufacturers. The exception is information for some rod strings, tubing and casing which are based on API standards.

Because new products are continually...

PC-PUMP® contains a System Configuration module that allows users to enter wellbore geometry information, select casing and tubing sizes, build a rod string from various rod manufacturers and types, and finally select a pump to evaluate downhole. Alternatively, a downhole drive system can be specified and analyzed.

PC-PUMP® has many user-friendly features that minimize design time, such as the ability to run equipment or batch comparisons. In addition, PC-PUMP® has default settings that can be...

PC-PUMP® offers a wide variety of analysis tools to evaluate and measure the performance of your downhole system. In addition to ensuring the pump is adequately sized for pressure and volume, the software checks rod loads to ensure the rods have sufficient strength for the application, calculates side loading, assesses tubing wear and estimates fatigue life.

Important calculated variables include:

  • Pump intake and discharge pressures
  • Pump pressure loading (as % of rated pressure)
  • Hydrostatic...
