SHANA — The third generation of sucker-rod pump (SRP) was installed for the first time in West Karoun oil fields cluster at well No. 14 of North Yaran field and increased the oil production capacity of this joint field by 500 b/d.
Mohammad Ali Ajdari, head of the North Yaran oil field development project at Petroleum Engineering and Development Company (PEDEC), told Shana: “After about a year of successful installation of the first downhole pump (ESP) in this joint field, this July, for the first time in the West Karoun oil fields cluster, the third generation of sucker-rod pumps called SRP was installed in North Yaran Field.”
He continued by stating that this pump was installed as a pilot and was launched on July 4, adding the performance of the pump was evaluated based on the manufacturer’s instruction and the production conditions of the well.
According to Ajdari, simplicity of installation and removal, long life of the pump and high energy efficiency equipment for low depths and production flow, low maintenance costs and lower capital costs compared to other methods of overflow are the most important advantages of these pumps.
He added that this domestically manufactured pump would increase productivity of the field by at least 500 barrels per day.
