System offers quick payback for multi-phase pumping applications

October 27, 2008

The patented progressing cavity solution provides multi-phase pumping applications within the oil and gas industry. The low total cost of ownership and superior pumping efficiency has turned marginal wells profitable again in months, according to the manufacturer. The system allows all fluids produced at the well site including oil, water and gas to be transported simultaneously through one pipeline to a central processing station. Its exceptional abrasion-resistance allows for smooth transfer of sandy fluid as well. The unit is capable of generating flow rates up to 60,000 BFPD with suction pressures up to 900 PSI and discharge pressures up to 1,200 PSI. Additionally, the system features a stator elastomer formulation that exhibits exceptional resistance to aromatics.
