With wells being operated in harsh environments such as SAGD, producers need reliable Artificial Lift Systems. Located in Edmonton, Alberta, CFER Technologies’ high-temperature flow loop provides a safe and effective way to evaluate various pumping systems through their whole operating range.

The custom flow loop includes actual wellhead components. A 100 ft long oilfield casing correctly captures downhole wellbore fluid dynamics for a SAGD production well. The flow loop is...



When well construction is over, producers need reliable artificial lift systems to bring the oil to the surface and obtain return on their investment.

The material and design of each component is critical to achieve a profitable performance. Finding material and design issues in rods at the field is costly. It involves significant well intervention expenses resulting in production losses.

In order to improve reliability, drive rods must be qualified to handle the torsional and...
