Comparison of Sucker Rod Pump and Progressive Cavity Pump Performances in Batı Raman Heavy Oil Field of Turkey

Şükrü MEREY [1]



Batı Raman Heavy Oil Field is the largest oil field in Turkey in terms of oil reserve potential. Since 1961, oil production continues in this field. Although mostly sucker rod pumps (SRP) are used in oil production from this field, the number of progressive cavity pumps (PCP) increases day by day. Hence, in this study, it is aimed to design SRP system and PCP system in the conditions of Batı Raman Heavy Oil Field. According to daily oil well production data of this field, these designs were completed for three cases: Case 1 (60 bbl/day), Case 2 (5 bbl/day) and Case 3 (150 bbl/day). The output results of this study indicates that less power requirement of PCP system (54.5 %, 46.9 % and 49.1 % of the power requirements of SRP systems for Case 1, Case 2 and Case 3, respectively) and its flexibility in viscous-heavy oil including solid particles make PCP system advantageous.
