The oil and gas industry requirements include a less obtrusive pump in size and weight, better system performance, and on-board diagnostics for production reporting. Old fashion pumpjacks can weigh up to 27,000 lbs and be the size of a large panel truck requiring a crane to set along with a substantial foundation. If weight and size can be reduced, overall installation cost could as well.
The innovative solution provides for increased performance and higher reliability in an ultracompact design where two men in a pickup truck can set the pump, saving installation time and money. The minimal footprint and low profile has no moving parts providing for a completely safe solution in urban installations. On-board diagnostics can be transmitted electronically for maintenance and production reports from any place in the world to detail operation.
