Pump and Coiled Tubing of Fort Worth has developed a trailer-mounted service unit to transport and run the new continuous sucker rod from Fibercom. The unit includes a reel, a crane, a 500-gal. water tank to kill the well and an injector. The trailer is designed so that two men can change out a downhole pump without a work-over unit, once the continuous rod has been run in the well. At only 0.2 ppf, the continuous rod’s ultra-light weight lets operators use Fiberod’s new ECO2 Pumping Unit, which is so efficient that a 3,500-ft well pumping 8-10 bpd can run on less than 1 hp, even using solar power. The Continuous Sucker Rod is used primarily to dewater gas wells and for stripper wells. Schlumberger and British Telecom have launched the first public wireless broadband service for offshore and remote oil and gas drilling rigs and production platforms.
