Technology from Europe: All-metal pump weathers thermal, chemical oil sands operations ///

A recent run of an all-metal progressing cavity pump (PCP) in a SAGD application for Shell demonstrated the pump’s wide operating range in terms of production volume, pressure, temperature and viscosity. The pump remained downhole during various steam and chemical stimulations designed to reduce differential pressure between the injector and producer.
