Lifting Solutions Presents at 2023 ALRDC Workshop

Lifting Solutions, a leading artificial lift provider of innovative solutions in the oil and gas industry, is pleased to announce the participation of team members Taylor Krenek and Reed Vogt at the upcoming 2023 Sucker Rod Pumping Workshop. The event, organized by the Artificial Lift Research and Development Council (ALRDC), will take place in Midland, Texas, from August 28 to 31, 2023, and will showcase cutting-edge advancements in sucker rod pumping technology.

Taylor Krenek and Reed Vogt, in collaboration with Anthony Allison from Oxy, co-authored a paper titled “A New Approach to Continuous Rod In The Permian Basin,” previously presented at the 2023 Southwestern Petroleum Short Course (SWPSC) and highlights a new approach to continuous sucker rod implementation. The paper addresses the historical challenges that hindered the acceptance of continuous rod technology and introduce innovative solutions to overcome them.

The authors emphasize that the adoption of continuous sucker rod in pump applications faced obstacles such as inadequate service equipment, welding difficulties, and limitations in metallurgy selection, leading to premature failures and operational setbacks. The proposed approach introduces a robust service infrastructure to facilitate efficient installation and repair processes.

Taylor Krenek and Reed Vogt will share insights from multiple successful installations in the Permian Basin during the 2023 Sucker Rod Pumping Workshop. These installations exemplify the real-world benefits of the proposed approach, showcasing extended run times, reduced maintenance frequency, and an increased capacity to produce substantial volumes at significant depths.

Lifting Solutions remains committed to pushing the boundaries of innovation in the oil and gas sector, and Taylor Krenek and Reed Vogt’s participation in the upcoming workshop exemplifies this dedication. Their expertise promises to inspire attendees and contribute to the ongoing evolution of sucker rod pumping technology.
