This course covers modern rod pumping system optimization and the knowledge you need to understand how rod pumping systems work, how to design and analyze them, and what affects their performance. Since a failure in any part of a rod pumping system will result in production loss and is expensive to repair, this course will cover all subjects related to the proper equipment selection, system design, diagnostic analysis of existing systems, pumping unit balancing, and in general, all techniques that minimize failures and maximize system efficiency.
My goal in developing this course is to make learning about rod pumping optimization practical, easy, and fun. Using an electronic tablet such as the iPad is a modern and convenient way to access this type of information whenever and wherever you need it. The eBook format ensures the book will not get stale since you can always download the latest version which will be updated as rod pumping technology changes and new equipment, new software versions, and new technologies are developed.
