Sucker Rod Pump

Sucker Rod Pump 'aka' Beam Pumping Unit

In the Upstream Oil Industry, artificial lift means are resorted to extract Oil from wells where formation pressure is not enough for natural lift.

Sucker Rod Pump (SRP) is a common means of artificial lift on onshore wells. Sucker Rod Pump surface unit majorly constitutes of a Beam pumping unit structure and Gear reducer. SRP works on the principle of beam pumping mechanism. Beam pumping unit (BPU) is a machine for translating rotary motion form crank shaft to a linear reciprocating motion for the purpose of transferring mechanical power to a down hole pump. Gear Reducer provides necessary speed reduction from the prime mover (Electric motor) while magnifying the torque to Beam Pumping Unit.

BHEL developed SRP surface units with in-house research and development, delivered sheer performance under extreme site conditions of western fields of ONGCL, Indian Oil & Gas Major.

BHEL-Hyderabad is proud to acclaim that it is the only facility from Indian sub-continent, conferred with API-11E certification for both Beam pumping unit Structure & Gear reducer.
