Design & Analysis Predictive Rod Pumping System Design Proper design for vertical & deviated wellbores ensures the rod pumping equipment installed is the best it can be for the application at hand. We work closely with the guiding facility to ensure the guide material, guide type and placement will protect both rod string and tubing when pumping through a deviated section. Penta's optimized vertical well designs can reduce gearbox torque, power consumption and failure frequency. Our deviated and horizontal designs get the pump as close to True Vertical Depth (TVD) as possible, without sacrificing run lives, including guiding requirements. Vertical and Horizontal Well Analyses Using Lufkin Automation's SROD program, Penta Completions will calculate side, axial and drag loading on vertical, deviated or horizontal wells. This allows Penta Completions to design a rod string with proper guiding, which will provide an acceptable run life and minmize capital costs. Inspection Services & Failure Analyses When rod quality is unknown or suspect, Penta Completions will do a complete rod inspection. If rods have failed, at the request of the customer we'll perform a complete failure analysis, including metallurgical tests of any component of a failed rod string or pump.
