Application and Design of Plunger Pump Lifting Viscoelastic Fluid
Daqing Oilfield has more than 10,000 million kilograms of oil through tertiary recovery every year. However, eccentric wear of sucker rod and tubing severely impede the implementation effectiveness and large-scale utilization of tertiary oil production when injecting viscoelastic fluids containing polymer. Therefore, a plunger pump lifting viscoelastic fluid is designed based on the analysis of the mechanism of eccentric wear. The principle to reduce eccentric wear is increasing hydraulic and viscoelastic friction, and expanding clearance. Due to make use of the plunger pump lifting viscoelastic, laboratory experiment and field application have demonstrated effective reduction of eccentric wear, extend the life of the sucker rod and tubing, and improve pump efficiency.
