NISOC Localizes Strategic Pump

(Monday, May 14, 2018) 18:17

TEHRAN (Shana) -- The National Iranian South Oil Company (NISOC) has successfully acquired the technical savvy of building Sucker Rod Pump (SRP) with Chamran University.

The pump which can suck 800 barrels per day of crude oil, was installed on a drilling rig at Ab Teymour Oilfield on Sunday.

Addressing a ceremony to operate the pump for the first time, Bijan Alipour, NISOC CEO, said: "Relying on local capabilities for manufacturing oil industry parts and items is a vital strategy to survive in the sector."

A sucker rod is a steel rod, typically between 25 and 30 feet (7 to 9 meters) in length, and threaded at both ends, used in the oil industry to join together the surface and downhole components of a reciprocating piston pump installed in an oil well. The pumpjack is the visible above-ground drive for the well pump, and is connected to the downhole pump at the bottom of the well by a series of interconnected sucker rods.

Sucker rods are also commonly available made of fiberglass in 37 1/2 foot lengths and diameters of 3/4, 7/8, 1, and 1 1/4 inch. These are terminated in metallic threaded ends, female at one end and male at the other.
