PCPs enable pressure-deficient, heavy oil, sandy wells to optimize production by a high efficient positive displacement pump consisting of only two pieces: Rotor and Stator.
PCPs can cover a wide range of fluid volumes and are less limited to viscosity, free gas, water cut or solids than most other methods. They are able to pump in a range of 5 - 3,500 BPD depending on casing size, setting depths, temperature, and pressure limitations. Halliburton PCPs can handle volumetric efficiency in the range of 75% - 95%. Viscosities over 30,000 cp, sand content up to 40% and water cut up to 100%.
