Oil India Limited (OIL), India’s second-largest National Exploration & Production Company, organized a study visit for school students to a Sucker Rod Pump in one of its installations at Duliajan on 21st September 2021 as a part of a celebration under Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.
Production Engineers from Oil India Limited explained to the students the functions of a rod pump. The engineers explained to the students about the artificial lift technique in a well that provides mechanical energy to lift oil from bottom-hole to surface. The students were explained how efficient, simple, and easy the technique is for field people to operate, and can be used to pump a well at very low bottom-hole pressure to maximize oil production rates.
Around 25 students from nearby schools visited the site today and we’re happy to learn about the rod pump and its function in the hydrocarbon production process.
