The Progressing Cavity Pump (PCP), invented by René Moineau, is a great innovation for the whole industry, particularly in petroleum production. Since 1980, Progressing Cavity Pumps have been widely used in the production of heavy oil well containing sand and gas.
The aim of this new edition is to provide clear related and condensed information about the principles of the Progressing Cavity Pump, including the use of recent material technologies to manufacture pump stators, with advanced elastomers and now with metals. The same applies to the drive rods and driving head, particularly with permanent magnet motors and advanced control and well monitoring, with downhole and surface sensors to control and monitor the pumping system. Data transmission and processing are improving well management and safety. Software is used to select the best pump for the well candidate. All these new technologies are worldwide applied and accepted by the market. They mean that well production can be increased and PCP's operating life can be extended with reduced operating costs.
This book is intended to provide the criteria for selecting a Progressing Cavity Pump and the operational conditions for its implementation by technicians and field development managers.

WITTRISCH Christian
Christian Wittrisch has been Programme Leader for downhole equipment since 1985 and has been at IFP (now IFP Energies nouvelles) for 34 years. He holds a Master of Sciences in electronics from Montpellier Science University. He joined Schlumberger Logging Services as a field logging engineer, then IFP Energies nouvelles in Rueil Malmaison, France. His expertise is in downhole equipments, logging tools, pumps and horizontal well technologies. He is the author of several papers and more than 50 patents, particularly on downhole equipments, PCP and multiphase pumps, on horizontal well logging technologies such as SIMPHOR to perform logging in horizontal wells, and on hydraulic fracture mapping such as the SIMFRAC system. In 2011, he was honoured to receive the special French "Marius Lavet" inventor engineering prize.
