Jet-Pump Lifting Systems
Under tough conditions, in remote locations, and when there’s little room for downtime, jet-lift systems work when nothing else will.
Hydraulic jet pumps are deployed in wells that are difficult to produce due to challenging well geometry, fluid composition, and reservoir conditions. Because of their shorter length, jet pumps can pass through and be set in tighter wellbore deviations compared to other pumps.
Weatherford jet pumps deliver proven performance in applications that cover a wide range of depths, volumes, and well conditions.
When used in frac-flowback applications, they deliver quick and cost-effective recovery of production-hindering fluids from the wellbore. Our jet pumps operate with no moving parts, which provides greater reliability and serviceability. The pumps are easily installed and retrieved without the need of a rig.
Weatherford delivers an unmatched level of jet-lift experience and optimization.
Our artificial-lift portfolio includes the three original jet-pump companies—Guiberson™, Oilmaster™, and Kobe®—and over the years, we have continually updated these trusted brands with in-house engineering and manufacturing innovations.
Using our proprietary Jet Pump Evaluation and Modeling Software (JEMS™ system), Weatherford experts can customize your jet pumps to optimize production.
This advanced software simulates anticipated downhole conditions and performance ranges for every possible scenario. It determines the precise nozzle and throat sizes to deliver a highly efficient, cost-effective jet-lift system, complete with simulated-performance charts.
Weatherford hydraulic jet-lift pumps give you the option of freestyle installation, which enables the pump to be circulated in and out of the well using only the power fluid.
This eliminates the need for a workover rig, which allows for easy chaning of pump nozzles and throats to optimize production according to current well conditions.
