Progressing Cavity Pumps are a widely accepted means of artificial lift; with high production, lift capacity, and system efficiency being a few of the major benefits over other oil and water pumping systems. The ability for PCP pumps to handle sand and viscous fluids make them the best solution for heavy oil production and the high gas oil ratio tolerance is beneficial in pumping mixtures of sand, oil, gas and water.

Progressing Cavity Pumps are comprised of two parts – a helical shaped steel rotor and a stator. The rotor, which is the rotating internal component of the PCP pump, is normally driven by a rod string. It is precision machined from high strength steel and coated with a wear resistance layer, such as chrome. The stator is attached to the production tubing string and remains stationary during normal operation. It consists of a molded elastomer permanently bonded to the inside of a steel tube. As the PCP pump operates, cavities formed between the stator and rotor move fluid upward in a non-pulsating action from the intake to the discharge of the pump. Pressure builds linearly from the intake to the discharge of the pump providing the necessary artificial lift to produce fluid to surface.
