Jet Pumps


Download Jet Pump Design Sheet

Jet pumps operate by converting pressurized power fluid to a high-velocity jet that mixes with the well fluids.  The resulting lower pressure brings formation fluids into the jet pump and then to the surface.  Successful applications have included setting depths ranging from 1,000 to 18,000 feet and production rates varying from less than 100 to 20,000 bpd. The systems are flexible because the downhole-pumping rate can be regulated over a wide range with fluid controls on the surface. Chemicals to control corrosion, paraffin, and emulsions can be injected downhole with the power fluid, while fresh water can also be injected to dissolve salt deposits. When pumping heavy crudes, the power fluid can serve as an effective diluent to reduce the viscosity of the produced fluids. The power fluid also can be heated for handling heavy or low-pour-point crudes. Hydraulic pumping systems are suitable for wells with deviated or crooked holes that can cause problems for other types of artificial lift.

Cimarron offers electric or gas powered skid-mounted surface units combined with a Venturi downhole tool. One of the innovative technologies packaged with the surface equipment of the Jet Pump system is the Engine Integrated Control System (EICS). The EICS combines many products into a complete integration package pre-calibrated specifically for the engine model.

Features include: 

  • Dyno testing for specific engine models

  • Advanced electronic fuel control systems providing immediate response to engine speed/load variations and fuel quality changes. Burning the produced gas is managed automatically (up to 2250BTU)

  • “Smart” ignition coils for enhanced engine diagnostics

  • Color Graphic User Interface

  • Data sharing via Modbus RS485
