How to cost-effectively retrieve the final drops of crude from aging oil fields.
We developed the LEAP System, a single artificial lift system that can be used for the life of the well. This linear electromagnetically actuated pump is effective with wells producing as little as a single barrel a day and is seen as a potential replacement for the nodding donkey pump. Compared to the millions of dollars needed to drill a new well, adding artificial lift technology is a cheaper alternative to maintain production from older wells.
We spent less than a year to design and deliver the 90Kw, LEAP tubular linear motor. Five months were spent in multi-physics modeling and another four months were spent building and testing this new, disruptive technology.
