Trico downhole jet pumps

Trico downhole jet pumps

Trico downhole jet pumps

Hello there! I'm looking forward to building a PROSPER/GAP model of my field, which is comprised of a couple of wells lifted by jet pumps. It's an old field, and most of the information around here has been lost. So i'm trying to find datasheets or performance data from Trico oil jet pumps in order to fill in the PROSPER jet pump database. Does anyone in the forum has this information? can you please share?

Please let me know!

RE: Trico downhole jet pumps

Contact your local Weatherford rep. Trico was a merger of the jet-pump divisions of three pump manufactures (Kobe, Guiberson, and National), most of the oil-well pumps are Kobe, but not nearly all. Weatherford bought Trico a few years ago and there might be someone in your local office who can tell you what your company used to buy. Are they packed-off or tubing free? Can they be floated or do they have to be pulled? The operators can answer those two questions, and then your Weatherford rep should be able to give you pump curves if he can find nozzle and throat configurations.
