The Flex Flow hydraulic jet pump consists of a nozzle, throat and diffuser. High-pressure fluid is pumped down the tubing through a nozzle where the fluid velocity increases, creating a low-pressure differential. This pressure differential draws in production fluid from the formation, and the mixed fluids pass through a throat and into the diffuser where the fluid is converted into low-velocity/high-pressure fluid.
Many features of the hydraulic jet pump make it a better choice in challenging oilfield environments:
- The pump operates efficiently in vertical, deviated and horizontal wells are versatile enough for multiple well pad applications and can sustain production rates up to 100,000 BF/D.
- It has excellent gas and solids handling, and can handle returns up the casing (conventional) or up the tubing (reverse flow).
- No workover rig is required for pump change-out, there are no moving parts downhole, and it can be retrieved easily by wireline or hydraulics for onsite maintenance.
- The advantageous use of hydraulic jet pumps over conventional pumps can be determined with the NODAL analysis.
Some of the main benefits of using a reciprocating rod lift (RRL) package include the ability to lift heavier loads than with a comparable hydraulic rod lift, increased control over the load due to the use of a counterbalance, and smoother operation due to the use of a crankshaft rather than a piston. RRL packages often provide a longer lifespan and require less maintenance than hydraulic rod lifts.
Whether you’re new to plunger lift principles and need the basics or seek to expand your knowledge of artificial lift systems and regulations, Well Master experts provide the correct information to meet your needs. We offer instructional programs at the Well Master training facility, or we can bring them to your location.
- Basic Plunger Lift Principles: a half-day program covers critical aspects of plunger lift system operation. From basic artificial lift principles and options to understanding well characteristics, this class will help you tackle the field with added confidence.

When it comes to artificial lift products and services, it’s essential to select a suitable option for your specific needs. There are various products and services available on the market, so research is necessary to find the best possible choice for your operation.
There are a few key factors to keep in mind when selecting an artificial lift product or service, which include:
- The type of well you are operating (oil, gas, etc.)
- The depth of the well • The volume of production
- The desired outcome (increased production, decreased costs, etc.)
Oil wells naturally produce a small amount of gas along with the oil. This gas must be removed from the well or it will interfere with the flow of oil. Artificial lift is a method used to remove the gas and maintain a consistent flow of oil.
There are many benefits to using artificial lift systems, including:
- Increased productivity
- Improved safety
- Lower operating costs
Artificial lift methods refer to the techniques used to artificially increase the flow of fluids from a well. These methods are necessary when the natural formation of the reservoir cannot provide sufficient pressure to bring the fluids to the surface.
The most common artificial lift methods are:
- Reciprocating rod lift (RRL)
- Electric submersible pumps (ESP)
- Hydraulic jet pumps (HJP)
- Plunger Lift
- Progressive cavity pumps (PCP)
- Gas lift
