A technology has emerged for deep low flow / volume gas well applications.
Compared with ESP, rod pump, and hydraulic piston pumps, it appears to be a 'game changer' and a good candidate for any type of downhole deliquification for natural gas and CBM applications.
Criteria: Capital cost, operating cost,installation cost, repair frequency and low volume pumping ability applications all favor the linear motion pump - LMT - linear motion technologies.
Downhole arrangement - it uses an electric downhole drive connected to a hydraulic downhole piston pump. Advantage: it can also operate in slim hole conditions - inside a 2 3/8 inch diameter well tubing.
