Several thousand new pumpjacks are installed in Alberta oil fields each year. Hence, for obvious reasons, developing efficient Pump-jack technology is important to the oil and gas community. The project investigates the process and control systems with particular applications in dynamic modeling of oil and gas well pump-jacks which is also known as the sucker-rod pumping systems. The objective of the MITACS Accelerate Internship is to develop a robust data- driven, realtime modeling methodology of pump-jack systems using the data of the gathering downhole well characteristics. The information from the developed real-time monitoring system will play an important role in designing and implementing suitable control schemes to optimize the pump-jack process. The anticipated results will be potentially useful to oil and gas industry in developing an efficient pump-jack system so that the productivity can be maximized.
