The progressing cavity pump is a recent innovation in petroleum production. It rapidly gained an important place in the production of heavy oils containing gas. It has now been confirmed as very efficient for the production of large flow rates of light and abrasive oils. Driven by rod strings from the surface, it is a simple, rugged and cheap equipment. The aim of this book is to provide clear and condensed information related to the principles, qualities and performances of this system. This book is intended to provide the choice criteria of a progressing cavity pump and the operational conditions for its implementation by technicians and field development managers.Contents: 1. Principle and general description of the progressing cavity pump. 2. PCP characteristics. 3. Selection of a PCP. 4. Presence of gas at the pump inlet. 5. Driving from surface of PCP. 6. Installation, operation and maintenance of PCP. 7. An economical completion with the "insert" pump. 8. The electrical submersible PCP. Bibliography. Index.

Ground-Source Heat Pumps presents the theory and some of the most recent advances of GSHPs and their implementation in the heating/cooling system of buildings. The authors explore the thermodynamic cycle with calculation, operation regimes and economic indicators and GHG emissions of a vapor compression heat pump. They go on to examine substitution strategies of non-ecological refrigerants and types of compressors and heat pumps, before delving into the different GSHP systems, as well as their compared economic, energy and environmental performances using classical and optimized adjustment for various operating modes. Surface water heat pumps and ground water heat pumps are covered, and special focus is given to both vertical and horizontal ground-coupled heat pump systems, for which modelling and simulation is discussed, and experimental systems are described. Due to its advanced approach to the subject, this book will be especially valuable for researchers, graduate students and academics, and as reference for engineers and specialists in the varied domains of building services. Explores fundamentals and state-of-the-art research, including ground-coupled heat pump (GCHP) systems. Includes performance assessment and comparison for different types of GSHP, numerical simulation models, practical applications of GSHPs with details on the renewable energy integration, information on refrigerants, and economic analysis.
