Well Servicing and Repair
Well Service and Workover Series Lesson 7
A service operation on an oil or gas well is a job which is performed to improve production from a formation already producing in the well. This training manual concerns well servicing and repairs that are needed to keep an oil or gas well on production. To that extent, pump maintenance, repair of parted rods, gas lift repairs, tubing repairs, swabbing, and packer replacements are discussed. The various options are described, and some of the precautions are noted. Readable language, clearly labeled illustrations and photographs, and helpful self-test review questions help the reader understand the material. ISBN 0-88698-063-1. 1980, 68 pp.
