Well Optimization

Maximizing Efficiency in your Downhole Operations

TRC’s technicians are highly trained to utilize Echometer’s state-of-the art wireless fluid level and dynamometer testing equipment and the powerful Total Asset Monitoring software. The Echometer equipment provides the basis of TRC’s well analysis service. Well analysis provides a clear picture of the many variables that could impact production and potentially help mitigate lost production due to unexpected equipment failures. We recommend that every well is routinely evaluated to ensure that the well is always producing at optimal levels without damaging equipment.

Well productivity, reservoir pressure, overall efficiency, equipment loading, and well performance are derived from the combination of measurements of surface pressure, acoustic liquid level, and dynamometer cards. These data points allow for an immediate analysis of the well’s operating condition and position TRC to make recommendations in real time that can help you optimize well productivity, and ultimately, maximize production and profitability.

Whether your operation includes one well or many wells, it is easy and economical to implement TRC’s well optimization services. We will work with you to create a plan that makes the most sense based on your needs.

Subscription-based services are available for multiple wells that can significantly reduce the cost per well. This allows for a more robust data set across operations that can help identify best practices.

Implementing TRC Fiberflex® Well Analysis

Whether your operation includes one well or many, it is easy to implement TRC Fiberflex® Well Analysis. We will work with you to create a plan that makes the most sense based on your needs.

Subscription-based services are available for multiple wells that can significantly reduce the cost per well. This allows for a more robust data set across operations that can help identify best practices.

Companies that purchase new TRC Fiberflex® Fiberglass Sucker Rods will be provided with two complimentary Well Analysis visits. The first analysis will be conducted approximately one week after installation. The second analysis would be conducted approximately one month after installation or at a date requested by the customer.

The following page illustrates some of the capabilities to help provide a picture of the data available with TRC Fiberflex® Well Analysis.

Acoustic Liquid Level Tests

  • What is the depth to the top of the liquid?
  • Does liquid exist above the pump?
  • What is the percentage of liquid in the annular fluid column?
  • Does the liquid in the casing annulus restrict production?
  • What is the casing-head pressure? Does it restrict production?
  • Is gas flowing up the annulus? At what rate?
  • What is the maximum production rate available from  the well?

Dynamometer Tests

  • Is the well pumped off?
  • What is the pump intake pressure?
  • What is the pump fillage? And pump displacement?
  • Is there gas interference?
  • What is the current pumping speed?
  • Are the traveling and/or standing valves leaking?
  • Are the maximum and minimum rod loads within limits?
  • What is the well capable of producing?
  • Increased production
  • Increased well pumping efficiency
  • Improved pumping equipment design
  • Elimination on unnecessary pulling costs
  • Longer rod and pump life
  • Reduced power consumption
  • Less frequent gear box failures

Well Analysis

This is just a snapshot of the capabilities and data points that would be made available to you with TRC Fiberflex® Well Analysis. If this service is something you are interested in, we recommend discussing the capabilities in greater detail so we can help you understand how it could make the most impact at your wells. The purpose of this service is to provide you with a complete analysis of the conditions specific to your wells, including conclusions and recommendations that enable you to maximize efficiency and help build a more profitable operation.

What is Remanufacturing?

For wells using TRC’s sucker rods, our Shear Tools should be run one or two rods above your pump to enable easy and efficient retrieval of your rods. The TRC Shear tools are made to separate at predetermined tensile loads, allowing the rods to be easily retrieved. The remaining rods and pump can be subsequently pulled from the well, ensuring the integrity of the rod string.

Predator Tools Gas Separator

TRC is an authorized distributor of Predator, the first 100% guaranteed downhole gas separator. The patented gas separator enables operators to increase production as a result of consistently higher pump fillage and less downtime. Predator gas separators utilize a multi-cylinder system designed for high-volume applications and are suitable for wells producing up to 2,000 BPD and 2Mcfd.


The Global Wellhead System Authority. TRC remains vigilant in our efforts to provide our customers with a one-stop-shop for products, services, and professional industry expertise related to their beam pumping systems. TRC has partnered with Wellhead Systems Inc. to distribute surface hookup equipment. WSI is the leading manufacturer in the industry for all ALS tree equipment. WSI specializes in high quality independent wellhead equipment per API 11-1W and API 5B, sizes 2-3/8” to 13-3/8”. A product unmatched. WSI uses high quality CNC machines to manufacture their parts in the USA and has a quality assurance program second to none. TRC and WSI support industry’s efforts to improve ESG ratings. Using WSI equipment can reduce your carbon footprint by 66% per well.

When you pull your fiberglass rod string out of the well, send them to TRC where we will do a complete inspection of your rods and store them until they are ready to be put back into service.

TRC was granted a U.S. patent (US9840893) on our fiberglass inspection process.

Inspection Process

  • Deliveries are counted and assigned a work order number
  • Coupling removal
  • Cleaning of entire rod from pin end to pin end
  • Performing a thorough visual inspection of rod
  • Performing multiple pull tests to ensure rod will hold intended loads
  • Performing a wet magnetic particle inspection of the endfittings
  • Measuring and verifying dimensional tolerances
  • Gaging the endfitting threads
  • Thread lubricant applied and thread protectors installed
  • Coating the entire steel endfittings with corrosion inhibitor
  • Palletizing the fiberglass rods
  • Inspection report itemizing recoveries and rejects
