Oil & Gas - Upstream


石油及天然气是世界各地中最重要能源来源。尽管仍有新的油气田被发现,但运输这些原材料正越来越昂贵而且要求技术的持续提高。使用 NETZSCH 单螺杆泵系统可有效地将提取大部分存储的石油及天然气。这就要求从发现新油气田开始就必须要求与石油和天然气公司保持高度紧密的合作,并要求我们的工程师和技工不断地改善泵、驱动装置和系统。该领域恶劣的地址环境、海上开采和在 2500 米以下的深度进行安装,不断地向我们发起新的挑战。在特别重要的开采地区,通过建立 NETZSCH 泵中心,我们为世界各地的合作伙伴们创造了出色的服务环境。同时,NETZSCH 的产品正向新的应用范围拓展,如天然气钻孔脱水和浅层地热能。

Success Stories

First progressing cavity pump with submersible drive in Central Europe:
NETZSCH ESPCP prevents blowout and environmental impact from leaks

Around 30 years ago, an energy supplier in Hannover had started to use an underground deposit for gas storage. After a few years, however, it became evident during pumping of the medium that the geological horizon in which it was stored had emitted substantial oil quantities into the gas. More...

NETZSCH Upstream conveys extremely difficult media to oil and gas fields

Despite all efforts to promote renewable energies, global demand for crude oil and natural gas has continued unabated. Methane from coal seams and highly viscous oil at more than 10,000 mPas are already of commercial interest, but are just as complicated to extract. In the Qinshui Basin in China the extraction is as difficult as the extraction of oil sand mixtures from the Sudanese desert where temperatures up to 50°C can be reached. More

NETZSCH Insertable Progressing Cavity Pumps

The main feature of Progressing Cavity Pumps (rotor & stator) is their assembly inside the tubing. Thus, the pump is not connected to the production line but assembled inside it.


  • Wells with low flow – the cost of the intervention makes the use of a normal pump economically not suitable
  • Wells with a high frequency of interventions (independent of the flow)
  • Flow range 1,3 to 491 bpd at 100 rpm
  • Pressure range 100 to 240 bar
  • Pump with downhole sensors


  • Minimization of the time of intervention
  • Minimization of costs of rig
  • Minimize rig’s costs in workover services, this minimizes production losses
  • Pump substitution without removing it from the tubing
  • Pump substitution with flushby equipment
  • Up to 60 % savings in pump replacement
  • Does not require removal of downhole sensors and cable

NTU Progressing Cavity Pumps

Produced with steel tube conform with the same internal geometry as the stator (helical). Thus the elastomer has a uniform wall and produces even distribution of the elastomer. The main NTU pump feature is its lower operation and starting torque due to its lower swelling when exposed to temperature variations and chemically aggressive fluids.


  • Short pump length
  • Lower starting and operational torque
  • Longer run life under severe fluid conditions
  • Less influence due to temperature and chemicals
  • Easier to assemble in wells with deviations
  • Lower hysteresis
  • Better heat dissipation


NTM Progressing Cavity Pump

  • Maximum flexibility in the  perspective of viscosity andtemperature
  • No chemical attack on the elastomer
  • Perfectly suited in combination with thermal treatment of the wells


  • Short pump length
  • Lower starting and operational torque
  • Longer run life under severe fluid conditions
  • Less influence due to temperature and chemicals
  • Easier to assemble in wells with deviations
  • Lower hysteresis
