Continental uses TF Insert in North Dakota
Without changing anything but the TangentFlow (TF) insert on their downhole pumps, Continental Oil & Gas is excited to see significant increases in Oil Production. Production Engineers have found that they are getting substantially less friction on their upstroke. They are also able to get an extra 8 feet out of their upstroke after simply changing over to the TF insert. Production Engineers are impressed and will be also trying the TF insert on the Travelling Valve; they will be using the TF insert for their other fields in North Dakota to optimize their pump efficiencies.
