The sucker-rod oil pumping unit productivity is influenced by lots of factors, including the operation mode of the jack pump electric drive system. Settings of the electric drive system affect the system’s energy indicators, overhaul period and oil production volume. Therefore, an effective operation of oil production units is an important factor influencing the cost of the produced oil. The paper proposes a method of selecting the speed of the driving motor of the jack pump electric drive that allows balancing the sucker-rod oil pumping unit productivity and the reservoir flow rate.

The oil extraction process requires continuous monitoring of the oil well equipment operation. One of the most effective methods of the on-line control of sucker-rod pumps operation is obtaining information from the force sensor in the polished rod or the current sensor of the pump jack driving motor. In many cases, timely troubleshooting and preventive repair allow saving large costs. Therefore, studies in the area of developing diagnostic systems and, on their basis, creating automated control systems for sucker-rod pumping units (SRPU) are of topical value.
