"Konkov's Petro-Hydraulic Drives" has developed an advanced, high performance, next generation hydraulic drive for deep well rod pump (GERON, HDDWRP type) which competes successfully with mechanical pumping units. Innovative equipment manufactured bу the Company is operated in the oil fields matching oil and gas extraction equipment bу foreign manufacturers in terms of quality and reliability.

The hydraulic drive is intended for activation of one or several deep well pumps while extracting oil from the wells equipped with the wellhead fittings, and for water extraction from deep artesian wells. GERON hydraulic drive, HDDWRP type, enables а real-time monitoring and remote control of the process, with attending personnel and equipment minimally involved.


Hydraulic Drive for Deep Well Rod Pump Operating Principle:

           Схема гидропривода en

HC - Hydraulic cylinder

RSWRP -   Rod string with  well rod pump

EM - electric motor with frequency control

HPM - Hydraulic pump motor

HT - Hydraulic tank

ECS - Electronic control system

LFS - Linear feedback system for controling hydraulic cylinder's piston position.


The hydraulic drive is operated from the pump station installed in the shelter and is controlled Ьу the intelligent electronic control system. While lifting the rod string and the formation fluid, the hydraulic pump delivers the working fluid to the rod end of the hydraulic cylinder. When this happens, the polished rod is lifted. While lowering, the working fluid is displaced from the rod end due to the rod string weight and charges the hydropneumatic accumulators with nitrogen via the multiplier or generates electrical energy via the pump-motor and recuperation generator:

The accumulated energy is used at the next throw of the sucker-rod pump, thus resulting in energy saving (up to 35%).

Advantages of the hydraulic drive, manufactured by "Konkov's Petro-Hydraulic Drives":


  • The hydraulic built-in valve prevents from rod breakages;
  • With the rod seized, the piston does not stop, but despite the well resistance, it continues moving with а moderate speed in the opposite direction.
  • The up and down movement at а moderate speed continues until the resistance is overcome. Afterwards the hydraulic drive changes over to the mode set bу an operator.


  • The duty cycle of HDDWRP drive compares favorably with the sine curve describing performance of electro-mechanical drives.
  • The hydraulic cylinder travel speeds can be regulated independently for lifting and lowering.
  • The maximal rod reverse speed is not limited by its maximal lowering speed.
  • Algorithms of the intelligent electronic control system enable maximum energy savings, increased deep well pump fillability and reduced maintenance costs.



Low weight and compactness, no foundation or heavy base, availability for service of underground equipment during workover.

Transportability to any region of Russia or near abroad.

Increased possibilities when setting operating parameters at the well site.

Simple and quick putting into operation after installation or stoppage.

Installation and dismantling of the hydraulic drive at the well site takes 3 hours, max.

M-200 ESE lightning protector to ensure safety of equipment and attending personnel.

No open moving and rotating parts, which is safer for attending personnel.

Telemetry and Drive remote control.


        Maintenance-, warranty- and extended service are carried out by the company’s specialized service team. Engineering staff engaged in repair, installation and start-and-adjustment work at oil-production sites is qualified in compliance with the established national laws and other legal acts of Russia for the following types of supervision:
