Interactive Design and Evaluation Software for Downhole Progressing Cavity Pump Systems
CFER Technologies


PC-PUMP® allows users to perform quality analyses, designs and evaluations for downhole progressing cavity pumping applications. No other software is capable of providing the level of detailed and in-depth analysis of surface drives and bottomhole assemblies that can be performed using PC-PUMP.

PC-PUMP was developed as part of a multi-million dollar joint industry research project, completed by C-FER Technologies, to help improve the downhole PCP industry in western Canada.

PC-PUMP Software


  • Enhanced design tools module includes equipment specification and well survey
  • Enhanced analysis module includes specifications for operating conditions and fluid properties
  • Exhaustive database of standard and vendor equipment
  • An intuitive interface
  • Quick conversion to and from Metric and Oilfield units


  • Select optimum configuration for new wells from a complete, up-to-date vendor database
  • Compare alternatives, diagnose problems, optimize system performance and make decisions efficiently
  • Minimize downtime while problem-solving a non-productive well

A performance comparison of rod driven pumps to electric submersible PCP systems (i.e. PCPs driven by ESP motors) is also made possible. PC-PUMP is also valuable for optimizing well productivity on an ongoing basis by ensuring that pump equipment and speed matches well inflow.
