Permian Basin Pumpjack

by Midland Petroleum Museum

Published on February 17, 2016

The Building Bots program team created a pumpjack. Pumpjacks are used to mechanically lift liquid out of the well if not enough bottom hole pressure exists for the liquid to flow all the way to the surface. Pumpjacks may be common in the Permian Basin, however, this one is the first of its kind!
