Title: A DOWHOLE PUMPING ASSEMBLY AND A DOWNHOLE SYSTEM
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a downhole pumping assembly for being introduced in a well inside a casing and submerged in well fluid, the downhole pumping assembly extending in a longitudinal direction and being adapted for connection with a wireline. The downhole pumping assembly comprises a pump section comprising a tubular pump housing providing a pump chamber, an inlet provided in the tubular pump housing, the inlet being in fluid communication with the pump chamber, a first valve which is a one-way valve arranged for opening and closing the inlet to allow fluid to flow into the chamber, a plunger slidably disposed in the pump chamber, a pump rod operably connected to the plunger and extending from the plunger through the tubular pump housing, an outlet provided in the tubular pump housing, the outlet being in fluid communication with the pump chamber, a second valve which is a one-way valve arranged for controlling a flow of fluid out of the chamber through the outlet. The downhole pumping assembly further comprises a linear actuator arranged in association with the tubular pump housing adapted to drive the pump rod, whereby, when the downhole pumping assembly is at least partially submerged into the well fluid, well fluid is drawn into the tubular pump housing through the inlet and expelled through the outlet in the tubular pump housing, and the pump section further comprises at least one sealing element for isolating a first part of the casing from a second part of the casing.
