Downhole pump mechanics are a major issue for coalbed methane production in the northern New Mexico area.

The TRUST process trend analysis showed the combined failure rate for these wells reached a high of 1.47 failures/well/year (fwy). Since this rate could not maintain profi table operations, the producer initiated changes in the downhole pumping systems.
