An account is given on some of the research results of the Artificial Lift Energy Optimization Consortium (ALEOC). The methods used to organize and pre-treat the primary databases provided by the operators, and the techniques used to analyze the failure data are presented. The results present a picture of sucker rod pumping in the Permian Basin and can be used in further statistical analysis of the sucker rod pumping failures and to guide later decision-making.
