We Care - About our customers and our team

Integrity - In our actions and our products

No Accidents - By our vigilance and our process

Black Mamba Rod Lift cares for the industry, the customer, and the people we serve. We create exclusive and patent-protected product lines (namely, The Black Mamba) related to sucker rods, sucker rod guides, sucker rod centralizers, and sucker rod protection, without limits or compromise. The Black Mamba also provides an industry first - end-to-end sucker rod control for the prevention of sucker rod buckling. This alleviates pre-mature sucker rod fatigue, extending rod life, up-time, and providing unmatched reliability in the sucker rod string.

Black Mamba Rod Lift is committed to operating the business ethically and morally for the betterment of all. We stand by everything we do.

A Smart Approach to Rod Lift's Habitual Challenges

For over 70 years, sucker rod guides have been engineered to address one problem: rod-on-tubing wear. Sucker rod buckling and bending fatigue during compressive moments of the pumping stroke used to be avoided with wide-guide spacing (double-up 8 per), creating long free gaps between sucker rod guides. This approach is counter-intuitive, as it allows the sucker rod to continuously make contact with the production tubing.

In difficult wells, some operators chose to use NO sucker rod guides, because of the increased chance of rod parts. The sucker rod is not controlled in compression with legacy sucker rod guides. Instead, more areas of bending moments are introduced with the additional sucker rod guides, increasing the likelihood of pre-mature sucker rod failure.

For compression areas of the rod string, It is critical to reinforce and centralize the sucker rod with enough frequency to increase the Critical Buckling Load beyond that of what is possible (the weight of the rod string above the compression area).

Engineered to address bending moments created by traditional 4-fin rod guides during compressive moments or rod-flex, the Black Mamba Helical Stabilizer reinforces the sucker rod like no other product in history.

By providing constant centralization over an extended length AND with the ability to have sucker rod movement opposite of the fin on the sucker rod stabilizer, The Black Mamba is the answer to frequent problems typically unaddressed in rod string dynamics.

Slipped guides, cracked guides, and rod parts at or in the guide are a thing of the past.

New Ideas for a Mature Industry

"That's the way it is" doesn't work for us. Times are changing. Sucker rod guide engineering and product evolution has been extremely limited across the last 100 years. Unconventional, deviated, multi-pad modern well-bores are more complicated than ever to produce. The sucker rod needs the ability to be pushed on, in some instances, without deflection or axial displacement.

Our team of seasoned professionals bring countless years of operations, logistics, R&D, product design, manufacturing, and business development together collectively creating and providing impeccably engineered rod lift related products for industry. From well-service challenges and care-and-handling precautions, to providing daily improvement for rod-lift operations, Black Mamba Rod Lift continues to innovate and cater to the needs of operators.
