Peak thermodynamic efficiency of an individual SJP device is only around 30%. However, this should not be the basis for selecting or rejecting these devices because they often use energy which was previously being wasted to do useful work. In some cases the application of SJP can bring dead or shut-in wells back to life. Furthermore, because of the way in which they operate, SJPs have significantly lower maintenance and running costs.
