After some long period of production, the well may not be able to lift the hydrocarbons by its natural energy. Therefore artificial lift system is applied. Sucker rod pump as one of the artificial system commonly used, is a pumping system using a surface power source to drive a downhole pump assembly. Its components are: beam, crank assembly, sucker-rod string, plunger, and valve assembly to convert the reciprocating motion to vertical fluid movement. This sucker rod is very common and widely used on onshore platforms where the reservoir pressure is not adequate to lift the Hydrocarbon by its natural force. Even though sucker rod pump is commonly used, there is still weakness which can be improved through this proposed project. In this study, it is proposed that the stationary ball valve at the bottom of the pump must be developed in a manner that the ball valve will be immediately closed as the downstroke begins and similarly, the travelling valve is opened. It is proposed that energy to close and to open the valve is added by the energy generated by the motor. In this way, the motor will help to pull and push the ball up and down therefore the closing and the opening period will be reduced and also the motor will also help to avoid leakage at the valve. The development will give great benefit in increasing the pumping capacity and also as well as to maximize the profit of production company
