Wow .. A vacuum pump is added to a hole to increase the inflow of fluid .

Some wells do flow natural. And some may even come in dry and with some tlc and a vacuum pump will allow the fluid to enter the rat hole and be pumped to the surface by the jack pump and cup pump.

I know this from being in the oil fields for almost 40 years now .

Also if not already done a acid treatment could help produce more fluid .

Make sure you set a packer for acid or a lot will be up in the hole and nod work as good .
