AccessESP Announces Fourth Generation Retrievable System


HOUSTON, October 17, 2014—AccessESP has unveiled its fourth generation rigless ESP conveyance system, the Access375. This represents a paradigm shift in rigless ESP conveyance with many unique features:

  • Access375 includes the company’s fourth-generation, state-of-the-art, single-section, permanent magnet motor, one-fifth the length and weight of a conventional induction motor. The one-piece design eliminates the need for tandem and triple motors, significantly reducing system complexity, leading to higher reliability and simpler installation.
  • The robust and rugged mechanical design is based on the adoption of components and techniques from the MWD/LWD and completions industries that have a proven record of performance across the last 20 years.
  • The system encompasses a “no compromise” product design and qualification philosophy. Access375 is built and qualified for challenging offshore and remote locations, using technologies and components focuses on simplicity and reliability.

This new technology builds on previous generations of AccessESP rigless ESP conveyance systems. Benefits include fullbore reservoir access; compatibility with equipment (including variable speed drives and pumps) from all major ESP providers; and live well ESP installation and removal using conventional slickline, coiled tubing, or a wireline tractor. The result is maximized production uptime with reduced costs, time, and complexity for ESP intervention.

“We are very excited about the introduction of Access375,” said David Malone, AccessESP President and CEO. “This game-changing technology makes ESP systems economical by replacing workover rigs with light, portable slickline equipment for ESP intervention.”
