Kulpsville, PA – February 1, 2018 – Greene, Tweed & Co. developed a customized connector solution that greatly improved the performance of AccessESP’s rigless electrical submersible pump (ESP) system.
AccessESP, a Houston-based provider of ESP conveyance solutions for the global oil industry, developed a through tubing retrieval technology that provides quick and easy ESP installation and retrieval using slickline, wireline, or coiled tubing. Greene, Tweed combined its proprietary materials portfolio with engineering and design expertise to meet AccessESP’s demanding reliability management initiative and electrical requirements.
Greene, Tweed’s Seal-Connect® solution combined its high-performance materials, including Arlon® 1000, Arlon® 3000 XT, and Chemraz® 629. Arlon® 3000 XT provides:
