There are different methods for artificial lifting systems, so why use an electric submersible pump (ESP) for your operations? All artificial lift systems have their place and their benefits, but the ESP artificial lift system provides many benefits that allow for increased well productivity in a wide range of flow rates and lifts.
What Are the Benefits of an ESP Artificial Lift System?
Apart from obtaining increased well productivity in a wide range of applications, you can expect benefits for your system, including:
An ESP is a multistage centrifugal pump driven by a submersible electric motor. ESPs were introduced about a century ago and through the years the industry developed well known operating practices to support its installation in multiple environments from mild West Texas wells to deep water offshore wells to steam assisted gravity drainage.
What this means for you: an ESP system can be considered for any oil and gas operation globally.
Globally Accessible Maintenance
ESP suppliers have developed a global footprint of service centers and support to ensure accessible maintenance at the place or close to the place of operation. It’s easy to access maintenance, repairs, ESP testing and qualification of a system prior to installation or reinstallation in a well.
What this means for you: globally accessible maintenance provides a cost-effective solution to rapidly respond to equipment needs at a lower inventory cost.
ESP systems range in flow rate, sizes and lifts. Their design is easily adapted to your well characteristics and application, regardless of what you are pumping: heavy oil or solids in vertical or deviated wells or holes that are more demanding.
What this means for you: Adaptability means flexibility. An ESP system can adapt to the conditions of the well even when these conditions change unexpectedly, which translates into more productivity.
The ESP artificial lift system is a high-volume pump. Its range is wide: from low volumes of 750 B/D to extremely high volumes.
What this means for you: High performance means more productivity and a better bottom line.
For the high-volume applications, the lifting cost is generally quite low. That, paired with available maintenance and ease of operation, makes the ESP artificial lift system very cost-effective.
What this means for you: You can reallocate cost savings to other necessary tasks or investments.
ESP systems are safe. They are quiet. They are unobtrusive with little equipment visible on the surface.
What this means for you: No complaints. Whether the operation is in a rural area, near an urban area or offshore, no one will complain about operations when they can’t see or hear them.
Applicable in Different Environments
Whether your oil wells are offshore or onshore in a rural or urban area, the ESP artificial lift system adapts and performs well.
What this means for you: An artificial lift system that can work in mild as well as in harsh environments is a system that allows for more well uptime and productivity.
