There are different methods to be used for artificial lifting systems, so why electric submersible pump (ESP) specifically for your operations? Is there something this method offers that others do not? All artificial lift systems have their place and their benefits, but the ESP system provides many benefits that allow for increased well productivity in a wide range of flowrates and lift. The following is an explanation of what some of these benefits are and why that matters.
What are the Benefits of an ESP Artificial Lift System Generally?
Apart from obtaining increased well productivity in a wide range of applications, you should expect to get a good performance from your ESP artificial lift system. The benefits are relative when it comes to artificial lift systems, but benefits associated with ESP are manifold. Here is a breakdown of what those benefits are and what they mean.
Industry Well Known Operation
An ESP is a multistage centrifugal pump driven by a submersible electric motor. ESPs were introduced about a century ago and through these years the Industry developed well known operating practices and enhancements to support its installation in multiple environments, from mild West Texas wells to deep water offshore or even to SAGD – Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage. During this century since the first ESP was installed in a well, good part of the effort and Industry dedication was directed at sustaining the technology while expanding its envelope of application.
What this means for you: an ESP system can be considered for any operation globally, its installation, operation and maintenance can be locally accessible for most cases.
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. These Centers provide maintenance and repairs as well as ESP testing and qualification of a system prior to its installation / reinstallation in a particular 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 ranges in flowrate, sizes and lift are very ample. Its design is easily adapted to the particular well characteristic and application, regardless of what you are pumping: heavy oil or solids, vertical or deviated wells or holes that are less straight and 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. That translates into more productivity.
The ESP artificial lift system is a high-volume pump. Its range is wide: from low volumes 750 B/D to extremely high volumes.
What this means for you: High performance means more productivity and more productivity means a better bottom line.
For the high-volume applications, the lifting cost if generally quite low. That paired with available maintenance and ease of operation make the ESP artificial lift system very cost-effective.
What this means for you: Cost-effective production means money saved, which means savings can be allotted to other necessary tasks or investments.
Aesthetically speaking, ESP systems provide great benefits. They are quiet. They are safe. 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 be complaining about the operations when they can’t see or hear it.
Applicable in Different Environments
Whether your oil wells are offshore or onshore in a rural or urban area, the ESP artificial lift system can adapt and perform well. They also perform well in harsh environments.
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.
