Electric Submersible Pumps - Advanced

The Electric Submersible Pump System (ESP) is considered an effective and economical means of lifting large volume of fluids from great depths under a variety of well conditions. Over the years, the ESP companies, in conjunction with the major oil companies, have gained considerable experience in producing high viscosity fluids, gassy wells, high temperature wells, etc. With this experience and improved technology, wells that were once considered non-feasible for submersibles are now being pumped economically. This course is designed to provide recommendations for designing ESP systems for special applications including gassy wells, production of fluids with solids, viscous oil, dual completions, Ytool applications, shrouded motors, production through the annular, high temperature and recirculation. Pump curves (Head vs. Flowrate) for several pump speeds are generated in class as an exercise.

Course Objectives: Provide in depth knowledge of the advantages and limitations of the Electric Submersible Pumps used in aggressive environment applications. Participants will learn well optimization and troubleshooting.

Oil Well Laboratory

"The Oil Well Laboratory, used in this course, is a physical simulator designed to enhance the learning process. The apparatus is an "oil" well physical simulator of a small scale. It uses water and air in place of oil and gas, allowing to perform and demonstrate most of the normal operations in a real well."

  • Location


    Bandung is the capital of West Java province in Indonesia. Located 768 m (2,520 ft) above sea level, Bandung has relatively year-around cooler temperature than most other Indonesian cities

    Bandung Sky Line

    Bandung is renowned for its large stock of Dutch colonial architecture; most notably the tropical Art Deco architectural style. The modern and native architectural blending was followed by several Dutch architects that have shaped the city landmarks. In the 1930s, Bandung was known also as the city of architecture laboratory because of many Dutch architects made some experiments with new architectural designs.

    Bandung has served for popular weekend-break destination for people living in Jakarta for many reasons. The cooler climate of highland plantation area, the varieties of food, the cheaper fashion shops located in factory outlets and distros, golf courses, and the friendliness of local people have become the main attraction of the city.

    Bandung Husein Sastranegara International Airport serves direct flights to Batam, Surabaya, Yogyakarta, Denpasar, Palembang and Padang and also international services from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore Changi Airport. The airport is located nearby the Dirgantara aerospace complex and Dirgantara Fairground.
