Electric Submersible Pumps - Advanced (RILS)

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.
