Electric Submersible Pumps - Application Engineering - 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 a solid grasp of ESP and its applications. It covers detailed description of the components of ESPs making emphasis on the specific functions of each one. The standard application is described as well as some non-standard applications. The use of the affinity laws for centrifugal pumps is illustrated with practical examples. Downhole gas separators and gas handlers are discussed in a dedicated section of the course. This RILS course considers 4 hrs/day instruction.
