    Hybrid Electric Submersible Pumps Advanced (Software and Simulator)

    The Electric Submersible Pump System (ESP) is 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, improved technology and the help of dedicated software, 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 using software (DesignRite and Pipesim) for standard and 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. 
    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 using software DesignRite and Pipesim). The Oil Well Lab shown in the picture is used to perform exercises throught all the course.
