Advanced Electric Submersible Pump: Design and Analysis

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, and high temperature wells. 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, shrouded motors, production through the annular, high temperature and recirculation. This course will provide in depth knowledge of the design and installation of the ESP used in aggressive environment application, delegates can learn how to optimization and troubleshooting in ESP Installation.
