Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP) Up-Time


Many oil producing wells require an artificial lift to increase the flow of fluids as the reservoir pressure is not high enough. Typically, electrical submersible pumps (ESPs) are used, but these pumps are not always operating efficiently and can cause costly downtime for operators. Sudden loss of flow can damage the pump, causing lost productivity and expensive pump repair costs. In addition, the lack of sophisticated trip logic can lead to premature trips and loss of production. This problem spans hundreds of pads and thousands of wells.
