In the short history of coil tubing deployed electrical submersible pumping (ESP) systems, 7 inch production casing has been the norm. However, recent applications with low flow volumes and high wax content require a smaller diameter production casing to maintain flow velocities capable of flushing the wax. The challenges of re-designing a complex coil tubing deployed inverted ESP were significant.
