Paper presented at the SPE Gulf Coast Section - Electric Submersible Pumps Symposium, October 2–6, 2023
Paper Number: SPE-214737-MS
... Abstract Electric Submersible Pumping (ESP) is a common artificial lift method when technically viable for high flow rate application. ESP reliability, on the other hand, is sensitive to multiple factors during its life cycle from contracting all the way to failure analysis. This paper...

Paper Number: SPE-214734-MS
... Regarding tapered pumps, the current guidance is to enter each of the pump body with its corresponding number stages as part of the ESP description. The previous practice was to sum up the number of stages of pumps with the same models for modeling simplification. Therefore, only two or three...

... A were mainly caused by erosion and corrosion resulting from sand and solids production. To overcome these challenges and minimize pump failures and delays, a comprehensive conversion plan was proposed. The plan involved replacing the existing Beam Pumps with Electrical Submersible Pumps (ESPs) based...
