In Rosneft Oil Company 90% of production is provided by 15 000 ESP wells. That is why monitoring and efficiency increasing of those wells are of current importance. Up to recent time, analysis and optimisation were done regularly on monthly basis, while real time monitoring systems were oriented mainly to keep books of oil production.

In our opinion implementation of real time monitoring and control systems and reducing analysis and optimisation cycle to days may increase production by the means of rate increase and downtime reduction.

Research in this area started in Rosneft in late 2006 in the framework of New Technologies System. Currently there are solutions for data gathering and proceeding, worked out information use in business processes, has practice in production increase and well downtime reduction, started company-wide application of system.

Paper includes cases of well regime analysis done with the described system.

An important question of quantative evaluation of system applicability for certain conditions was examined. This paper may help to take decision on application of this type of systems for other companies.
