As a result of the increasing emphasis on reducing operating costs and minimizing deferred production, a new system was designed for perforating wells lifted with electrical submersible pumps (ESPs). The purpose of this project was to develop and apply a new concept for well completion involving ESP systems, tubing-conveyed perforating (TCP), drillstem testing (DST), and chemical treatment of the formation by using standard equipment and techniques. The concept was developed after identifying the opportunity to optimize operations in wells where the above equipment and operations are required.

This paper summarizes practical experience gained during the development and deployment of this system.
