After reviewing multiple of running the Electrical Submersible Pumping options, Dragon Oil chose to implement tubing conveyed and rigless ESP's to return the candidate wells to the required production levels. This case study highlights the technological rational, challenges in implementing decided strategy and prognosticates expected results & benefits from running the two types of ESP's as an additional well investments.
