This paper explains how the real-time surveillance helps improving runlife, uptime and reducing production deferment of Electrical Submergible Pumps (ESP) of SG-300 offshore platform wells of Gulf of Suez Petroleum Company (GUPCO). The implementation of a robust suerveillance workflow together with real-time surveillance and alarm notification system has shown a good contribution to increase ESP runlife via preventing the ESP from being misoperated outside its recommended operating conditions and experiencing excessive stress, reduce start/stops and downtime, reduce production deferment, and improve downhole chemical injection program for scale inhibition. This is being done via classification of alarms and on-fly diagnostics of main root causes that helps to promptly identify remedial actions and/or recommendations.
