ESP Application Design for Production Engineers

Instructors: Matt Hackworth and Sandy Williams

Disciplines: Production and Operations

Course Description
 

Installing an inappropriate or poorly specified ESP leads to lost production, short runlives, and ultimately higher production costs. With the growth in ESP-produced unconventional wells, appropriate ESP design becomes more challenging due to divergent HP and head requirement at initial production versus the depleted well at end of life. ESP design is typically performed by the ESP vendors (often with less than complete design data), reviewed by the production engineer, and then equipment selected and installed.

Topics:

  • The "Why?" and the "How?" of the design
  • What well, production & facilities information is required to ensure a successful design
  • Function and operation of each ESP component and how it impacts the application design
  • Calculations and data that make up an effective ESP design
  • ESP application design by hand and using software
  • Single operating point and dual operating point designs
  • Gas handling approaches with ESPs – functional limits
  • Reviewing ESP designs – how to read the report
  • ESP equipment specifications
