New Advances in ESP Technologies

17 – 19 September 2013

Tyumen, Russia | Tyumen Hotel

About this Workshop

Most oil production in Russia today uses electric submersible pumps (ESPs). In recent years, ESPs have facilitated a high level of production optimization. Innovative technologies are used for pump fabrication, performance monitoring, and failure prediction.

As years go by, oil fields are depleted and reserves become harder to recover. With oil companies seeking to globalize, it becomes necessary to devise new equipment that can meet ambitious production goals and objectives. Equipment manufacturers are tasked with incorporating equipment efficiency and cost reduction into their offerings.

The use of non-standard ESP sizes to produce oil from marginal fields causes a reduction in efficiency.  In the absence of unified classifiers and equipment specifications, a great number of pump manufacturers produce a wide range of equipment with various selection requirements. An alliance between equipment manufacturers and customers will enable the former to design and produce equipment for efficient, optimized development of the industry.
