Message from the Program Chairperson

Dear Colleagues,

Electric submersible pumps (ESPs) have been utilized in oil production since the early 1900s and remain an integral piece of production equipment to this day. ESP applications range from benign conventional high water cut wells, to some of the most challenging applications in the world.  As the frontiers of ESP utilization continue to challenge the limitations of technologies, it is important industry share knowledge, new technology, challenges and successes in order to drive innovation in the utilization of this important form of artificial lift.

The SPE Electric Submersible Pumps Symposium brings together ESP technical experts from around the world, both from operators and manufacturers, to share innovative information and ‘lessons learned’ solutions pertaining to ESP technology, production, and operations. The ESP Symposium brings together a strong technical program, a world-class exhibition showing and demonstrating the newest offerings from manufactures with live technical demonstrations, and multiple continuing education opportunities dedicated to ESP related equipment and applications.

This unique event is only held once every two years and is one of the very few industry events that is solely dedicated to ESPs.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn, network and see firsthand the latest in ESP technology and industry knowledge. 

The program committee members look forward to seeing you in The Woodlands, Texas in October 2021.
