2 - OGE - Oil & Gas

OGE 124 - Electrical Submersible Pumps (ESP) Basic Operations, Design & Optimization (10 Days)



Course Description

A submersible pump is a method of oil and gas artificial lift. It is used in more than 50% from oil wells around the world. It is a type of pump considered to be more superior and useful than a jet pump since it prevents pump cavitation. It has been first used by Russian oil delivery system engineer. 
This course covers ESP basics of design, operation and optimization, ESP components, troubleshooting and ESP surface equipment.

Course Objectives

  • By the end of the course, trainees will be familiar with all ESP types and their uses in addition to ESP wells down hole problems and the best solutions applied in artificial Lift technology.
  • Trainees will be introduced to the newest ESP technology and Down Hole Monitoring tools which are considered as the eyes of the ESP operators.
  • The course will cover VSD Variable speed drives and their application in ESP wells.
