Baker Hughes ESP Systems Increased Revenue USD 1.7 Million AnnuallyESP systems replaced rod lift and eliminated workovers
A Canadian operator was experiencing consistent rod system failures in a Saskatchewan ﬁeld. Some of the systems required workovers as often as once a month. Baker Hughes installed four low ﬂow/low horsepower production systems. The electrical submersible pumping (ESP) systems were landed in the horizontal leg, successfully passing through all doglegs. Pump depth in all four wells was between 1,200 and 1,300 meters (3,937 and 4,265 ft).
With ESP system technology, 8 workovers (2 per well) per year were eliminated for OPEX savings of USD 200,000 at an average USD 25,000 per workover. With increased production, revenue increased USD 1.7 million annually at USD 70 per barrel.
