Baker Hughes ESPs Decreased OPEX USD 750,000 per Well in EgyptFirst corrosion-resistant ESP installation increased run life by 700%
A ﬁeld in Egypt’s Western Desert produced 13,500 BOPD but required water injection to prime the reservoir. The only water available had relatively high levels of high levels of CO2, oxygen, and H2S and a temperature of more than 257ºF (125ºC).
To combat the corrosive water conditions, Baker Hughes developed a corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) system housing, which provides much greater protection for system components in hot, corrosive environments. The alloy contains high levels of corrosion-resistant elements and has a crystal structure that results in a material with excellent resistance to both corrosion and oxidation. The CRA housing encloses a Baker Hughes ESP system comprised of a 675 Series HC 12,500 BPD pump, 562 Series KMH-X, 348 hp motor, 513 Series GST3-X seal, and #1 AWG corrosion-resistant cable.
