ProductionWave Production Solution

Improve economics with fewer HSE risks than rod lift technology

Rod lift systems may be a little too conventional for unconventional oil wells. The Baker Hughes ProductionWave™ production solution, featuring FLEXPump™ technology, is a more unconventional choice – and it delivers better economics, with fewer HSE risks, than rod lift systems.

Breakthrough ESP Systems and Associated Technologies

At the heart of the ProductionWave solution are the Centrilift FLEXPump series pumps from Baker Hughes—ESPs that can produce from 50 to 4000 barrels of fluid per day—integrated with best-in-class capabilities for gas and abrasives handling, and unmatched monitoring and automation services.

Experienced People…from Innovation to the Field

Seasoned Baker Hughes engineers will work with you to determine the specific pumping requirements of your well and to design the optimal system that meets your economic drivers. Real-time optimization experts extend the effectiveness of the ESP system over the life of the field by ensuring optimal system performance that is in line with your production expectations. And an experienced field team makes sure that you deploy the most reliable production system.

Commercial Models that Meet Your Business Requirements

Economic requirements vary, so the best solution offers a choice of commercial models that can range from renting equipment, to sell/trade, to lease-to-own, to expanded warranties, to well testing. Baker Hughes can work with you to set up those models and be sure they deliver on your economic expectations.

And, if your wells are prone to scale, organic deposition, or corrosion, we can even pretreat the fracturing fluid to proactively address these challenges and provide long-term flow assurance.



Gas Mitigation Solution for Unconventional Oil Wells

Baker Hughes minimizes the impact of gas on ESP systems in unconventional oil wells. The latest gas-mitigation technology is now available as part of the ProductionWave™ solution.


CENesis Curve Tight-Radius System

CENesis Curve™ tight-radius production system is designed to pass through a 15° per 100 ft bend section in deviated and horizontal wells to get closer to the producing zone.


Centrilift FLEXPumpER Extended Range Pump

Centrilift FLEXPumpER™ extended range pump for unconventional oil wells offers a flow range from 2,900 to 50 barrels per day—the industry’s widest operating range for a single pump.

Artificial Lift

Our ESPs and PCPs are the best performing and most reliable artificial lift solutions for a wide range of oilfield and industrial applications.
