Electric Submersible Pump System - EPSs


product overview

The electrical submersible pump, typically called an ESP, is an efficient and reliable artificial-lift method for lifting moderate to high volumes of fluids from wellbores. Variable-speed controllers can extend range significantly, both on the high and low side. The ESP’s main components include:

  • Multistaged centrifugal pump
  • Three-phase induction motor
  • Seal-chamber section
  • Power cable
  • Surface controls



  • Adaptable to highly deviated wells; up to horizontal, but must be set in straight section.
  • Adaptable to required subsurface wellheads 6 ft apart for maximum surface-location density.
  • Permit use of minimum space for subsurface controls and associated production facilities.
  • Quiet, safe, and sanitary for acceptable operations in an offshore and environmentally conscious area.
  • Generally considered a high-volume pump.
  • Provides for increased volumes and water cuts brought on by pressure maintenance and secondary recovery operations.
  • Permits placing wells on production even while drilling and working over wells in immediate vicinity.
  • Applicable in a range of harsh environments.
