FLEXPump series pumps reduced ESP system energy use by 20%
An operator was looking for a more energyefficient alternative for oil production in the Khanty-Mansi region of Russia. Well economics made power consumption levels a high priority for this operator. Previously, the company had relied heavily on conventional electrical submersible pumping (ESP) equipment from Russian competitors.
The operator approached Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE), and negotiated a well test program to allow BHGE to showcase the new FLEXPump™ series pump technology for ESP systems. The operator wanted decreased energy consumption by the ESP system with increased run life. Tests were conducted in five wells with comparable equipment to measure performance.
