deploys steam assisted gravity drainage
(SAGD) and electric submersible pump
(ESP) technology to produce their field.
Due to sand production in some of the
wellbores, the ESP pumps’ life expectancy
is reduced. In this case, the ESP pump,
installed in a high-temperature, shallow
and total vertical depth (TVD) well, ceased
to function after pulling sand through.
Previous attempted bailer trips to recover
these sands in similar wellbores in the
area proved to be unsuccessful and did
not remove adequate sand volumes in an
efficient way. VACS-cleans-SAGD-wellbore-saves-ESP-with-zero-NPT-cs.pdf
