Artificial Lift deploys rigless ESP system for Total E&P Congo

HOUSTON -- Artificial Lift Company has successfully deployed its Advantage rigless ESP system for Total E&P Congo in the Republic of Congo.

The rigless system was successfully installed, conveyed and retrieved on a System Integration Test water well in the Djeno field.

Total will now include the Advantage system in future wells offshore. One hundred percent of Total E&P Congo’s production comes from offshore and the majority requires secondary lift.
 
A downside of using an ESP is the need for frequent intervention and the limitation of having workover vessels available offshore. The Advantage slickline-conveyed, rigless ESP system reduces intervention time, intervention cost and production downtime because of the lack of rig availability and mobilization.
 
Thus, the system reduces OPEX; increases well up-time; reduces production deferment; and can be a step-change in the way new fields are developed.

The Advantage system consists of a 134HP ALC Permanent Magnet Motor along with ALC’s wet connect system.  Unique to this solution, Total utilized its standard variable speed drive and 338 series ESP pumps.
