  • What’s new in artificial lift

    James F. LeA and Herald W. Winkler

    In Part I published in the March 2010 issue, we covered recent developments in gas well dewatering, coiled tubing conveyance, hydraulic pumps and surface units. Part II presents advances in ESPs, PCPs, beam or rod pump systems and gaslift technology. First mentioned among these developments is the first installation of a subsea horizontal ESP boosting system that will take place by mid-2010 to support production in ultra-deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico. At the other end of the North American continent, new high-temperature PCP and ESP systems have been developed for Canada’s oil sands SAGD and CSS applications.
