Oilfield services company Schlumberger (SLB) has introduced two groundbreaking artificial lift systems in a move toward reducing emissions and improving production efficiencies. The Reda Agile compact wide-range electric submersible pump (ESP) system and the rodless Reda PowerEdge electric submersible progressing cavity pump (ESPCP) system boast cutting-edge designs that promise to enhance reliability and efficiency.

Equipped with digital services for continuous live surveillance and real-time optimization, these latest innovations from SLB offer improved operational stability, facilitating quicker installation and production while simultaneously reducing power consumption, operating costs and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The broad operational capabilities of these systems emphasize their ability to operate continuously across various production conditions, surpassing existing artificial lift systems available on the market.

The PowerEdge ESPCP system presents a more energy-efficient alternative for low-flow production rates in both mature conventional and unconventional wells. It extends the operating range of traditional PCP systems, demonstrating high resistance to aromatics and capability to withstand varying temperatures, speeds, and intake pressures. Most notably, this system reduces power consumption and related CO2 emissions by up to 55%, offering a substantial environmental benefit while significantly cutting operational costs.

The Agile ESP system offers unparalleled operational flexibility, optimizing efficiency while lowering overall operational costs. Its compact size and lightweight design enable swift installation and deeper placement in the well, extracting maximum potential.

The ESP system boasts the widest operating range in the industry, eliminating the need for frequent ESP changes as production fluctuates.
