Schlumberger has been dedicated to understanding and implementing reliable, low-risk subsea lift systems since the earliest industry efforts. We have contributed to the development of the industry’s first subsea ESP field in the Eastern South of China, which is considered the world’s largest subsea ESP operation, and also played a major role in the completion of the industry’s first subsea ESP installation in the ultradeep water offshore Brazil. These industry-first installations are among the more than 150 Schlumberger subsea lift installations worldwide today.
More than 20 ESPs successfully restarted after typhoon shut down production in South China Sea, saving the client more than USD 500 million in workover costs.

Our subsea lift technologies offer a reliable range of designs that address the demanding needs of subsea production. These technologies include XLift high-pressure and Barrier series gas lift systems, high-horsepower caisson ESPs, and ultra-efficient backup system options. Operators’ customized assemblies must pass a system integration test before being installed in a subsea well. The quality control and product testing ensure that all components are functioning properly before being installed, minimizing potential assembly-related downtime.
Our custom-designed systems encapsulate and protect ESPs in a sealed and isolated environment. Produce multiple zones in independent or dual ESP systems and improve the performance of your high-horsepower applications.
Featuring multiple models specially designed for deepwater and subsea gas lift wells, our high-pressure gas lift systems operate with the proper injection pressures and points to enhance well performance.
Enhance lift system performance and eliminate potential problems through reservoir monitoring, round-the-clock surveillance and diagnostics, and advanced lifting services.
Variable speed drives enable pumps to perform across a wider operating range than typical by varying their speed.
