KUDU Insert System, Install or Replace PCPs | Schlumberger

KUDU Insert System

PCP removal and replacement without pulling the tubing

Tubing sizes: 2 7/8-in [73.025-mm], 3½-in [88.9-mm], and 4½-in [114.3-mm]
Compatibility with standard API and nonstandard pump seating nipples (PSNs)

Save time on installing and replacing PCPs

A conventional PCP stator is connected to the tubing string in the well. Consequently, all the tubing joints must be pulled out to install, replace, or remove the stator.

The innovative KUDU insert system enables PCP installation in (or removal from) the production tubing using the sucker rodstring, eliminating the need to pull out the tubing and run it back in. This minimizes operating costs and NPT.

Type A Configuration
This robust system can withstand higher torque, enabling use of larger pumps and making it suitable for tougher downhole conditions, such as high solids content and viscous fluids.
Type B Configuration
The insert system seals against the PSN and features a bidirectional-torque anchor that prevents rotation in any direction, protecting the seals and allowing the pump to operate.
Type C Configuration
The insert system seats on a non-API PSN. It also features a bidirectional-torque anchor that prevents rotation in any direction.
