Reda ESP pump system cables

High-integrity power cables designed to maximize ESP system run life

Reda ESP cables.

Ensure consistent delivery of electrical power to downhole equipment

Maximize overall electric submersible pump (ESP) system run life with cables that incorporate the most advanced materials, developed through decades of research and continuous testing. 

Simplify installation with reliable MLEs

Improve system performance with motor lead extensions (MLEs) that use polyimide as the primary insulation and polyetheretherketone (PEEK) for extreme high-temperature or specialty applications. The same patented materials used in SLB power cables are used in the MLE designs as secondary insulations and jackets to maximize system reliability.

  • MaxLok™ ESP quick-plug motor lead extension—Eliminates the taping process of the pothead to the motor at the wellsite, considerably reducing the assembly time.
  • Reda Hotline high-temperature ESP system motor lead extension motor lead extension—Features a wide temperature rating of –40 to 550 degF [–40 to 288 degC] and a completely sealed motor plug-in connection. It is ideal for high temperatures and corrosive environments of thermal recovery, such as steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD).
  • Trident™ extreme-conditions motor lead extension—Uses PEEK-insulated copper conductor leads that plug in directly to the motor through individual connectors to minimize mechanical impact.
REDA ESP cables.

Power cables for Reda ESP™ pump systems are designed and manufactured to deliver consistent power to downhole equipment in

  • land and offshore wells with installed ESP systems
  • gas, oil, or condensate producers
  • high-temperature, gassy, and corrosive wells
  • deepwater wells with high-horsepower ESP systems.

While a basic configuration of the main components is suitable for most well conditions, each standard cable can be customized to suit the specific requirements of a given well, including temperature and pressure ratings, corrosive properties, and gas/oil ratios.

Various grades of armor ranging from standard galvanized steel to MONEL® alloys are available for protection against corrosive environments. All these ESP cables feature fully annealed, high-conductivity copper and tin lead–alloy-coated conductors for additional protection against corrosion. They also include best-in-class fluid- and gas-impermeable barriers and corrosion-resistant, high-strength metallic armors.
