REDA ESP System Cables

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


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. Power cables for REDA ESP 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.

Simplify installation with reliable MLEs

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

  • MaxLok ESP quick-plug MLE—Eliminates the taping process of the pothead to the motor at the wellsite, considerably reducing the assembly time.
  • REDA Hotline ESP motor MLE—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 MLE—Uses PEEK-insulated copper conductor leads that plug in directly to the motor through individual connectors to minimize mechanical impact.
