What's New in Artificial Lift

Fourteen downhole and surface system developments from 11 companies for ESP and other artificial lift operations

SmithLift has developed and field proven the Hydraulic Diaphragm Electric Submersible Pump (HDESP). The pump is powered by a three phase, triple insulated electric motor and uses two hose-like "diaphragms" to positively displace formation fluid into the production tubing. The pump was designed for low-production-rate (<200 bfpd) oil, gas and coal bed methane applications with depths less than 2,500 ft.
