Increase production in heavy oil, gassy wells, and other extreme heat environments.
Optimizing production economics is always a concern for oil and gas companies, but with robust demand and high activity levels creating upward pricing pressures on all types of equipment and field services, production optimization has become a top priority to maximize revenue streams in both conventional and unconventional fields.
The new Schlumberger REDA HotlineSA3 high-temperature electric submersible pump (ESP) for steam-assisted recovery operations and geothermal applications is already enhancing production for heavy oil operators in Western Canada and the Middle East. This third-generation ESP system is helping operators bring production on faster while also reducing downtime and associated workover costs. The pump is designed to withstand bottom-hole temperatures to 250 degrees C (482 degrees F) to accommodate demand for higher-temperature equipment to maximize recovery, especially in western Canadian tar sands.
