When a third-party ESP located offshore Congo needed to be replaced, the ZEiTECS Shuttle* rigless ESP replacement system installed in the well provided a quick and cost-effective solution.
The ESP was pulled out in about 2 hours using a slickline with a diameter of 0.16 in [4.06 mm]. After the damaged components had been replaced, the ESP was run back to depth in 25 minutes, again on slickline. The estimated total time for this rigless workover, including rig-up and rig-down, was just 4 days. This was the fourth mating-demating operation in the well with the ZEiTECS Shuttle system in 4 years, demonstrating its long-term reliability.
