Variable Speed Drives (VSDs)

Control of submersible and surface pumping systems

Schlumberger variable speed drives (VSDs) are tailored to the unique requirements of electrical submersible pumps (ESPs) and surface pumping systems (HPSs). They are designed to provide reliable power, protection, and control of ESP and HPS installations while reducing overall operating costs, increasing total efficiency, and maintaining system integrity. Their use minimizes costly downtime, reduces potential energy fines and levies, reduces workovers and replacements, prolongs pump run life, and ultimately increases production.

Optimize production and minimize downtime

By combining the right VSD with expert electrical and pump system design, field operation, and monitoring throughout the life cycle of the well, our services can enhance an ESP or surface pumping system's performance, help you increase production, and make your operations more profitable overall.
