Lex – Solution to efficiently produce oil in wells having fluid temperatures up to 392 °F (200 °C)

Solution to efficiently produce oil in wells having fluid temperatures up to 392 °F (200 °C)

We have developed improved pumping equipment which we’ve adapted to work optimally in high temperatures. This ensures steady operation in high-temperature wells of up to 392 °F (200 °С).

Solution to efficiently produce oil in wells having fluid temperatures up to 392 °F (200 °C)

The operation of wells with fluid temperatures exceeding 302-392 °F (150-200 °С) using standard pumping equipment is impossible. Overheated equipment leads to melting of motor and seal components and eventually total destruction of the pump.

We use high-temperature elastomers and mechanical seals in the hydraulic protection unit of our technology. Lex high-efficiency Universal PM motors have no electrical or magnetic losses and are less vulnerable to heat. In addition, they use a high-temperature-resistant synthetic oil and a special wire compound.

These improvements have provided reliable and stable operation of submersible equipment with a comprehensive delivery range, with internal engine temperatures reaching 482 °F (250 °С) in wells with extreme fluid temperatures up to 392 °F (200 °С).
