Lex – Solution to ensure the rigless deployment and save up to 40% OPEX

Solution to ensure the rigless deployment and save up to 40% OPEX

Each replacement of failed submersible equipment or the installation of a new ESP incurs significant OPEX. Our innovative solution allows the fast installation of submersible equipment with no damage to the bottom-hole area. The unique 29.5 ft (9 m) long Ultra-High-Speed ESP (UHS ESP™) by Lex is cable deployed into 3.5" (89 mm) tubing thru the wellhead lubricator.

Solution to ensure the rigless deployment and save up to 40% OPEX

For producing companies, replacing faulty units or installing new ESPs incur heavy financial costs. Whether that’s payment to workover crews, reallocation of technical and human resources from other tasks or profit loss due to downtime. Additionally, there is a risk of environmental damage caused by trip-shows. This is why onshore or offshore pulling-and-running operations are naturally unsafe and need highly qualified staff and special support equipment to run safely and smoothly.

Standard submersible equipment requires a special workover service rig and killing fluid that may adversely impact the reservoir properties in the bottom-hole area of the well.

We have developed an advanced solution that is especially relevant for offshore, geographically remote, and hard-to-reach oil fields. We offer a compact 29.5 ft (9 m) long Ultra-High-Speed (up to 12,000 rpm) electric submersible pump. The unit is cable-deployed in a casing and can be mounted through 3.5″ (89 mm) tubing. The installation is carried out through the wellhead lubricator.

UHS ESPTM installation does not require a workover rig or shutdown. It also avoids the need to kill wells with a heavy fluid that damages the bottom-hole area, reduces productivity, or slows the well’s recovery.

Our solution helps reduce OPEX by up to 40%, prevents long-term negative impacts to the bottom-hole area of the well, and increases employees’ safety.

Ultra-High-Speed ESP (UHS ESP™)

We’ve developed our innovative PMM-driven Ultra-High-Speed ESP (UHS ESP™) with an operating speed between 1,000 and 12,000 rpm. UHS ESP™ provides effective operation in harsh well conditions, with limited power supply, and below perforation range.

Thru-Tubing ESP (TT ESP™)

Thru-Tubing ESP (TT ESP™)

We have developed the upgraded Lex Thru-Tubing ESP  (TT ESP™) that is cable deployed through the 3.5" (89 mm) tubing. The system can quickly resume production in idle or non-operating wells caused by planned maintenance or pump failure. Compact TT ESP™ is riglessly cable-deployed into the tubing through the wellhead. The technology successfully replaces an expensive workover and prevents clogging of the bottom-hole area without killing fluid. The high nameplate operating speed (12,000 rpm) of the ESP and PMM ensure a compact design and much easier installation.
