Optimizing Analytics Software to Manage ESP Assets

Because preventative maintenance isn’t an option on ESPs, it is crucial that operators use analytics software to predict performance issues and prescriptively manage their assets.

Because preventative maintenance is not an option on ESPs, it is crucial that operators use analytics software to predict performance issues and prescriptively manage their assets. Once an ESP does fail, the process for pulling and replacing it is very expensive.

Preventative asset management means understanding how a pump is operating versus how it should be and taking steps to get it back to optimal health. Although pump failure is inevitable, taking steps to extend its lifetime, minimize time and associated costs between workovers and optimize pumping time can save engineers time and resources.
