ARTIFICIAL LIFT TECHBOOK: KEY PLAYERS 6 | May 2016 | B aseball is a simple game. Like the skipper said in Bull Durham, "You throw the ball, you hit the ball, and you catch the ball." While it is no game, making a living in the oil business is similar to baseball. You drill the well, you produce the well, and you send the oil down the sales line. Another is that both require a team dedicated to safety and hard work necessary to attain success. The follow- ing section is a roster of the leading players in the artifcial lift market and an overview of their tech- nologies and services ready to help oil and gas pro- duction teams knock low fow out of the park. AccessESP Access ESP is a provider of rigless electric sub- mersible pump (ESP) conveyance products. The company combined two technologies—a perma- nent magnetic motor and a side-pocket wet con- nect system—into one tubing-mounted permanent completion and a slickline retrieval assembly. Running and retrieving an ESP is now similar to running a production logging tool or replacing a gas-lift valve. The company's technology makes the retrieval and replacement of an ESP system through tubing, using conventional slickline processes and equipment. No rig is required. AccessESP's equipment can be installed as a con- tingency for future ESP installations. The fullbore permanent completion can be deployed at the time of the initial completion. At any time in the future, an ESP can be installed using simple slickline oper- ations. Typically the replacement can be completed in less than 72 hours. The technology provides fullbore access below the ESP system for easy reme- diation of the lower completion and reservoir. Baker Hughes Inc.
