Borets Has Once Again Proved the Energy Efficiency of its Pumping Systems
22 Jule, 2014
In July 2014 LUKOIL Oil Company completed the field trial of the Energy Efficient ESP Systems driven by Borets permanent magnet motor (PMM).
The objective of the field test was to evaluate the actual electrical power consumption of the Energy Efficient ESP Systems driven by Borets PMM and BORETS-VD series VSD compared to the conventional ESP systems driven by induction motor in the same well environment.
The pumping systems were tested in four low-production-rate wells in different oil fields. Before Energy Efficient ESP Systems installation, the conventional ESP well parameters were monitored.
There were no any significant changes of the well parameters (fluid flow rate, water cut, dynamic fluid level and etc.) after the conventional ESP systems replacement with the Energy Efficient ESP Systems, but the daily average electrical power consumption decreased by 27 - 32%.
There were no any failures during field tests. Trial operation objectives were completely met.
The operator’s specialists accepted the field tests of the Borets PMM driven Energy Efficient ESP Systems as successful and recommended them for wide use for cost optimization purposes.
