First rigless ESP system installed in the region

Artificial_Lift_CompanyArtificial Lift Company, in collaboration with the Shoaibi Group, has successfully installed the first rigless electrical submersible pump (ESP) system in the region with Saudi Aramco.

The installation was performed in one of Saudi Aramco's fields and comprised of a 134HP Rigless ESP system with a 6000 barrel-per-day pump. The system includes the Artificial Lift Company proprietary Permanent Magnet Motors and Wet Connect system.

The unit was installed at a depth of 6,119 feet and included the installation of a downhole ESP gauge, packer, and subsurface safety valve assemblies. Saudi Aramco has provided a platform for further installations throughout the Middle East with several operators already showing a desire to use this technology.

"Technology like the ALC Advantage System (Rigless ESP Solution) and the ALC Accelerator System (Permanent Magnet Motors for tubing conveyed deployment), combined with quality and service excellence will profoundly transform how we produce ESP wells. The opportunity to partner with Saudi Aramco on this project, with continued support from Shoaibi Group, only furthers the impact that Artificial Lift Company is having in this important arena, " stated CEO of Artificial Lift Company, Alex Kosmala.

Artificial Lift Company's Rigless ESP technology provides an opportunity for clients to retrieve the ESP string without a rig, realising significant benefits through cost savings on rig utilization and electricity expenditures, decreased downtime, and less oil deferment.

"This milestone installation validates Shoaibi Group's ability to actively identify and invest in industry changing technologies that benefit energy providers across the MENA region. We look forward to continue supporting and providing ALC with all the necessary resources that will enable them to implement further successful installations across the Middle East," stated Shoaibi Group Director and appointed ALC Board member, Mark Jenkins.
