ESP Ltd has successfully installed a Baker Hughes ESP pump in Libya’s Bouri field, the first successful ESP pump installation in the field after ten years.
The complex installation was successfully commissioned using the highest specification equipment to achieve the longest run life for the ESP string. The ESP was connected to a surface medium voltage drive to better control the ESP and fine-tune the production rate. The job was conducted by six, highly trained field specialists that ESP Ltd flew in to work on the installation.
The installation was the first of three that ESP Ltd will conduct in the Bouri field as part of a tender won by the company in March 2019. Following the first successful commission, the ESP team is now working on a second well in the field which is due to be completed in the coming weeks.
The wells worked on by ESP Ltd are spread across two platforms in the Bouri field, located in the Mediterranean Sea around 80kms north of the Libyan coast. The field is operated by ENI, in partnership with the National Oil Company with Mellitah Oil and Gas operating the field.
