Greene, Tweed and AccessESP Collaboration Improves Reliability of High Voltage ESPs
Kulpsville, PA (February 1, 2018) – Greene, Tweed & Co. developed a customized connector solution that greatly improved the performance of AccessESP’s rigless electrical submersible pump (ESP) system.
AccessESP, a Houston-based provider of ESP conveyance solutions for the global oil industry, developed a through tubing retrieval technology that provides quick and easy ESP installation and retrieval using slickline, wireline, or coiled tubing.
Greene, Tweed combined its proprietary materials portfolio with engineering and design expertise to meet AccessESP’s demanding reliability management initiative and electrical requirements.
Greene, Tweed’s Seal-Connect® solution combined its high-performance materials, including Arlon® 1000, Arlon® 3000 XT, and Chemraz® 629. Arlon® 3000 XT provides:
• Improved volume resistivity 30 times that of PEK at 400°F (204°C)
• Dielectric strength measured at 730 V/mil in ASTM D149 testing
• Improved mechanical properties when compared to PEEK and PEK at 500°F (260°C)
“We continue to be pleased with Greene, Tweed’s proposed Seal-Connect® solution for the connector assembly,” said David Malone, AccessESP CEO. “This connector provided us with the required performance in order to guarantee a long and safe life with extremely high levels of reliability.”
“Greene, Tweed and AccessESP’s collaboration addressed one of the biggest challenges facing our customers – optimizing system reliability to maximize uptime,” said Henry Stueber, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Greene,Tweed. “A thorough understanding of the application allowed us to design an innovative solution that enabled AccessESP’s reliability goals.”
