The award covers 200 wells in which Repsol requires ESP systems to maximize production. Baker Hughes has supplied ESP systems for Repsol’s Block 16 and Tivacuna wells since 1998. The recent contract was awarded to Baker Hughes based on 12 years of successful new technology introduction, operational excellence and continuous reliability improvement. Baker Hughes will deploy the Centrilift SP Superior Performance ESP system, which features an extreme-duty pump design.

Andy O’Donnell, president of the Western Hemisphere for Baker Hughes said: “We are pleased to continue our strong relationship with Repsol in Ecuador. Artificial lift production projects require a long-term commitment to constantly improve equipment performance, and this contract means we can continue building on the gains we’ve achieved over our 12 year partnership with Repsol.”
