SPX brand pump saves costs

 The HSP is a hydraulic solution and the removal of electrical power systems greatly reduces the opportunity for equipment failure. Longevity is enhanced through the use of the power fluid supplied from the surface which provides life support to the critical balance and bearing systems. Rubbing bearings and seals have also been eliminated, improving reliability and extending the useful working life of the pump.

The HSP operates at high speed and has a high energy density, providing a compact design which is significantly shorter than an equivalent electric motor powertrain. The HSP is therefore easier to install and with increased robustness, reduces the risk of damage during its deployment. The single shaft design of the combined pump and turbine enables the HSP to be supplied fully assembled and tested from the manufacturing facility eliminating many of the reliability risks associated with rig floor operations.

The HSP is designed in the highest grade materials to resist wear and corrosion for the full life of a well. Its superior flexibility in operation means that it can handle 75% continuous gas content and 100% gas slugs, reducing the occurrence and risks of damage from gas lock. This means that it can easily handle significant variances in predicted design conditions without compromising reservoir production rates or being prone to early failure.
