CONTROL SAND AND SOLIDS IN HORIZONTAL WELLS
 

ESP SLOTTED SCREEN

The ESP slotted screen uses a screen wrapped around a pre-perforated basepipe to provide exceptional proppant and sand control in unconventional, horizontal, and deviated wells. The basepipe offers exceptional collapse protection and the screen helps prevent plugging.

BENEFITS

Control sand in deviated and horizontal wells

The basepipe-with-screen design stands up to the wear and tear of running to depth in deviated wells
Increase ESP runlife in unconventional wells

Screen design filters proppant and sand while maximizing flow to reduce motor temperature and extend ESP runlife
Avoid screen collapse


The basepipe provides structural strength to prevent collapse



applications

  • Horizontal, highly deviated, hydraulically fractured wells
  • ESP protection from sand, proppant, and free scale 300 μm and larger

capabilities

  • Helps protect downhole pumps during production startup and throughout the ESP’s runlife
  • Available in 319 (81 mm), 433 (110 mm), and 677 (172 mm) series

features

  • Slotted screen blocks sand and proppant to prevent pump damage and extend ESP runlife
  • The screen wraps around a basepipe to provide exceptional crush and collapse strength for highly deviated, horizontal wellbores
  • Screens can be added in multiple sections to provide more flow, reduce motor temperature, and extend ESP runlife
  • A safety valve opens when the filter becomes plugged so flow can continue

The slotted screen filter provides exceptional sand control for particles 300 microns and larger while maintaining the same burst and collapse ratings as tubing. So you can be confident the slotted screen assembly will reach target depth intact and ready to perform, even in highly deviated and horizontal wellbores.

Our slotted screen wraps around a basepipe and consists of a slotted external screen, a disconnecting unit, a safety valve, and a centralizer. It can be mounted on the base of the pump section on the intake, on the casing itself, or on the packer.

Even the most effective screen or filter will eventually plug in the right conditions. When the screen is no longer able to provide sufficient flow for the ESP, a valve opens to maintain flow, lower motor temperature, and extend ESP runlife. Total screen length is determined based on ESP performance ratings.
