Have you ever received a failure analysis report from your ESP supplier stating the cause was “well conditions?”
We thought so. Now, say you’ve bought a new car and after a month it breaks down. The dealer says the failure was caused by road conditions, which are not covered by warranty, so you’ll have to buy a new one. You’re not going to be happy.
Similarly, we don’t buy the well conditions culture of our industry. Instead, we believe in getting the right equipment, for the right environment, with the right processes to support its use.
That’s why we provide expert witness in the teardown of artificial lift equipment to determine:
- The failed component
- The failed sub-component
- The reason for the failure
- Crucially, the corrective action to prevent it happening again
Implementing corrective action is key to continuous improvement, fewer failures, longer runlives – which means less stress and a lot more $$ in your pocket.
