Production Increase in Colombia with New ESP System

Petrominerales Colombia Ltd (PCL) discovered the corcel field in the Llanos of Colombia. The discovery of the field had the potential to increase their production significantly. PCL desired that the well produced optimally and that the installed ESP will be reliable.


This was a new well that was expected to produce around 10,000 bfpd. But, being a new well design information was scarce and local equipment inventory was limited.

What we did

Designed and specified the ESP system, developed the start-up procedure, supervised the wellsite installation and start-up, provided ongoing analysis of ESP performance.


The ESP system installed in the corcel-1 well ran for the longest runlife of any ESP field installed in the corcel field.
