Abstract: Abstract Electric submersible pumps (ESPs) are a widely used artificial lift technology. Conventional ESP systems provide power with a cable banded to the outside of the tubing. These systems have drawbacks in terms of installation speed and efficiency. To overcome these obstacles, a novel cabledeployed (CD) ESP system developed for use in a high hydrogen sulfide (H2S) production environment is a future solution. This paper focuses on the challenges, results, and lessons learned from the first f…
