A pressure-retaining shroud encapsulating an ESP, with a flow intake via a lower tailpipe/stinger to engage in a permanent packer with PBR receptacle. The encapsulation provides a reliable second barrier to well fluids.
Single CAN/POD System
ESP Single CAN (POD) - utilising a unique mid-shroud packer, the Single CAN has two independent ESP systems in one continuous CAN.
Twin CAN/POD System
ESP Twin CAN (POD) - by configuring one CAN above the other, two complete ESP systems can be deployed in one well to provide a downhole backup system.
The RMSpumptools CAN Hanger provides a beneficial alternative to running retrievable packers where a second barrier for produced fluids is required.
ESP and Motor Shrouds
The ESP Motor Shroud is a cylindrical shroud which covers the motor length of the ESP. It is hung off a special clamp at the pump intake neck and is packed off against the body of the pump section to prevent fluid from entering from above.
High Performance. Maximum Protection.
A pressure-retaining shroud encapsulating an ESP (sometimes called a POD or a CAN), with a flow intake via a lower tailpipe/stinger to engage in a permanent packer with PBR receptacle. The encapsulation provides a reliable low-cost second barrier to well fluids. The system can also be utilised in a dual ESP system where wireline access below the ESP is not required.
The system retains pressure by means of a sealed shroud around the pump assembly. The power cable enters the sealed shroud by means of an electrical penetrator. An ADV (automatic diverter valve) is often incorporated inside the encapsulation to allow free flowing fluids to bypass the ESP. The bottom tailpipe enters a packer above the perforations to create an annular barrier.
