ESP Design Mode

Weatherford engineers have worked extensively with pump suppliers to ensure that the calculations performed by WellFlo–ESP software are rigorously accurate. The program has a complete database of pump performance curves for all the models from leading manufacturers. These performance curves are used as the basis for the head calculations which are then adjusted for fluid density, pump frequency, number of stages and other system variables. This means that a reliable calculation of pump performance is performed at all operating conditions. The benefit of including pump modeling within the software is that it allows a pump to be modeled as installed in the real well, such as in a horizontal well, with a particular fluid type. This is more accurate than modeling the pump performance without considering other well characteristics.
