Key Features

* Apply the best operating practices to optimise production
* Track and troubleshoot problems such as gas, solids and corrosion
*Prevent expensive failures such as cable burn and impeller cavitation
* Design and analyze a system using up-to-date computer programs
* Establish ESP analysis monitoring methods and strategies
* Ensure optimum operator-vendor relationship for mutual benefits


Ideal for removing large amounts of liquids from wells, Electrical Submersible Pumps (ESP) are perhaps the most versatile and profitable pieces of equipment in a petroleum company's arsenal. However, if not properly maintained and operated, they could quickly become an expensive nightmare. The first book devoted to the design, operation, maintenance, and care, Electrical Submersible Pumps Manual delivers the tools and applicable knowledge needed to optimize ESP performance while maximizing of run life and the optimization of production.

The prefect companion for new engineers who need to develop and apply their skills more efficiently or experienced engineers who wish further develop their knowledge of best practice techniques, this manual covers basic electrical engineering, hydraulics and systems analysis before addressing pump components such as centrifugal pumps, motors, seals, separators, and cables. In addition, the author includes comprehensive sections on analysis and optimization, monitoring and trouble-shooting, and installation design and installation under special conditions.

Gabor Takacs is a Professor in the Petroleum Engineering Department at the University of Miskolc, Hungary where he held the position of Department Head from 1995 to 2012. He holds MS and PhD degrees in Petroleum Engineering and a doctorate from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Between 2007-2010, he was acting Director of the Petroleum Engineering program at The Petroleum Institute in Abu Dhabi, UAE and taught at Texas Tech University in from 1988/89. He has more than 35 years of teaching and consulting experience in the production engineering field. In 1995/96, he was selected "SPE Distinguished Lecturer", was "Outstanding Technical Editor" for the SPE journal, Production and Facilities, from 1992-2003, and chaired the Artificial Lift TIG (Technical Interest Group) of SPE from 1997-2003. He is the author of several books on artificial lift technology. His latest contribution, Electrical Submersible Pumps Manual, came out in 2009 from Elsevier. Dr. Takacs is a well-known consultant and instructor on production engineering and artificial lift topics. He has more than a hundred technical papers and taught various short courses for many oil companies in Libya, Mexico, Argentina, Indonesia, UAE, Romania, Malaysia, Peru, Oman, India, Egyipt, and Austria
