ESP – Cable handling

ESP - Cable handling

Proper handling and running procedures are essential to ensure cable reliability. The majority of cable failures are caused by damage resulting from improper handling.

The ESP cable is often the most expensive item in an Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP) system. It is easily damaged if subjected to incorrect handling procedures. The weight of a drum of ESP cable may exceed 10 tons. If placed directly on the ground the flanges are likely to sink, causing the weight of the drum to rest on the cable. The drum should normally be supported on an axle . . .
