Greene, Tweed & Co. has developed a customized connector solution that greatly improved the performance of AccessESP’s rigless electrical submersible pump (ESP) system.

AccessESP, a Houston-based provider of ESP conveyance solutions, developed a through tubing retrieval technology that provides quick and easy ESP installation and retrieval using slickline, wireline or coiled tubing.

Greene, Tweed combined its proprietary materials portfolio with engineering and design expertise to meet AccessESP’s reliability management initiative and electrical requirements.

Greene, Tweed’s Seal-Connect solution combined its high-performance materials, including Arlon 1000, Arlon 3000 XT, and Chemraz 629.

Arlon 3000 XT provides:

• Improved volume resistivity 30 times that of PEK at 400° F (204° C)

• Dielectric strength measured at 730 V/mil in ASTM D149 testing

• Improved mechanical properties when compared to PEEK and PEK at 500° F (260° C)

“Greene, Tweed and AccessESP’s collaboration addressed one of the biggest challenges facing our customers – optimizing system reliability to maximize uptime,” Henry Stueber, vice-president and chief operating officer for Kulpsville, Pennsylvania-based Greene, Tweed, said in a statement.

“A thorough understanding of the application allowed us to design an innovative solution that enabled AccessESP’s reliability goals.”
