AccessESP has installed the first rigless ESP conveyance system in Nigeria to the Ukpokiti #4 offshore well for Shebah Exploration and Production Company Limited (SEPCOL).

The conveyance system reduces intervention costs and lost production, offering full-bore access to the reservoir without the requirement for a workover rig.

"AccessESP’s 375 series, 190hp permanent magnet motor and wet connector system were used to install the system."

AccessESP CEO David Malone said: "This collaboration between AccessESP and SEPCOL delivered a flexible solution tailored to the company’s specific needs in this region.

"We are pleased to work alongside SEPCOL and provide this effective solution for their first use of a rigless conveyance system."

The Ukpokiti #4 system was deployed via slickline to a depth of 5,900ft. The well has been in production for more than 40 days since installation.

SEPCOL operates the Ukpokiti offshore field, which was acquired from ConocoPhillips in May 2004, in shallow water Nigeria.
