This highly participative EuroMaTech online training course is designed to provide the participants with the skills to understand the principals of Electric Submersible Pumps (ESPs), how they are Selected, Installed, Operated and Maintained in both Onshore and Offshore Oil Production Installations.

This Electric Submersible Pumps (ESPs) online training course is interactive and encourages delegates to participate through questions and answers, along with opportunities to discuss with the presenter specific issues which may result in appropriate solutions. Participants will learn:

  • Mainstream ESP System Configurations
  • Alternative ESP System Configurations
  • Installing ESPs in Difficult and Harsh Environments
  • How ESPs and their associated Drives are Selected
  • Installing, Operating and Monitoring ESP Systems
  • Maintaining and Troubleshooting ESP Systems 


The Electric Submersible Pumps (ESPs) online training course has strong electrical engineering content. Therefore, personnel attending this training course should preferably have a basic understanding of electric principals.


This EuroMaTech online training course is designed to provide a practical and detailed insight for personnel who are directly involved in the design, selection, installation, operation and maintenance of Electric Submersible Pumps. The training course will greatly benefit:

  • Project, Design and Maintenance Professionals
  • Petroleum, Chemical and Mechanical Engineers
  • Electrical Engineers
  • Field Operators and Technicians
  • Maintenance Engineers and Personnel 


The Electric Submersible Pumps (ESPs) online training course aims to enable participants to achieve the following objectives: 

  • Learn about the different types of ESP Systems and where they are used
  • Understand the components and equipment used in ESP Systems
  • Learn about ESP Pump Technology
  • Learn about ESP Selection and Performance Calculations
  • Understand the Advantages and Limitations of various ESP Drive Systems
  • Understand the Power Supply Requirements of ESP Installations
  • Learn about installing, maintaining and troubleshooting ESP systems 


The EuroMaTech online training course will combine presentations with interactive practical exercises, supported by video materials, activities and case studies. Delegates will be encouraged to participate actively in relating their particular protection requirements at their workplace. 

There will be adequate time given for group discussion during and at the end of each session, including detailed case studies and anecdotes on based on the subject matter and the facilitator’s own experience in the field.


This Electric Submersible Pumps (ESPs) online training course covers a comprehensive range of topics relating to Electric Submersible Pumps (ESPs), which are used in 60% of global oil production. Several disciplines are covered in this programme – Petroleum, Mechanical, Chemical, Electrical, Control and Instrumentation, and as such it considers ESP installations as systems.

The selection of equipment, how it is installed, operated and maintained are all covered, with a particular emphasis on electrical, control and instrumentation as that is where a significant part of successful ESP operation resides.
