Industrial Applications
The Schlumberger facility in Singapore is mainly responsible for manufacturing Electric Submersible Pumping (ESP) and Gas Lift systems for the oil and gas industry.
During the visit, you will witness how concepts and theories learnt in the classrooms are applied in the operations at Schlumberger. Many ideas go a long way to affect the way you live your lives. Read on to find out more!

(1) Artificial Lift for Oil and Gas Production
Artificial lift refers to the use of artificial means to increase the flow of liquids from a production well.
Why Artificial Lift is necessary?

  1. Increase pressure within the oil reservoir when the natural drive energy is not strong enough to push the oil to the surface
  2. While some wells have enough pressure for oil to rise to surface, most (96% of oil wells in US) do not, hence requiring artificial lift.
  3. Even those wells that initially possess natural flow to the surface, pressure decreases over time and artificial lift will be required.

Schlumberger offers lift products and services. Their integrated systems include electric submersible pump (ESP) systems and gas lift systems. Production of these systems are optimised for customers' operational needs, whether it is the demands of surface conditions, high-temperature, downhole operations or the high-pressure challenges of subsea installations.
