High Performance ESP Cable

EPDM Cable

The Most Technically Advanced ESP Products in the World

Summit ESP provides a complete line of high-performance cables designed to the exact standards required for electric submersible pumping systems.

To maximize operational longevity, all Summit ESP cables are tested to the latest API and IEEE recommended practices, as well as the stringent Summit specifications for each specific line.

Summit’s EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) cable uses an insulation compound specially formulated to be oil-resistant while maintaining excellent electrical properties. For additional protection, a lead or an additional EPDM jacket is applied over the insulation to add strength and provide an added shield to the insulation.

All of Summit’s three-conductor EPDM cables can be customized for specific well conditions requiring different armor materials.

Features

  • Industry standard solid copper conductor
  • Superior insulation compounds for all cables
  • Robust lead sheath for extreme well conditions
  • Armor offered in galvanized steel, 316L stainless steel and Monel®
  • Optional capillary tubes for chemical treatment
  • All standard cables are 5 KV rated

Benefits

  • More decompression resistant
  • Insulation and jackets compounded for longer life
  • Lead sheath impervious to fluid and gas intrusion
  • Armor profiled for maximum protection
  • Round cables are phase identified for easy installation
  • Extended operational life

SELF:

The workhorse of the Summit ESP cable product line is the SELF (Summit EPDM Lead Flat) cable. SELF cable is designed to operate over a wide temperature range from –40˚F (–40˚C) to 450˚F (232˚C). A corrosive-resistant lead sheath is extruded over the insulation, making the cable impervious to gas or chemical penetration. This lead jacket barrier protects the insulation in wells that have hot and gassy conditions and is the only true protection against gas decompression, commonly occurring within the cable when gas is present. The cable is designed for environments where H2S is greater than 3% or CO2 content is high.

SEER:

Summit’s SEER (Summit EPDM EPDM Round) cable uses an EPDM insulation and EPDM jacket in a round configuration. The three-conductor cables are designed to operate in a range from –60˚F (–51˚C) to 400˚F (204˚C). SEER cable is the right selection for hot wells that do not have issues with sour gas or gas decompression, commonly occurring within the cable when gas is present.

SELR:

Summit’s SELR (Summit EPDM Lead Round) cable uses an EPDM insulation and lead jacket over each phase. The phase wires are then twisted together, and an EPDM jacket is extruded over all three phases in a round configuration. This cable is designed to operate in a range from –40˚F (–40˚C) to 450˚F (232˚C) in environments where H2S is greater than 3% or CO2 content is high.

SENF:

(Summit EPDM Nitrile Flat) cable and SENR (Summit EPDM Nitrile Round) cable utilize a specially formulated low-swell nitrile jacket to protect the EPDM insulation from downhole environments. SENF and SENR cables are designed to operate from –30˚F (–34˚C) to 280˚F (137˚C) in operations with less than 10% CO2 and H2S concentrations below 2.5%.

Premium Heavy Lead Cable Offering

Summit ESP also offers polypropylene insulated cables with options of both lead and nitrile jackets. Summit’s polypropylene insulated cable product line uses a thermoplastic compound that delivers excellent electrical properties and operates best in wells with cooler downhole temperatures.

SPLF:

Summit’s SPLF (Summit Polypropylene Lead Flat) cable utilizes a corrosive-resistant lead sheath extruded over the polypropylene insulation, making the cable impervious to gas or chemical penetration. This lead jacket barrier protects the insulation in wells that have gassy conditions and is the only true protection against gas decompression within the cable. SPLF cables are designed to operate in a temperature range from –40˚F (–40˚C) to 250˚F (121˚C) and in environments where H2S is greater than 3% or CO2 content is high.

SPNF:

Summit’s SPNF (Summit Polypropylene Nitrile Flat) cable and SPNR (Summit polypropylene nitrile round) cable utilize a specially formulated low-swell nitrile jacket to protect the polypropylene insulation from downhole environments. SPNF and SPNR cables are designed to operate in a temperature range from –30˚F (–34˚C) to 205˚F (96˚C) and for operations with less than 10% CO2 and H2S concentrations below 2.%.
