Prysmian Electrical Submersible Pump cable systems provide a reliable, cost-effective way to power this critical oil production equipment. To meet the demands of the operating environment in which ESPs must operate and deliver reliable performance throughout their operating life, the Prysmian ESP cable range features:  

  • High temperature / high pressure resistance
  • High resistance to aggressive chemical environments
  • Handling flexibility
  • Ease of installation and maintenance

Prysmian ESP cables are specified with either a round profile which gives high flexibility and crush resistance or a flat profile which is recommended where there is a tight fit between casing and tubing. Both use Prysmian’s proprietary EPDM insulating and jacketing compounds to provide excellent heat and oil resistance and low swell. This ensures long service life in the most hostile operating environment.

Our highly qualified and experienced engineering team is available to design ESP cables most suitable for your specific applications, and also to optimise your installation and maintenance requirements.

ESP Cables

Downhole extraction systems are critical for crude oil extraction. The reliability of the electrical power supply to an Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP) system depends on the performance and reliability of the power feed through to the wellhead, power cable, motor lead cable, pig tail connectors and related equipment such as the pump and motor.
