Wood Group ESP has developed a Vector drive, designed specifically for oilfield pumping applications. The Vector VII drive features a number of unconventional features not available on most drives. Leading the list is an easy-to-use operator control panel that includes a large, high-resolution, full-colour graphics display that is easy to read in bright light, an industry first for the oil field. Its software integrates operating information, downhole well parameters, and graphical data into a common display, eliminating the time it takes to scroll through several screens to retrieve data. A digital circular ammeter is displayed on the operator panel; therefore, the use of a mechanical circular ammeter for chart recording is no longer needed.
