“I am very hard pressed to think of any element of the ESP system that they haven’t investigated from the power quality input to the turning of the motor.  I find the cause and effect diagrams an invaluable tool for investigating issues.”

John Graham, Suncor


“There are many benefits that Suncor has received from the small amount of funds that are paid to participate in the RIFTs group. Members include Producers from the offshore, SAGD and land-based operations throughout the world. If we had to individually pay consultants to do this work, it would be far more expensive. To be totally honest, I think that the RIFTs group has helped Suncor to increase its system run lives over several years.  It has definitely been money well spent.”
