Statistical and data mining methods for survival analysis of electrical submersible pump systems

Marcin Gorawski, Jarosław Życiński


Electrical submersible pump (ESP) systems are one of the more commonly used artificial lift methods that improve oil production from the well. This review of the literature describes survival analysis of ESP systems using statistical and data mining methodologies. Statistical analysis is based on the Kaplan-Meier estimator, while data mining utilizes a few traditional data mining algorithms.
