The non-sealing pod is a simple method of deploying single or dual ESPs in a well that doesn’t require any production casing isolation from the produced fluids.

They are typically run below an ESP packer and used in completions with long tailpipe going into an extended reach well. The ESP inside the pod is isolated from any tensile and compressive loads during the installation.

The pod increases the fluid velocity going past the ESP motor to provide cooling and protects the production casing from erosion and corrosion due to turbulence at the pump intake.
