Normally the upper ESP is run until failure. Once failed, production can be resumed by starting the lower ESP.

This extends production time and to allows a workover to be planned to eliminate deferred production. The switchover between ESPs is achieved using diverter valves above the pump discharge on the primary and backup ESP.
