Many oil producing wells require an artificial lift to increase the flow of fluids as the reservoir pressure is not high enough. Typically, electrical submersible pumps (ESPs) are used, but these pumps are not always operating efficiently and can cause costly downtime for operators. To avoid costly downtime operators must be able to detect events where flow drops, indicated by wellhead temperature drop, combined with motor amp and tubing choke data.
