– New technology to the deeper offshore areas and to the exploitation of deep offshore reserves and deep offshore reserves must offer safe, economically viable and ecologically acceptable solutions to increase oil and gas recoveries. The use of electricity in downhole applications has shown to be beneficial. This article discusses the advantages of electrical machines in downhole applications that are already available or developing. For downhole applications, permanent magnet devices are mostly used.
