Optimization of ESP wells in the KS Field needs to pay attention to pressure changes in the surface pipeline network. This is done to obtain optimum conditions for the overall production of the field. In this study, six ESP wells were optimized with nodal analysis using Pipesim software. With the changes in the flow rate and pressure of the six wells, it is necessary to evaluate whether it will cause back pressure in the pipeline network on the surface. To evaluate the pipeline network, the Integrated Production Model (IPM) is used as an effective software. The results of the analysis show that the optimization of these wells can increase oil and gas flowrate by 58.28 BOPD and 0.168 MMSCFD, respectively, compared with the existing conditions. After optimization, backpressure occurs in two wells, namely KS-0039 and KS-0042. The effect of backpressure on oil and gas flowrates ranges from 0.44% to 1.70% and from 0.48% to 1.11%, respectively.
