Abstract Manaqish (Minagish) field is located in western Kuwait, as the KOC manages all oil fields in State of Kuwait in respect of exploration, drilling, production and development services. Manaqish field produces a great range of the Kuwaiti oil. However, energy is a key element for oil extraction, as the increased consumption of electricity significantly affects the Kuwaiti economy. This study discusses the consumption ranges of each oil contracting company, proves the difference consumption among such companies, also it identifies the reasons of these differences, presents cures, solutions, and recommends ensuring selecting the best company in respect of lower electricity consumption. In this research, we collected samples and identified the petroleum companies, then studied such companies in terms of productivity, product efficiency, electricity consumption, and the production utilized methods in terms of environment protection, also we gathered information and data regarding these companies on a vis-à-vis basis to find out the companies with lower electricity consumption, and utilizing methods and approaches environment friendly, upon such gathered data and information the most environment friendly company and lowest electricity consumption has been selected. Keywords : ESP, power consumption, Minagish oil field, ESP, energy
