Enpro Subsea and DASS Can-K Pumps recently revealed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), which can leverage each firm’s expertise to ship multi-section pumping solutions for topside and subsea well boosting.
The announcement sees Can-K’s patented Electro Submersible Twin-Screw Multi-phase (ESTSP) pump know-how being mixed with Enpro’s subsea technology and patented Flow Access Modules (FAM) expertise to make a retrievable subsea pumping solution initially focused at individual wells.
The accord will let each corporation to cooperate in supplying targeted solutions globally for subsea and topside applications offering a low price, low-risk technique of integrating Can-K pumps inside new and present subsea infrastructure.
FAM creates an enhanced manufacturing ‘USB port’ inside the jumper and flowline envelope. This helps using standard subsea Xmas timber and manifolds, with the FAM offering life of area flexibility within the system design. Pumping is undoubtedly one of an array of manufacturing enhancing applied sciences that FAM allows. These embrace metering, sampling, digital information acquisition, and hydraulic intervention.
Enpro Subsea CEO, Ian Donald, stated: “We’re delighted to be working with Can-Okay. These progressive twin screw multi-part pumps are used efficiently in downhole and topside purposes, and the know-how lends itself to single or small cluster well purposes. Mixed with FAM, the system supplies a differentiated boosting technique for our shoppers by allowing a cheap simplified infrastructure and powerful redeployment from well to well to ship most ultimate restoration from subsea belongings.”
Pradeep Dass, president and CTO of DASS Can-K Pumps mentioned: “Twin Screw Pumps have been used in the oil and gas trade for over 75 years with incremental enhancement. Our confirmed ESTSP multi-section pump signifies a step change when it comes to efficiency as well as reliability. We’re waiting to work with Enpro Subsea to bring these benefits to the subsea sector.
The first models are anticipated to complete subsea testing in 2020.
