Amarinth provides API 610 pumps for the West Qurna-2 growth project in Iraq

Amarinth has delivered two separate orders of API 610 pumps, collectively value £1.2 million, for the West Qurna-2 enlargement venture in Iraq.
One of the Amarinth API 610 OH1 pumps with specialist Plan 53B seal support system prior to cargo to Cannon Artes.
West Qurna-2, located approximately sixty five km north-west of the seaport town of Basra, is among the world’s largest onshore oilfields. The growth challenge is predicted to extend the oilfield’s manufacturing capability from the present 400,000 barrels oil per day (bpd) to 480,000 bpd, with a target to attain a total production capacity of 800,000 bpd by 2025.
The first order, from Cannon Artes, was for seven tremendous duplex API 610 OH1 pumps. The bespoke designed pumps are for a low shear application and required specialist Plan 53B seal help methods incorporating air cooled seals and stainless-steel accumulators. All electrical items were IECEx licensed for use in an ATEX Zone 2 hazardous space. Despite the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic during the design and manufacture, supply was achieved in the required time of simply 32-weeks from order.
The second order, from SICIM, was for 3 tremendous duplex API 610 OH3 vertical in-line pumps for produced water treatment. The giant pumps had impellers of over 500mm diameter and the casings, that weigh 1.5 tonnes, have been cast in a foundry within the UK. Plan 53B seal support methods had been designed to fit within a constrained footprint and as the pumps were destined for an ATEX Zone 2 space, the motors, seal help techniques, and instrumentation were IECEx certified. Witness testing and inspection was undertaken by Bureau Veritas and a full legalised Iraq documentation package deal was delivered with the pumps. Printable was achieved on a brief 38-weeks, regardless of the global Covid-19 pandemic.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, mentioned: “We are delighted to have delivered these pumps to the West Qurna-2 enlargement venture, further underlining our dedication to tasks in Iraq and the Middle East. We have successfully delivered orders beforehand to Cannon Artes, however this was the first order Amarinth has acquired from SICIM, and we look forward to enterprise further enterprise with them sooner or later.”
