A recently signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) will see Enpro Subsea and DASS Can-K Pumps collaborate to deliver multiphase pumping solutions for topside and subsea well boosting.
Can-K’s electro submersible twin-screw multiphase (ESTSP) pump technology will be combined with Enpro’s subsea systems experience and flow access modules (FAM) technology to create a retrievable subsea pumping solution.
The solution will be targeted primarily at individual wells, according to a release from Enpro.
Enpro’s FAM technology creates an enhanced production ‘USB port’ within the jumper and flowline envelope, which supports the use of standard subsea xmas trees and manifolds.
“We're delighted to be working with Can-K,” commented Ian Donald, CEO of Enpro Subsea. “These innovative twin screw multiphase pumps are used successfully in downhole and topside applications and the technology lends itself to single or small cluster well applications. Combined with FAM, the system provides a differentiated boosting strategy for our clients by enabling a cost-effective simplified infrastructure and efficient redeployment from well to well to deliver maximum ultimate recovery from subsea assets.”
“Twin screw pumps have been used in the oil and gas industry for more than 75 years with incremental improvement,” added Pradeep Dass, president and CTO of DASS Can-K Pumps. “Our proven ESTSP multiphase pump represents a step change both in terms of performance and reliability. We're looking forward to working with Enpro Subsea to bring these advantages to the subsea sector.”
The first units under the MoU are due to complete subsea testing in 2020.
