Sulzer has received an order for five more high pressure water injection pumps (HPcp) having already delivered 11 HPcps to a site off Guyana.
This delivery will help support the largest floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel in Guyana’s Stabroek block.
Guyana has some of the world's biggest offshore discoveries made in years, with 10 billion barrels of recoverable oil and gas starting to come online since 2019.
In this project, the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company will also lease and operate the FPSO for two years.
As a result, the efficiency and reliability of the major pumping equipment are very important. Sulzer has a long-standing partnership with the EPC, which appreciates the high-quality products that have been delivered for similar projects.
The latest FPSO is designed to produce 250,000 barrels of oil per day, with an associated gas treatment capacity of 450 million cubic feet per day and a water injection capacity of 300,000 barrels per day.
Operating in water around 1,800 meters deep, the new vessel will have a storage capacity of around 2 million barrels of crude oil.
High-pressure pumps are used to inject treated seawater or produced water into the aquifer formation to stimulate and drive oil to the production riser.
