Amarinth supplies API 610 pumps for Kebabangan field in Malaysia

The pumps will be deployed in the Petronas operated Kebabangan field in the South China Sea, 130km offshore Sabah, East Malaysia.

The original plan was to supply the pumps from the UK and then assemble the API Plan 53B systems, made in Malaysia, at the ProSep yard. However this was not possible due to logistical constraints.

Amarinth used its own resources through its agent Geveke Oil & Gas Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur for pipework welding and adding the buffer fluid systems. Amarinth also used these facilities to ensure that the stringent pressure testing was carried out and a full test procedure completed.

As a result, Amarinth was able to meet the aggressive deadline that had been set and ensure that the pumps could be delivered by ProSep to the end-user, complete and ready for commissioning.

Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, said: “Since gaining our Petronas approved vendor status we have been active within Malaysia and are delighted with this order from ProSep for four API 610 pumps and seal support systems. In this case, we are also pleased that we could add further value through providing our expertise and local engineering and testing facilities ensuring that the challenging 26 week deadline for this order could be met.”
