Amarinth wins further pump order in Iraq

Last year, Amarinth secured its first business in Iraq through agent Horizon Development International, to provide 12 API 610 11th edition Super Duplex OH2 A-Series pumps for the Zubair Initial Production Facility’s produced water treatment package in Basra on a short 24 week delivery.

Following the successful delivery of those pumps, US oil services company Weatherford International placed a further order for eight pumps to the same specification on the same 24 week delivery.

This latest order brings the total order value of pumps supplied by Amarinth to the Zubair Initial Production Facility to more than US$1.5 million.

Amarinth is in discussions with Weatherford International about supplying more pumps to the same project.

Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, said: “Whilst Iraq still poses many significant challenges, having a good local agent such as Horizon Development International is essential for trading in the country. We are currently seeing further significant growth opportunities in the region and the work we have completed to date to establish a foothold in the market, and these new reference sites coming online within Iraq within the next 12 months, will leave us in a strong position to win further business in the region.”
