The pumps are for condensate transfer duties and include the latest API 682 4th edition Plan 53B seal support systems along with Amarinth mobile top-up units.

The Iraqi Ministry of Oil-operated Majnoon oil field is a super-giant oil field located 60km from Basra in southern Iraq and is one of the richest oil fields in the world. The field is 52km-long, 15km-wide, includes 13 different oil and gas reservoirs, and has an estimated 38 billion barrels of oil in place.

Specified for ATEX Zone 1 use, the pumps are required on an aggressive 30-week delivery. On completion, they will be inspected and witness tested by Bureau Veritas, and supplied with a full legalised Iraq documentation package.

This is Amarinth’s first order from Azku Global Services and comes off the back of numerous projects that the UK pump company has successfully delivered into Iraq.

“We are delighted to receive this first order Azku Global Services which further strengthens our reputation in Iraq for successfully delivering robust and reliable pumping solutions on short lead times for its expanding oil and gas infrastructure,” said Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth. “Our ability to meet these aggressive delivery deadlines is assisted by the in-depth knowledge we developed across our organisation of the documentation and legislative processes required to supply pumps to Iraq.”
