The new order, for 15 ClydeUnion-branded Hydraulic Submersible Pumps, (HSPs), will be fulfilled by the main ClydeUnion facility in Glasgow, Scotland. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2014 and will continue through 2015.
The pumps will be used for key artificial lift service on EnQuest’s new offshore subsea heavy oil field project, currently being developed in the UK North Sea.
Each oil production well within the field will be equipped with a single HSP, located in the well bore more than 3000 feet below the seabed. The pumps will provide essential pressure boosting for the reservoir fluids to enable production at optimal rates to the field's FPSO facilities.
“SPX ClydeUnion Pumps’ HSP features a multiphase pump technology that has been successfully deployed for more than 12 years in a similar subsea well development and has been proven to offer high operational flexibility, availability and reliability," said Tony Renzi, president of SPX Flow Power & Energy.
