Amarinth will supply 12 API 610 OH2 A-Series pumps for the produced water treatment package for the Zubair Initial Production Facility in Basra in southern Iraq.
 
The pump company secured the order from Global Process Systems. Last year, Weatherford International won the oil field facilities contract that will boost oil production from Iraq’s Zubair oil field by 300 000 bpd. Weatherford awarded Global Process Systems the contract to supply the produced water treatment package. The bespoke pumps are required on a tight 24 week delivery.
 
Amarinth has also appointed Horizon Development International (Basra) as its agent for Iraq.
 
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, said: “We are delighted to have secured our first order in Iraq with the help of our new agent Horizon Development International. We see this as a significant growth region for the next 3–5 years and so it’s especially pleasing to have our first reference there. It is also extremely pleasing to be working with GPS again. We have built up a very good working relationship in the past and we are currently working on other live jobs with GPS for Iraq which we are also hopeful of converting to orders.”
