Amarinth supplies API 610 pumps for the West Qurna-2 expansion project in Iraq

Amarinth has delivered two separate orders of API 610 pumps, together worth £1.2 million, for the West Qurna-2 expansion venture in Iraq.
One of the Amarinth API 610 OH1 pumps with specialist Plan 53B seal help system prior to cargo to Cannon Artes.
West Qurna-2, located roughly 65 km north-west of the seaport town of Basra, is among the world’s largest onshore oilfields. Quadruple is predicted to extend the oilfield’s manufacturing capability from the present 400,000 barrels oil per day (bpd) to 480,000 bpd, with a goal to attain a total production capacity of 800,000 bpd by 2025.
The first order, from Cannon Artes, was for seven super duplex API 610 OH1 pumps. The bespoke designed pumps are for a low shear software and required specialist Plan 53B seal help methods incorporating air cooled seals and stainless-steel accumulators. All electrical gadgets were IECEx licensed for use in an ATEX Zone 2 hazardous space. Despite the global Covid-19 pandemic through the design and manufacture, delivery was achieved in the required time of simply 32-weeks from order.
The second order, from SICIM, was for three tremendous duplex API 610 OH3 vertical in-line pumps for produced water treatment. The giant pumps had impellers of over 500mm diameter and the casings, that weigh 1.5 tonnes, were cast in a foundry in the UK. Plan 53B seal support systems were designed to suit inside a constrained footprint and because the pumps were destined for an ATEX Zone 2 space, the motors, seal help techniques, and instrumentation had been IECEx licensed. Witness testing and inspection was undertaken by Bureau Veritas and a full legalised Iraq documentation package deal was delivered with the pumps. Delivery was achieved on a short 38-weeks, despite the global Covid-19 pandemic.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, stated: “We are delighted to have delivered these pumps to the West Qurna-2 growth project, additional underlining our commitment to tasks in Iraq and the Middle East. We have efficiently delivered orders beforehand to Cannon Artes, however this was the primary order Amarinth has acquired from SICIM, and we sit up for undertaking additional enterprise with them sooner or later.”
