Amarinth secures a further $5.5M of pump orders in the Abu Dhabi region

Amarinth, a leading company specialising in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to the industrial, chemical and petrochemical industries has secured orders totalling $5.5M from the National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) in Abu Dhabi.

Drawing on its considerable experience and success of engineering pumps for North Sea operators, coupled with its recent strong growth in the Middle East, Amarinth has won four new orders from NPCC over the past months to supply pumps into both offshore and onshore projects. Amarinth has worked closely with Nama Development Enterprises, its agent for Abu Dhabi, to win this business and the long partnership has now produced a significant number of new pump orders for Amarinth in the region.

These latest pumps will be used on two major projects. The first will see Amarinth supplying API 610 A series and C Series pumps to the Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO) for use on the offshore Zakum Central Super Complex (ZCSC) Demothballing Project to increase oil production capacity from Zakum Field from 2012 onwards.

The pumps, manufactured in a combination of super-duplex and stainless steel, have had a number of bespoke design changes to meet the project requirements, such as base plates to fit the existing layout of the platform and modifications to existing casing designs to accommodate higher maximum allowable working pressures.

Following on from Amarinth’s previous success supplying the Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO), the remaining orders are for the same end user for two different parts of its ‘1.8 Million Project’. This will increase Abu Dhabi’s onshore oil production capacity from 1.4 to 1.8 million barrels per day and involves the development of four major oil fields. The first two phases cover work on the Bab-Thamama G/Habshan II and Qushawira fields, both of which have been awarded to NPCC.

For Bab Thamama, Amarinth’s scope is for 30 API 610 process pumps including VS4 and OH2 pumps, all manufactured with Inconel shafting to withstand the extremely harsh H2S rich environment. Amarinth also provided a flexible approach to financing this fast track project working closely with both its client and UK bank, Lloyds Banking Group, to ensure that all parties achieved their individual requirements for this project.

On the Qushawira part of the project, Amarinth’s scope was solely for vertical VS4 pumps on similarly demanding applications – once again underlining Amarinth’s growing reputation as a market leader in this particular pump type.

Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director or Amarinth commented: “Securing these orders in quick succession has underlined our ability to deliver a high volume of bespoke pumping solutions on short lead-times to the oil and gas industry and has further strengthened our relationship with Nama Development Enterprises. Whilst the industry globally is suffering from extended lead-times due to delays at the foundries caused by an overload of projects, we are still able to offer the shortest lead-times in the industry to our customers for these types of bespoke pumps. With that in mind, we are particularly delighted that we are seeing repeat business from ADCO.”
