Amarinth secures order from ZADCO for API 610 OH3 pump with cost-effective design and project management process

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 17 August 2017


Amarinth,  a  leading  company  specialising  in  the  design,  application  and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to the Oil & Gas, petrochemical, chemical, industrial and power markets, has secured an order from ZADCO for a super duplex API 610 OH3 pump, and utilising video conferencing significantly reduced project cost.

When the Zakum Development Company (ZADCO) required an emergency seawater sanitary pump for the Upper Zakum Offshore Oil Field Development, it once again turned to Amarinth, which has provided pumps to numerous ZADCO projects, for a solution. Upper Zakum is located approximately 84km offshore to the north-west of Abu Dhabi and is the second largest offshore oilfield and fourth largest oilfield in the world, currently producing 640,000 barrels of oil a day.

The project was being run to a tight budget and so Amarinth proposed reducing costs by minimising travel between the UK and UAE for both organisations through its state-of-the-art video conferencing facility. In the UAE, the video conferencing was hosted at NAMA, who are Amarinth’s agent in the UAE, enabling all parties to work together as one.

Technical and project meetings were conducted via video conferencing which enabled all personnel associated with the project to work together in real time. Shared screens allowed design information to be interacted with by all and project and commercial discussions  were  concluded  quickly  and  with  greater  clarity  than  the  traditional multiple  rounds  of  physical  meetings.  The  video  conferencing  also  delivered  more flexibility,  with  adjournments  as  needed  and  then  reconvening  when  ready  with minimal delays.

Working  closely  together  in  this  way  allowed  Amarinth  to  quickly  understand  the process and directly design the footprint into the process design for maximum cost savings. Amarinth was also able to spend more time walking through and explaining cost  variations  alongside  the  design  decisions  with  ZADCO  at  an  early  stage, minimising the risk of additional costs or surprises later in the project.

Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, commented: “As the oil and gas industry seeks to reduce costs, it is not only in the product design that we can deliver against this but also in the way we conduct business. Both ZADCO and ourselves were delighted with the savings made on this project utilising our video conferencing suite  across  all  stages  of  the  project  and  we  look  forward  to  working  with  other customers in the same way so that they too can realise the benefits.”
