FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 11 October 2016
Amarinth secures a further 500K order for the Al Dabb’iya Facilities Development Phase III project 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 a further order in excess of 500K for the Al Dabb’iya Facilities Development Phase III project from Fjords Processing in France for eight API 610 OH2 desalting system recycling pumps on an aggressive 24 week delivery schedule.
Following a similar size order of API 610 OH2 pumps for a gas dehydration and glycol regeneration package for the Al Dabb’iya Facilities Development Phase III project, Abu Dhabi, Amarinth has drawn on its familiarity with this project’s compliance, specifications and contract requirements to secure a further order which consists of eight API 610 OH2 recycling pumps worth in excess of -500K for the critical and highly corrosive duties of the crude oil desalting system being installed by the French operation of Fjords Processing.
The alloy 625 pumps with bespoke Plan 53B seal support systems are required on an incredibly aggressive 24 week delivery schedule which ran over the summer holiday period when the foundries were shut down for two weeks. In addition to the tight deadlines, the key components of the casings, shafts and impellers all require 3.2 Certification with full Positive Material Identification.
The Abu Dhabi National Company for Onshore Oil Operation (ADCO) Al Dabb’iya Facilities Development Phase III project involves increasing production by an additional 73,000 barrels of oil per day to achieve a total production of 145,000 barrels of oil per day 2018 which will be achieved by drilling 114 wells in new on shore and off shore clusters, extending existing clusters and adding new process trains to the existing central processing plant.
Amarinth has a deep knowledge of ADCO specifications and requirements having successfully delivered a number of previous projects of bespoke pumps on tight deadlines and will be using its renowned agility, business management acumen and strong supply chain to ensure the demands of this new project are met.
Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, commented: “We are delighted to be working with the French operation of Fjords Processing on this demanding and prestigious ADCO project. We have seen a significant upturn over the past year in clients requiring short lead-times of well under 30 weeks for high specification API 610 pumps. Amarinth has made significant investments in leading-edge technologies and we have further streamlined our business processes, including throughout our supply chain, enabling us to deliver successfully on what is fast becoming the norm for leadtimes and we are confident that we can continue to deliver as deadlines will no doubt become even more challenging as the oil and gas industry evolves.”View PDF
