Enpro Subsea and DASS Can-K Pumps have announced a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to deliver multiphase pumping solutions for topside and subsea well boosting.
The announcement sees Can-K’s patented Electro Submersible Twin-Screw Multiphase (ESTSP) pump technology being combined with Enpro’s subsea systems expertise and patented Flow Access Modules (FAM) technology to create a retrievable subsea pumping solution targeted primarily at individual wells.
Enpro Subsea CEO, Ian Donald, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Can-K. These innovative twin screw multiphase pumps are used successfully in downhole and topside applications and the technology lends itself to single or small cluster well applications. Combined with FAM, the system provides a differentiated boosting strategy for our clients by enabling a cost-effective simplified infrastructure and efficient redeployment from well to well to deliver maximum ultimate recovery from subsea assets.”
Pradeep Dass, president and CTO of DASS Can-K Pumps, said: “Twin Screw Pumps have been used in the oil and gas industry for more than 75 years with incremental improvement. Our proven ESTSP multiphase pump represents a step change both in terms of performance and reliability. We’re looking forward to working with Enpro Subsea to bring these advantages to the subsea sector.”
The first units are expected to complete subsea testing in 2020.
