Centrifugal multi-stage pumps for harsh downhole environments

Thursday 23 August, 2012

The IAH invite all members and interested parties to attend a presentation designed to provide a high level introduction to  centrifugal pumping technologies, detailing a number of specific case studies where deployment of such systems in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea has provided enhanced performance, improved reliability and extended runlife in some of the most challenging applications.

Central multistage pump manufacturer Schlumberger REDA have provided bespoke solutions to the oil & gas, water, mining, coal seam gas and geothermal industries. Through application of slim bore, high head, high volume submersible systems, high capacity surface horizontal pumping systems or a combination of these two technologies, the best solution can be sized, manufactured and delivered to meet project requirements.

Providing bore flow rates of 8 L/s in applications as slim as 100 mm I.D. up to 240 L/s in 350 mm I.D. bores and providing head capacities up to 2,000 m the range and flexibility of the Schlumberger REDA pumping systems can handle seasonal variations, capacity changes as well as covering applications where projects may have restricted reservoir information.  With metallurgies and technology designed to handle the most erosive and corrosive environments, systems originally designed for harsh oilfield environment have for decades been deployed in high volume water source wells, erosive mine dewatering environments and corrosive dewatering / geothermal applications.  Solutions include complete control packages and tailored monitoring systems to meet project and regional certification requirements.

About the speakers

Mark Gemmell of Schlumberger Artificial Lift will  discuss the technology and various application of centrifugal multi-stage pumps in a series of case studies.

Come join us

Mark will be speaking at the Irish Club on Wednesday, 29 August. Fellowship will commence from 5pm and the presentation will commence at 5:45pm.
