ConocoPhillips – PPM Mech Seal Range
ConocoPhillips reduced running costs thanks to the lower energy consumption and higher efficiency design.
As part of a process refurbishment on the oil rig ‘Judy’ in the J-Area infrastructure on the Britannia oil field in the North Sea; ConocoPhillips required a custom-built pump to fit within the confines of the limited space and the existing pipework. These pumps would need to pump sea water with chlorine to flush out different parts of the system throughout the operations.
ConocoPhillips submitted their enquiry to Crest Pumps for a process pump that would be built to the exacting rig requirements, including a seal flush plan, long coupled and with a bronze coupling guard. Crest Pumps Group supplied the PPM32/3 mechanical seal pump in thermoplastic polypropylene manufactured from solid in our UK manufacturing plant.
As a result of choosing Crest Pumps for their flushing process, ConocoPhillips has been able to drastically reduce operational costs thanks to the energy efficiency of the Crest Range.
