Case study details

A pipeline operator in the mid-continent region of the United States needed a surface pumping system to increase capacity in a 97-mile pipeline. The pipeline volume was 7,250 BOPD with discharge pressure of 1,460 psi.

Key issues for pump selection included lead times, maintenance expense, and the ability to control the speed of the pump using a variable speed drive (VSD). The operator also planned to use a SCADA system for remote monitoring.
