Amarinth delivers bespoke vertical pumps to Iraq’s Rumaila oil field

The order, placed by Thunder Supply based in Dubai, covers two bespoke API 610 12th Edition VS4 vertical pumps equipped with Plan 53B seal support systems. Designed specifically for the Rumaila oil field, these 3.5 metre long flare drain pumps will serve the super-giant oil field located 50 kms west of Basra, southern Iraq. Rumaila is Iraq’s largest oil field and is considered the third largest in the world.

Amarinth previously delivered ten API 610 OH1 condensate transfer pumps for the Rumaila field.

For this latest order, to overcome space constraints within the tanks, Amarinth engineered a bespoke support plate measuring just 30 inches in length. The innovative design accommodates the VS4 pumps while enabling the mounting of Plan 53B seal support systems at the side.

In addition to the pumps, Amarinth supplied a comprehensive package including a lifting frame, top-up trolley, and charging kit. Ensuring compliance with stringent safety standards, the motors, seal support systems, and instrumentation are IECEx certified, and the pumps underwent inspection and witness testing by Bureau Veritas. Amarinth also delivered a full legalised documentation package tailored to Iraq’s regulatory requirements, all culminating in a swift 25-week turnaround from drawing approval to delivery.

Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, said: “We are delighted to fulfil this latest order of bespoke API 610 VS4 vertical pumps for the Rumaila oil field, underlining our commitment and investment in Iraq. Through our extensive experience in the region, we have gained invaluable insights into the operational needs of the Rumaila Operating Organization, enabling us to develop tailored pumping solutions within tight deadlines that precisely address their requirements.”
