Xylem is helping the oil and gas industry effectively manage the millions of gallons of water required for production with the expansion of its leading pump portfolio to include: the rugged and efficient e-MP multistage ring section pumps, e-XC single stage double suction centrifugal pumps, and larger vertical turbine pumps. The company has critical expertise in how strategic water management can impact the environment, production and profitability, and the introduction of these robust products supports the producers’ goals of safeguarding the sustainability of their operations.
Designed to address the industry’s biggest issues, including minimising downtime and boosting and transporting water, these pumps deliver operational and cost efficiencies to help producers master the entire use cycle in a smarter, holistic way.
“Producers are looking for every advantage to maintain profitability in this volatile market,” said Joshua Allen, Xylem Industrial Solutions director of marketing, Americas. “Drawing on more than 170 years of experience, our experts developed these solutions to keep operations online and with as little cost or impact to the environment as possible.”
Xylem’s e-MP, e-XC and vertical turbine pumps are customisable to meet the demands in upstream and midstream applications – from source water and produced water to liquid transfer. Built on the thinking that every step of oil and gas production is part of a process versus a stand-alone function, these products are safer, stronger and more efficient for lower lifecycle costs and energy demands. More benefits of the products are outlined below.
- e-MP – The multistage ring section pump is ideal for high-pressure applications, such as produced water and crude oil LACT units. Versatile mechanical configuration and optimised pump hydraulics enable reduced energy consumption and wear and tear, while intelligent pumping features boost monitoring and control performance with multiple sensor interfaces and options.
- e-XC – Designed for maximum durability and performance in even the harshest environments, the e-XC comes in multiple models, configurations and a wide range of materials to handle myriad aggressive applications. A corrosion-resistant stainless steel impeller and wear rings as standard reduce downtime, increase efficiency and enhance overall performance.
- Vertical turbine pump – The highly efficient extension to the existing Xylem vertical turbine product line, it’s scaled with capacities up to 1.7 million bpd for the largest oil and gas fluid needs, including crude oil pipeline boosting and storage terminal transport. With bowl efficiencies near 90% and broad hydraulic coverage, operators can realise greater energy savings while maintaining superior pumping power
“Continued growth of the oil and gas industry makes sound infrastructure, including pipeline capacity and processing and storage facilities a top priority for producers to keep up with demand,” Allen added. “The reliable e-MP, e-XC and vertical turbine pumps can integrate seamlessly into these critical infrastructure projects, maximising uptime, with the added benefit of increased energy efficiency to reduce environmental footprint and achieve cost savings.”
