The Yanbu petro-chemical refinery in the Al Madinah province of Saudi Arabia processes 400,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) of crude oil from the Manifa offshore field producing high-quality, ultra-low sulphur-refined products. Two horizontal pumps were originally specified for the hazardous area, but these would not fit within the heavily restricted space. Amarinth therefore proposed using API 610 vertical in-line pumps.

The pumps were required on a tight 30-week delivery schedule and so Amarinth used its renown know-how and agility to leverage its existing range of API 610 vertical in-line pumps and create a bespoke design with a footprint of just 420mm x 420mm. The company used FEA analysis and a suite of design tools to ensure the pumps would operate reliably within the tight design envelope.

Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, commented: “We are delighted to have delivered this further order from Gas Arabian Services for Yanbu refinery which underlines our strength and strong partnerships within the Middle East. The pumps were for a challenging project, both the design work and the tight deadline, but one that Amarinth was once again trusted to deliver on by a world leading producer.”
