ClydeUnion Pumps was awarded the contract to supply various pumps for the Nasr Phase-1 and Umm Lulu Phase-1 field development projects offshore Abu Dhabi, UAE.
ClydeUnion Pumps will supply the complete package of pumps which includes produced water pumps, open and closed drain pumps and flare drum pumps.
The complete pump package, which includes three CUP-BB3 multi-stage pumps, five CUP-OH2 end suction pumps and six low NPSHR reciprocating pumps, with UNI-LOK I sealing design, will be manufactured in SPX facilities in Annecy-France, Burlington-Canada and Battle Creek-USA with deliveries scheduled for April and May 2013.
The Nasr Phase-1 and Umm Lulu Phase-1 field development projects will support Abu Dhabi’s plan to increase oil production to 1.75 million barrels per day by 2020. Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO) is developing the two offshore fields and plans to spend at least $10 billion to boost the company’s crude output 60% by 2017.
