In multi-phase pumping, solids, liquids and gas are transported from the well site to a processing station through a single pipeline without separation.
SEEPEX progressive cavity pumps for multi-phase pumping handle fluids with a gas yield of up to 99% with minimal technical accessories. The rotating parts, rotor and stator, and materials in SEEPEX pumps are adapted to each application. As a result, stator overheating is prevented, and the pump operates trouble-free at the optimum speed for the gas volume fraction.
SEEPEX pumps deliver a wide range of benefits for multi-phase pumping:
- Pump high gas/liquid ratios
- Handle high sand content
- Convey highly viscous fluids
- Easily handles gas slugs
- Compact design
- Low operating speeds
- Low investment costs
- Low operating and maintenance costs
- Fully automatic control systems
- Series and parallel operation
SEEPEX multi-phase pumps handle differential pressures up to 20 bar (300 PSI) and flow rates up to 100,000 barrels per day. They are a profitable and highly efficient alternative to separation systems.
