Amarinth supplies interchangeable vertical pump for the Karachaganak project

07 Jun 2021

Amarinth, a world-leading, net-zero designer and manufacturer of low lifecycle cost centrifugal pumps and associated equipment for offshore and onshore oil and gas industries; nuclear and renewable energy generation; desalination, process and industrial markets, has won an order from Karachaganak Petroleum Operating (KPO) in Kazakhstan, for an ISO 5199 vertical pump to replace an existing Girdlestone pump.

The Karachaganak oil and gas condensate field is the biggest gas condensate field in Kazakhstan and is owned and operated by Karachaganak Petroleum Operating (KPO). The onshore field is spread over more than 280 sq km near Aksai, in north west Kazakhstan.

Amarinth has developed a range of pumps that are directly interchangeable with Girdlestone pumps and Amarinth products are already EAC certified, a requirement to provide equipment into the EAC Economic Union of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. Amarinth is also confident handling the complex GOST-K Certificate of Conformity documentary evidence required by Kazakhstan law to prove that equipment meets Kazakhstan requirements and standards, and the company has proven expertise in delivering against short lead time bespoke projects in the region, including a previous order for KPO.

ISG, as the long-standing agent for Amarinth in the region, was able to draw on all of Amarinth’s expertise to supply a new ISO 5199 vertical pump on a 30-week delivery that is fully interchangeable with the old pump. It will be supplied with a bespoke external lubrication system and manufactured in stainless steel with 3.1 material certification, meeting all the KPO requirements. KPO will now benefit from a further 25+ years of service life with a pump that is fully supported with availability of spare parts.
