Flowserve Corporation received an order to supply an advanced multiphase pump package to SEW Infrastructure Ltd. for its end-user, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC), and its HZ Platform located off the coast of Mumbai, India. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The order includes Flowserve's double-suction, non-contacting twin-screw MP1-390 multiphase pump, built in accordance with API 676. The pump is specifically engineered to handle the most aggressive challenges of today's upstream oilfield production, including the accommodation of rapid changes in well fluid viscosities, water cuts, and gas volume fractions (GVF), which can vary over the life of the oilfield.

In addition to the multiphase pump, electric motor, and a variable frequency drive, the package includes in and out piping, strainer, and valves, all mounted on the deck in a two-tier skid arrangement designed and built by Flowserve to minimize the footprint on the platform.

The Flowserve MP1 pump will be used to maintain production of declining wells. Flowserve will work with India-based SEW Infrastructure Ltd. to install the MP1 pump package at Mumbai High oilfield, 160 kilometers (99 miles) off the Mumbai Coast.

"We are extremely pleased to supply our advanced design multiphase pump package to ONGC and SEW on this important project," said Jim Quain, president, Flowserve Sales Organization. "The Flowserve MP1 pump is an excellent example of our commitment to support our customers in the upstream market, especially offshore applications."
