Hydra-Cell® Pumps in Water Management Applications


Water Decanting


Reducing Downtime and Minimising Costs for Unmanned Site

Reducing Downtime and Minimising Costs for Unmanned Site

A US Oil & Gas company needed a more reliable and cost effective way to decant and transfer produced water from gun barrel collection tanks. The site is unmanned and they had a lot of downtime due to their existing pumps running dry and leaking due to the corrosive and abrasive nature of the produced water; electrical power at site was also an issue.

By introducing Hydra-Cell® G35 diesel engine driven pumps, the customer achieved a very reliable solution, minimising cost of operation.

Process Challenges

  • Salt water disposal is a non, value-adding process; Keeping the total costs, acquisition, operating service and maintenance to the lowest level is very important
  • Often in remote unmanned locations, reliability is very important
  • Potential for pumps to run dry due to water tank level sensors failing
  • Ensuring environmental concerns are addressed

Hydra-Cell® Pump Advantages

No Seals. No Packing.

  • Ability to run dry indefinitely
  • Minimum maintenance and service costs
  • 100% containment of produced water keeping the site clean and eliminating ground contamination
