Applications and Solutions für Oil & Gas Mid-/Downstream

"The effective use of our world’s oil and gas deposits represents one of the greatest challenges of our time. In particular, our NEMO®, NOTOS® and TORNADO® pump systems offer new opportunities to leverage dwindling oil resources and raise production rates of existing oil fields. Besides lower quality crude oils and high viscous oils also multiphase fluids can be produced economically and efficiently.“

Pumps for the Oil Industry

NETZSCH pumps for the oil industry are characterized by robust and reliable design. Constructions and materials are adapted to the requirements. Together with the customer's requirements are specified in the planning phase and the optimal pump is selected. The use of innovative pump technologies from NETZSCH offers safe and reliable production processes at low life-cycle costs. On this there is a large range of products available from which you can select the appropriate each pump system for on- and offshore, up-, mid- and downstream area.

Success Stories in the Oil & Gas Mid-/Downstream Sector

Three different pump types ensure reliable pumping on an FPSO off the English coast

Immense effort is required to access new deposits, as boreholes have to be prepared and created. It can take years of preparation before a new oil field comes online. For offshore wells, oil producers now frequently are opting for a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading Unit (FPSO). More...

NOTOS® multi screw pump is ATEX certified and can therefore be used in potentially explosive atmospheres

The Directive 2014/34/EU defines the marketing and provision of equipment and protective systems in potentially explosive atmospheres. More...

Constant delivery rate regardless of the product viscosity: NEMO® progressing cavity pumps in a remote oilfield

The transfer of crude oil always presents new challenges and so it was on an oilfield in the Tatarstan region of Russia. Crude oil, containing up to three percent sand, is conveyed there in a 24-hour operation and a pumping system that is set up outdoors, where temperature can sometimes drop to - 40 ºC.  More...

Maritime applications - lubricating fluids: NOTOS® multi screw pumps proof their strength in pumping lubricating fluids

When pumps are used on ships and in ports, the technology must meet special requirements: this means the pumps should not only cope with a really wide variety of fluids, but should also be as space-saving, maintenance-free and easy to handle as possible. More...

Tank stripping becomes more efficient: Multi screw pumps strip out even highly viscous media

As containers and temporary storage, tanks to entire tank farms are the backbone of many industries, in particular in the oil and fuel sector. But these types of media are often highly viscous, making it difficult to empty or ‘strip’ all the medium out of the tanks. More...

Vertical progressive cavity pumps from NETZSCH are ideally suited for extracting oil from oil tanks

When a major energy pipeline company looked to streamline their pumping system for their oil storage tanks, they called on NETZSCH to design and build customized vertical cavity sump pumps for lower maintenance and operational efficiencies. More...

Downstream – NEMO® Water-Injection Pump

Crude oil deposits are often discovered in spongy rock. To extract it, fluids must be pumped into the earth under high pressures. NEMO® water-injection pumps are particularly well-suited for this task, since their capacity can be changed in accordance with rotation speed.

Downstream – NEMO® Transfer Pumps

Great distances must often be covered in order to reach ports or refineries. Pump systems that can maintain a high conveying pressure at the lowest possible pulsation are required for such applications.

Downstream – NEMO® Multiphase Pumps

Only very seldom does crude oil arrive at the surface in pure form. Usually it is mixed with water, sand and gas. Conventional pumps require that the gas first be separated from the crude oil. With NETZSCH NEMO® multiphase pumps, this is not an issue. NEMO® multiphase pumps can be used for crude oil with a gas content of up to 100%.

TORNADO® T2 Industrial Rotary Lobe Pumps

The TORNADO® T2 rotary lobe pump is a positive displacement pump. The pumping action is generated by the contra-rotation of two rotors within the pump chamber which are synchronised externally. The media enters the pump chamber through the inlet port and is carried around the chamber by the rotors to the outlet port where it is discharged.
