Applications and Solutions Oil & Gas Mid-/Downstream

Ulrich Eibl Business Field Manager 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.“

Success stories in the oil & gas mid-/downstream sector

Railcar Unloading Multi Screw Pump

NOTOS® multi screw pumps from NETZSCH ensure a high flow with low noise for crude oil unloading at an industrial rail terminal

A major industrial rail terminal operator in the United States initially wanted to improve the noise level and operation of a rail car unloading pump for crude oil at their facility. The tank terminal design included a rail car unloading rack employing three gear pumps. More...

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...

NETZSCH Pumps for Limited Space on Board: A wide Variety of Highly Viscous and Contaminated Media in Maritime Applications

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...
