Enpro Subsea and Can-K Partner
Enpro Subsea and DASS Can-K Pumps Inc. have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which will leverage each company’s expertise to deliver multiphase pumping solutions for topside and subsea well boosting.
The announcement sees Can-K’s patented Electro Submersible Twin-Screw Multiphase (ESTSP) pump technology being combined with Enpro’s subsea systems expertise and patented Flow Access Modules (FAM) technology to create a retrievable subsea pumping solution targeted primarily at individual wells.
The agreement will allow both companies to collaborate to provide targeted solutions globally for subsea and topside applications offering a low cost, low risk method of integrating Can-K pumps within new and existing subsea infrastructure.
FAM essentially creates an enhanced production ‘USB port’ within the jumper and flowline envelope. This supports the use of standard subsea Xmas trees and manifolds, with the FAM providing life of field flexibility within the system design. Pumping is one of a range of production enhancing technologies that FAM enables. These include metering, sampling, digital data acquisition and hydraulic intervention.
The first units are expected to complete subsea testing in 2020.
