Siemens to upgrade crude pumping at Iraqi pipeline
Turbo pump trains to be supplied for EPC firm Progetti Europa & Global
German electronics and electrical engineering firm Siemens has announced that its Oil & Gas division has won a two-digit million-Euro contract for the supply of fuel efficient turbo pump equipment to be installed at a crude oil pumping station in Iraq.
The contract, which is due to be completed in June 2013, was signed between Siemens and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor Progetti Europa & Global SpA (PEG), and is for the supply and installation of two fuel-efficient turbo pump trains driven by Siemens SGT-400 Gas Turbines.
The trains will be installed at the new Habaneya PS4 crude oil pumping station located along the north-south Iraq Strategic Pipeline, enhancing the transfer of crude to a major depot, while reducing the station’s fuel consumption.
Ali Vezvaei, Siemens Executive Vice President for oil & gas operations in Middle East and North Africa said: “Habaneya is the second pumping station in Iraq that uses Siemens equipment; we are proud to be a technology partner of choice for Iraq’s oil and gas industry and will continue to support the rebuild of Iraq with our broad range of products and solutions.”
