Salty Crude Pumping System Online at Aghajari Oilfield: Aghajari Oil and Gas Production Company has revamped a salty crude oil pumping system at the Parsi Dareh-Ney Production Unit of Parsi Aghajari Oilfield.
According to the company, the system was renovated by the company’s experts in a less-than-five-months period. Last year it was rendered worn-out and needed to be revamped.
With 13,500 b/d of production capacity, Parsi Dareh-Ney Production Unit separates salty crude oil and from sweet crude and delivers salty crude to Karanj Desalination Unit for sweetening.
Operation of the first phase of the system was achieved with the help of the reconstruction of a pump machine and using existing capacities with the domestic forces of the company, and preparation of two other trains was on the agenda of the company, said Ebrahim Piramoum, the CEO of the company. Repair and rehabilitation of pumping systems would be significant for the company, increasing the quality of the oil produced in the area, he added. Source: SHANA
