MPP Short Course: Key Features of Topside and Subsea Multiphase Pumps
MetadataShow full item record
This short course targets Rotating Equipment engineers, Process engineers, and Project engineers interested in gaining a better understanding of the unique characteristics of Multiphase Pumps. The agenda is built to go through the key features of Topside and Subsea Multiphase Pumps (MPP), for both Twin-screw and Helicoaxial technologies. The program will start with the definition of the main parameters describing a multiphase flowing process. Then for each MPP technology, the presenters will go through the working principles, the design/construction features, operational behavior, operational methodology, and typical control and protection strategies. At the end of this session, the attendees will have gained a working knowledge of both volumetric and a rotodynamic MPP’s, realistic benefits of their application on a producing field, and what is the state-of the-art of these technologies, for both Topside and Subsea.
