STAVANGER, Norway -- Ejector technology specialist Transvac Systems has won a major contract from FMC Technologies to supply pressure boosting and flushing jet pumps for Petrobras’ Marlim subsea separation project.
The announcement during ONS 2010 in Stavanger says the project includes special ceramic wear-resistant internals, and it will undergo full flow performance mapping using Transvac’s R&D facility flow loop system.
The Marlim project consists of a subsea separation system designed to separate water from oil, gas and sediments and re-inject the separated water. The oil, gas and sediments then are routed to the host platform topside. Marlim field is in Campos basin at a water depth of 870 m (2,854 ft).
