How Do You Ensure Your Carbon Steel Tank Is Protected?
The Safah Field, located in northern Oman, required methanol series of smaller competitor pumps mounted directly onto a 55 gallon (.208m) drum was used for a temporary injection, but the client needed a more permanent solution. CheckPoint Pumps & Systems provided a twin-headed E-series injection skid completed with a 528 gallon (2,000 L) carbon steel tank. Due to the aggressive environment, a 350 micron “chemﬂake” coated the tank to protect it from high temperatures and chemical corrosion, thus increasing the overall life of the tank compared to other lower-quality linings. This operation established uninterrupted and dependable ﬂow of 40 USG/D (151.4 L/D) at up to 4,000 PSIG (275.8 BARG) discharge pressure. Additionally, the client had the ability to run both heads at the same time while injecting into one or two injection points independently.
