Order for Mono Pumps

A substantial order for progressing cavity pumps for Argentina’s largest oil company, YPF Argentina has been won by Mono Pumps. Placed through IDP De Argentina in Buenos Aires, the order, worth £750,000, for 18 industrial E Range pumps represents Mono’s largest single order to date. Due to the highly corrosive nature of formation water, all rotating parts within the pumps which are wetted by the formation water are made in Duplex stainless steel. Destined for the Lomitas Chiuhido oil field in the Neuquen Province, the pumps will be installed on a first stage upstream process to transfer a mixture of oil, formation water and solids to the tank separator. The pumps are scheduled for installation imminently, and satisfactory performance by the pumps could set the standard for all YPF’s future pumping requirements.
