Across the Permian Basin, power supply restrictions are putting a strain on operators’ production schedules and forcing delayed starts for their equipment.
Unfortunately for one of our customers, the limited access to electricity at a saltwater disposal site in Pecos, Texas meant that their three new Aquarius® HPS units would not be in operation for another seven months.
Despite this setback, our teams took the initiative to ensure these systems would remain in good condition during the interim. Without request from the operator, our technicians were on location every 45 days to rotate the pumps and prevent the bearings from plaquing while not in operation.
Once the power was available, the start up date finally arrived. As there can up to 15-20 people on location at once during this process including electricians, drive technicians, and other crews – any disruptions in the procedure would have significantly increased the operator’s expense and led to further downtime. For this case in particular, there was no room for error.
Thankfully, with lockstep coordination between our team members paired with a rehearsed game plan, we were able to finish the installations in less than half the estimated time.
Satisfied with our team’s impressive performance, the customer ordered nine more Aquarius pumping systems for three additional locations.
By working within the customer’s schedule and ensuring correct alignments on the first install, our team got all three systems up and running in record time without any mechanical or vibration issues. The result was a smoother, safer, and a more economical start to our client’s operations. Satisfied with our team’s impressive performance, the customer ordered nine more Aquarius pumping systems for three additional locations.
