At one point or another, all surface equipment needs maintenance or replacements, especially in harsh oilfield conditions. To get the system running smoothly again as quickly as possible, operators need a service company that can provide responsive surface pump replacements with minimal downtime.
When one West Texas operator was ready to downsize their horizontal pumping unit on a saltwater disposal well, they found out their supplier had a 4-week lead time to get the equipment on site. Not only was the old surface equipment now oversized for the amount of fluid being processed, but the pump housing also had severe degradation and needed to be replaced.
Hoping to get the equipment they needed faster and keep their operations on track, the customer contacted Valiant.
By providing quick delivery and a precise retrofit solution, Valiant executed a successful surface pump replacement and restored system efficiency while cutting downtime in half.
With a lead time of just 2 weeks, Valiant was able to cut downtime in half and retrofit a new VE5500 pump and 150HP motor onto their existing skid. In addition to getting the right surface equipment to the customer safely and on time, Valiant’s field service ensured there would be no vibration or leak issues once the pump started up. This included shimming the shaft, leveling and aligning the pump and motor, and setting up a controller with the correct trip parameters, as well as conducting vibration readings and following up with the customer to make sure they were happy with the results.
By replacing the old surface equipment faster and allowing the operator to realize lower power costs by utilizing a smaller motor, Valiant provided a retrofit solution that helped the customer improve pump efficiency and regain control of their operations.
