Offshore production – flow assurance

Keep production flowing in cold, deep water

Pumps for flow assurance service, also known as dead oil and hot oil circulation, are critical to maintain oil production in deep cold water. Though usually driven by an electric motor, the Sulzer BB3 and BB5 pumps can be engineered with diesel engine drivers. Along with our reputation for quality and efficiency, our pumps are right for this service.
