Save Energy in Choosing Oil Pumping Systems


  • Adnan Yasser Majeed Ministry of Oil, Basra Oil Company



Some non-specialists raised problems about the turbine pumping system in the Al-Faw oil depot, and it reached the Office of Internal Oversight and some deputies in Parliament, so I decided through the research to clarify the basis on which to rely on appropriate pumping systems to achieve the required operational conditions with the least energy expended And this reflected the choice of pumping systems that were chosen to work in Al -Faw oil depot. Through the research, it was found that the best way to choose oil pump systes and to save the energy used for pumping is to use the variable speed of the pump with the use of the parallel pumping system for multi pumps, which was used in the Faw oil depot.
