GR Energy Services Flex Flow water management system integrates a surface horizontal pumping system with variable speed drives, surface controls and automated reporting capabilities to lower the total cost of operations of saltwater disposal, injection and water management. With trailer-mounted or permanent installations, the Flex Flow water management system offers significant cost and performance advantages over conventional triplex positive displacement pumps. Surface facilities engineers using these systems have documented lower maintenance and repair costs, longer run life and greater operating flexibility and efficiency.
Flex Flow water management system advantages deliver bottom-line benefits for flowback, frac and water transfer services:
- Lower operating cost leading to reduced LOE
- Less maintenance with minimal downtime (98% to 100% run time)
- Highly mobile, unique trailer-mounted system solutions
- Efficient filtration system that prevents impurities from entering the pump and wellbore
GR Energy Services deploys a unique trailer-mounted or permanent horizontal pumping system that can be used to transfer water in a variety of production operations. The highly mobile HPS solution requires little maintenance, so service callouts are kept to a minimum. In addition, it has a robust filtration system that prevents impurities from entering the pump or the wellbore.
The HPS includes the following components:
- Centrifugal pump, consisting of stages, each with one impeller and one diffuser, that move the fluid through the pump and up into the production string. The impeller rotates and energizes the fluid, creating a velocity head, while the diffuser slows and redirects the fluid, creating a pressure head.
- 480-V, 3,500-rpm motor, with three horsepower options—100, 300 and 500 hp.
- Thrust chamber, which carries the thrust load developed by the multistage pump. It connects to the motor shaft on one end and the pump shaft on the other.
- VFD with HP/kVA delivery capabilities.
- Dual pot filter system for suction.
- Charge pump for suction, which supplies power fluids from the tanks to the HPS.
