Pipeline and Gas Journal’s worldwide survey figures indicate that 118,623 miles (190,905 km) of pipelines are planned and under construction. Of these, 88,976 miles (143,193 km) represent projects in the planning and design phase; 29,647 miles (47,712 km) reflect pipelines in various stages of construction.

Pipelines exist for the transport of crude and refined petroleum, fuels – such as oil, natural gas and biofuels – and other fluids including sewage, slurry, water. The best data, in 2014, gives a total of slightly less than 3.5 million km of pipeline in 120 countries of the world.*

Pumps and Pipeline
The transported oil is kept in motion by pump stations along the pipeline. The pump stations adjust the pressure, lost over time and tremendous distances, monitor the flow and other information about the transmittal product. Usually, ensuring the flows at speed of about 1 to 6 meters per second (3.3 to 19.7 ft/s).
Besides, pumping stations are coming for an aid when the higher through-put capacity is required in the pipeline. Simply another pipeline pumping station may be added to overcome the challenge.
There are a number of different types of pumps that can be found in the pumping stations. Most commonly used are centrifugal type for lower viscosity transported products, and PD pumps, such as screw or gear pumps, for higher viscosity products.
With Western Energy pumps broad portfolio and expertise gained through the years, large majority of pipeline applications requirements are easily fulfilled.

Pipeline Injection Pump

Benefits:  Self-priming, this type of pump with single, two or three pairs of screws is suitable for transferring fluids with low, medium, high and very high viscosity, up to 35000 cST and flowrate up to 3000 m3/hr. High Suction Lift Capabilities (7 to 8,5 m). Well suited for liquids sensitive to shear forces and turbulences thanks to the low internal velocities given by the screw movements.


Crude Oil Transfer Pump

Benefits: Designed to aid in liquid terminal operations, our pumps are designed to improve operational efficiencies for viscous fluid transfers, significantly reduce maintenance costs by providing highly reliable and easy to maintain pumps. And the pump designs are power efficient, ensuring our clients save on energy, save on costs.


Gasoline Transfer Pump

Benefits: A sealless pump is best applied when leakage cannot be tolerated; these pumps present absolutely no risk of emissions or leaks, which can harm productivity, employees and the environment. For applications involving high temperatures, high pressures and volatile substances, our range of sealless magnetic drive pumps are the clear choice.


Pulsation Dampers

Benefits:  Pulsation damper ensures a smooth and continuous fluid flow as well as pump metering accuracy. Prevent vibrations, eliminate or minimize pulsation and reduce the load on the pump itself. Widest range of damper models available with volumes from 0,04 to 50L, in different types


LNG Transfer Pump

Benefits:  Our range of reciprocating pump is specifically designed to meet LNG applications while providing both efficient operation and extended product life. The pumps are designed and manufactured to the current API 674 standard.


Fire Fighting

Benefits: Custom design fire pump packages to requirements of NFPA 20 standards and to your design specifications. We offer a broad range of horizontal and vertical split case, vertical in-line, end suction and vertical turbine designs over a wide range of rated capacities and pressures; pumps for every fire pump application
