Typhonix has been chosen to supply Low Shear Pumps together with Nordic Flow to Aker BP’s Yggdrasil development. Typhonix Low Shear Pumps reduce the environmental impact. The field proven low shear pumps are robust and efficient centrifugal pumps, increasing the produced water treatment efficiency through reduced oil droplet breakup.
Yggdrasil, formerly known as NOAKA, consists of the Hugin, Fulla and Munin license groups, and the area is located between Alvheim and Oseberg (www.akerbp.com). The concept consists of an unmanned production platform to the north developed by Equinor (Munin) and a processing platform with well area and living quarters developed by Aker BP (Hugin A) to the south. Hugin A is planned with low manning levels and is also being developed to be periodically unmanned after a few years of operation. The Low Shear Pumps will be part of the Hugin A processing facility.
Typhonix Low Shear Pumps has been developed together with the Research Council of Norway and leading oil companies: Equinor, ConocoPhillips, Vår Energi and Neptune Energy. The pumping system will be delivered in collaboration with our partners: AB GF Swedenborg Ingeniörsfirma and Dickow Pumpen GmbH & Co. KG.
