Multiphase Transfer Pump (MPTP)

Processes gas fractions 0-100% | Easily Field Serviceable | Wide range of API gravity & viscosity | SkyView Reporting | Set & Forget PLC Control

Compact Compression’s Multiphase Transfer Pump (MPTP) is directly descended from the ground-breaking HCG Compressor, several of which have been employed in multiphase pumping service. Its principle of operation is very similar to the HCG Compressor with several key enhancements to product design and materials to increase performance, reliability and serviceability for multiphase pumping applications.

The MPTP is specifically designed for use at a satellite or header where production from multiple wells is collected. The resulting drop in line pressure allows the wells feeding into the MPTP to produce more.

The MPTP costs less than installing individual compressors on each well, has more throughput with less peak power demand and has a lower service cost than an HCG Compressor in multiphase service.

Separate pumps, compressors, separators, flares and process control systems at satellites can be eliminated with the MPTP. It can replace aging and maintenance intensive field infrastructure, reducing field OPEX. Lead times for new equipment, turnaround time for repairs and maintenance, capital costs and operating expenses are an order of magnitude less compared to typical twin-screw multiphase pumping systems.
