The new Alnas equipment has successfully run for 180 days and continues to operate inside oil wells operated by Slavneft-Megionneftegaz. The compression pump systems designated as 0615 were created specially for operation inside complicated wells that have a higher-than-normal content of salt and solids. The upgraded design and use of impeller movable parts made of Ni-Resist heavy-duty cast iron have increased resistance to abrasive wear, while yielding a boost in operational life of two to three times as compared to regular pumps, and 10 to 15 percent higher energy efficiency. The innovative design choices have helped increase the volume of transferred fluid per stage by 14 percent, and efficiency, to 60 percent from 56 percent. 
"Increased reliability has become an essential manufacturing rule as oil companies have begun developing complicated wells. That said, we do our best to improve the maintainability of the new systems, so we prioritize commonality along with performance when manufacturing. The interchangeability of parts across the new pump range is currently at 95 percent, helping oilmen reduce maintenance costs by an average of ten percent," commented Konstantin Samsonov, head of oilfield equipment sales and service at Rimera Group.
