Pump Station Troubleshooting

Upon request from one of Onshore Clients, we've done Pump Station troubleshoting work. The scope was composed of 2 parts:

1. Identification of design issues inherent to the package. Identification of frequent vapor locks at pump suction and pump trips. System was modeled using relevant software and root cause of the problem was identified.

2. Resolution of the problem: 3 options were identified and the most appropriate option was selected. The pump discharge return line to the suction tank was modifed to enable more flow through the pump and the problem was fully resolved by implementing this modification.
