Fort Worth, Texas-based Weir Oil & Gas (Weir), one of the world’s largest suppliers of pressure pumping equipment to the upstream market, today announced its SPM® QEM 3000 Frac Pump continues to yield unsurpassed results and savings in the field as it looks and performs like new after 3,200 hours of field-proven use in extreme conditions in the winter months in the Duvernay and Montney Shale Play in Alberta Canada.
Whatever conditions an operator is running legacy pumps in today, the SPM® QEM 3000 can run in similar conditions. Part of the company’s performance line of pumps, the SPM® QEM 3000 is expected to extend maintenance cycles by a factor of three as compared to what operators are achieving in similar service conditions currently. These enhancements dramatically affect their bottom lines, expanding traditional frac pump life span to improve uptime and productivity while reducing maintenance costs and total cost of ownership by at least 17 percent.
