26 | April 2019 | ARTIFICIAL LIFT: KEY PLAYERS service loads and overcome fatigue and corrosion- fatigue problems in beam pumping and progressive cavity pumping applications. Valiant Artificial Lift Solutions Valiant Artificial Lift Solutions is an independent oilfield service company specializing in downhole and surface pumping solutions that include elec- tric submersible pump (ESP) and horizontal pump systems (HPS). Valiant's product line also includes Pulse variable speed drives (VSDs), which provide automation and control capabilities for ESP and horizontal pump system applications and feature a 7-in. color touchscreen interface for user program- ming. Valiant's technical offering is paired with services ranging from application engineering and equipment sizing to well monitoring and perfor- mance analysis. In May 2018, Valiant and Weatherford entered a memorandum of understanding to jointly commer- cialize ESP and horizontal pump systems in specific international markets under the co-brand Weather- ford, Powered By Valiant. The company's ESP systems support flow rates up to 35,500 bbl/d and can be customized for pro- duction in abrasive or high gas content applications. Specifically, Valiant's Intercept suite of gas solutions includes standard and inverted shrouds, gas separa- tors, helico-axial stage designs for fluid conditioning and proprietary VSD gas-lock prevention software to help operators avoid, separate, process and control gas for improved ESP operation. Valiant's Aquarius horizontal pump systems, avail- able in surface and trailer-mounted configurations, are designed to produce up to 49,200 bbl/d (1,435.2 gal/min) at speeds up to 1,500 hp for surface pump- ing applications. Aquarius systems can incorporate monitoring and control options including pressure, temperature, vibration, flowmeters and backpressure controls, and a modular skid configuration provides resizing and customization capabilities. Valiant's primary manufacturing and service cen- ters are located in Midland, Texas; Norman, Okla.; and Bogotá, Colombia. These facilities provide equipment testing and assembly capabilities; dismantle, inspec- tion and failure analysis; and field service support such as equipment installation, operation, mainte- nance and repair. Veretek Veretek provides its uniquely designed rotor and stator V-Pump to replace conventional electric sub- mersible pump (ESP) centrifugal systems in wells with large amounts of sand and/or gas. The company's focus is on multiphase conditions in unconventional wells where use of the V-Pump is designed to lead to fewer well interventions, lon- ger run times, broader operating range and greater Tenaris will open its new sucker rods manufacturing facility in Conroe, Texas, in July.
