Amazon Filters designed and produced the filter housing for the Gulf of Mexico order at its Camberley, Surrey, manufacturing centre.

The UK’s Amazon Filters has despatched a bespoke filter housing containing four large-format high-flow filters to a floating deepwater rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

The order was secured from industry services provider Cameron International, working for US energy giant Chevron at its Jack and St Malo fields.

The 40-inch-long, six-inch-diameter SupaPleat FFC filters will be used to filter the CIP (clean in place) fluid that regenerates and keeps sulphate removal membranes working correctly.

The rig, located 280 miles south of New Orleans, stands in 7000 ft of seawater, with a well depth of 26 000 ft, and has a daily production capacity of 170 000 barrels of oil and 42 million cubic feet of natural gas.

“Delivering this contract successfully is a further demonstration of our ‘quick and able’ market proposition, in other words the capacity to support customers across the world working in critical applications such as oil and gas production,” said Amazon Filters managing director Neil Pizzey. “With Covid-19 impacting directly on the oil and gas markets, finding cost-effective and reliable solutions has never been more important for producers.”
