The pump station at Kinder Morgan Canada’s (KMC) Kamloops facility has been in operation for 60+ years. In that time the four parallel pumps in the facility have each moved an estimated 1 billion barrels of crude oil, gasoline and diesel from the Sherwood Park area of Alberta and the oil fields of NE British Columbia to the west coast of Canada and into Washington State.

This paper describes the innovative project (see Figure 1 above) where the four existing multi-stage parallel pumps at the Kamloops facility were replaced with two single stage series pumps.

This paper assumes the reader has a working knowledge of pump hydraulics.

A detailed list of all acronyms used within this paper is located at the end of the document under the heading entitled “Nomenclature”.
