Oil & Gas Mid-/Downstream

"The effective use of our world’s oil and gas deposits represents one of the greatest challenges of our time. In particular, our NEMO®, NOTOS® and TORNADO® pump systems offer new opportunities to leverage dwindling oil resources and raise production rates of existing oil fields. Besides lower quality crude oils and high viscous oils also multiphase fluids can be produced economically and efficiently.“

Pumps for the Oil Industry

NETZSCH pumps for the oil industry are characterized by robust and reliable design. Constructions and materials are adapted to the requirements. Together with the customer's requirements are specified in the planning phase and the optimal pump is selected. The use of innovative pump technologies from NETZSCH offers safe and reliable production processes at low life-cycle costs. On this there is a large range of products available from which you can select the appropriate each pump system for on- and offshore, up-, mid- and downstream area.

Success Stories

Constant delivery rate regardless of the product viscosity:
NEMO® progressing cavity pumps in a remote oilfield

The transfer of crude oil always presents new challenges and so it was on an oilfield in the Tatarstan region of Russia. Crude oil, containing up to three percent sand, is conveyed there in a 24-hour operation...more

NOTOS® multi screw pumps proof their strength

When pumps are used on ships and in ports, the technology must meet special requirements: this means the pumps should not only cope with a really wide variety of fluids, but should also be as space-saving, maintenance-free and easy to handle as possible. More

Screw pumps strip out even highly viscous media

As containers and temporary storage, tanks to entire tank farms are the backbone of many industries, in particular in the oil and fuel sector. But these types of media are often highly viscous, making it difficult to empty or ‘strip’ all the medium out of the tanks. Residual product is normally left behind, significantly reducing the useful volume of the tank. More and more companies in these sectors are now using NOTOS® screw pumps from NETZSCH Pumpen & Systeme GmbH to maximise the profitability of their tanks. More...

Vertical Sump Pump Provided for Oil Storage Application

When a major energy pipeline company looked to streamline their pumping system for their oil storage tanks, they called on NETZSCH to design and build customized vertical cavity sump pumps for lower maintenance and operational efficiencies. More


Downstream – NEMO® Water-Injection Pump

Crude oil deposits are often discovered in spongy rock. To extract it, fluids must be pumped into the earth under high pressures. NEMO® Water-Injection Pumps are particularly well-suited for this task, since their capacity can be changed in accordance with rotation speed.

NEMO® BT Immersible Pump

NEMO® Immersible Pumps are used for emptying barrels, tanks, and pits. They are also used where space is limited and the danger of cavitation may be present. In addition, these pumps are suitable for emptying barrels containing materials hazardous to water and the environment.

Downstream – NEMO® Transfer Pumps

Great distances must often be covered in order to reach ports or refineries. Pump systems that can maintain a high conveying pressure at the lowest possible pulsation are required for such applications.

NEMO® SY Industrial Construction in Bearing Block Design with Free Shaft Extension

The NEMO® SY Progressing Cavity Pump is used for demanding applications in every branch of industry around the globe. In bearing block design with free shaft extension, this pump can be run with any type of drive, such as servo motors, diesel motors or hydraulic drives.

Downstream – NEMO® Multiphase Pumps

Only very seldom does crude oil arrive at the surface in pure form. Usually it is mixed with water, sand and gas. Conventional pumps require that the gas first be separated from the crude oil. With NETZSCH NEMO® Multiphase Pumps, this is not an issue. NEMO® Multiphase Pumps can be used for crude oil with a gas content of up to 100%.


NEMO® BY Progressing Cavity Pumps can be used in any area of industry where a great variety of different substances must be pumped or very precisely dosed.

TORNADO® Rotary Lobe Pump – special design for the petroleum industry

NETZSCH TORNADO® Rotary Lobe Pumps are used in the petroleum industry for the continuous, pressure-stable, gentle and low-pulsation conveyance of crude oil. The TORNADO® is particularly well suited for running high capacities at medium pressures.
