Mechanical equipments such as pumps, air compressors, etc. play an important role in the production, processing and transporting oil and gas since every single equipment, serves different functions. For oil and gas transportation system, pump is an essential mechanical device used to pump and transport the product. In order to promote technical features as well as high working efficiency, it is important to ensure that these devices always work the most efficiently in the best technical conditions. The application of modern scientific and technical advances to the maintenance and operation of mechanical equipment in general and pumps in particular will help to reduce the risks and bring economic benefits to the operators. This paper, therefore, presents results of the research on the application of artificial intelligence (AI) in diagnosing common failure of Condensate pums at Hai Thach - Moc Tinh field basing on analysis of field data which help to improve the efficiency of gas condensate transportation. The results helped to predict and warn early the possible failures to the Condensate pums at Hai Thach - Moc Tinh field. Results of the research can be applied to other equipment devices working in the same conditions during oil and gas production process in Vietnam.
