3-Phase Separation: Identifying and Addressing Issues Before They Happen

Recorded On: 04/27/2016

Identification of conditions that impair 3 phase separation performance: gas quality, oil quality, or water quality and ways to address is critical in systems design and operation. Mitigation of these conditions is an integral part of the design phase of separations system to address potential separation challenges before they happen. Many of the mitigation can also be applied in later project life to address changing conditions in the field or re-purposing of the equipment. Flow unevenness, slugging, foaming, liquid carryover, or oil carry under, and solids handling and types of technologies to address them will be discussed with selected examples that illustrate the working principles in action.

This webinar is categorized under the Projects, Facilities, and Construction discipline.
