JPT: Fluids-Separation Technologies

High-quality oil and water separation is critical to the success of most upstream oil production facilities but often results in increased operational challenges and costs associated with the process. Baker Hughes’ TRETOLITE SNAP fluids-­separation technologies help operators overcome these challenges by achieving dry oil and clean water (Fig. 2). This generation of water clarifiers and demulsifiers exceeds current performance standards, including oil-in-water requirements and basic sediment and water key performance indicators, and enables a more-controlled water/oil interface. This allows steam-assisted-gravity-drainage operators to reduce equipment fouling and upsets as well as decrease slop oil generation and disposal, which results in less recycling and more production throughput. For conventional producers, the products can provide oil and water separation to meet water-discharge-­regulation requirements.
