Example text

If the water is to be injected into a disposal well, facilities may be required to filter solid particles from it. Water treating can be done in horizontal or vertical skimmer vessels, which look very much like separators. Water treating can also be done in one of the many proprietary designs discussed in this text such as upflow or downflow CPIs (see Figure 1-11), flotation units (see Figure 1-12), cross-flow coalescers/separators, and hydrocyclones. Figure 1-9. A gunbarrel tank for treating oil.

In cold weather areas it is sometimes necessary to insulate the vessels and pipe and house all controls in a building attached to the vessel. In shallow water, facilities can be installed on several different platforms connected by bridges (see Figure 1-36). In deeper water it may be necessary to install all the facilities and the wells on the same platform, as in Figure 1-37. Sometimes, in cold weather areas, the facilities must be enclosed as shown in Figure 1-38. Facilities have been installed on semi-submersible floating structures, tension leg platforms, tankers (see Figure 1-39) and converted jack-up drilling rigs (see Figure 1-40).

Incremental liquid recovery versus number of separator stages. Table 2-2 Stage Separation Guidelines Initial Separator Pressure (kPa) (PSIG) Number of Stages1 170–860 860–2100 2100–3400 3400–4800 25–125 125–300 300–500 500–700 1 1–2 2 2–32 1 2 Does not include stock tank. At flow rates exceeding 650 m3 /hr (100,000 BPD), more stages may be justified. separation is used to maximize liquid production and minimize compressor horsepower. Often, as in our example flowsheet, stage separation is used because different wells producing to the facility have different flowing tubing pressures.
