Phase Separator on Oil and Gas Facilities

{0 Comments}

Fluids outputted by the wellhead are made of form many different compounds of hydrocarbon and each compound has its own physical characteristic. The fluids flow from high temperature and high pressure reservoir surface facilities so its temperature and pressure will decrease. Gases from the well stream or evolved in liquid will flow in high speed …

Three Phase Vertical Separators Sizing

As with vertical two-phase separators, a minimum diameter must be  maintained to assure adequate gas capacity. In addition, vertical threephase  separators must maintain a minimum diameter to allow the 500 micron water droplets to settle. The height of the three-phase separator is  determined from retention time considerations. Gas Capacity The gas capacity constraints provide the …

Three Phase Horizontal Separator Sizing

For sizing a horizontal three-phase separator it is necessary to specify a vessel diameter and a seam-to-seam vessel length. The gas capacity and retention time considerations establish certain acceptable combinations of diameter and length. The need to settle 500-micron water droplets from the oil establishes a maximum diameter. Gas Capacity The gas capacity constraints provide …
