Tech Report: Torrential Unit Achieved 500% More Throughput Over Predicted Performance with No Signs of Packoff

High-flow filtration unit averages 27 bbl/min for a displacement operation processing brine with more than 70 NTU and 1% solids

Torrential Unit Achieved 500% More Throughput Over Predicted Performance with No Signs of Packoff

Publication Date: 05/15/2018

During displacements, the current filtration unit on the drillship had a throughput too small and footprint too large for efficient deepwater operations and required frequent effort to deal with packoff. A key customer desired a new filtration unit that would increase the flow rate and throughput, minimize HSE risks, and reduce equipment footprint. M-I SWACO, a Schlumberger company, proposed installing a Torrential high-flow filtration unit on the drillship in the Gulf of Mexico.
