Remote Monitoring & Control
Real-time systems for produced water treatment
Automatically assure the lowest-possible oil-in-water discharges.
The EPCON Dual compact flotation unit (CFU) has a unique internal design that incorporates residual flotation gas in a secondary separation stage to increase oil-in-water (OIW) removal while fully degassing the clean water outlet. The compact, simple system achieves optimal water treatment in half the footprint of conventional technologies, saving rig space and streamlining operations—all with no moving parts.
Computational fluid dynamics simulation, onshore pilot testing, and offshore results verification guided and validated the design of the EPCON Dual CFU. A successful field trial was performed on a Statoil installation in the Norwegian waters of the North Sea. Posttreatment outlet oil concentration was measured at 10 ppm, down from pretreatment levels in excess of 25 ppm. The results also verified 27% better separation rates compared with conventional technologies.
Operator achieves water quality requirement needed to reuse produced water for maintaining reservoir pressure & production.
Removes oil from produced water using gas injection in a small, efficient footprint.
Innovative upstream technologies recognized for engineering excellence.
Field trial verifies separation with customizable system that increases oil removal efficiency in 50% smaller footprint.
