    Separation and Primary Produced Water Treatment

    With a variety of technologies to support upstream sand removal, separators and collection vessels to maximise your hydrocarbon recovery, and deoiling hydrocyclones to cleanse your produced water at the primary stage, we are the ideal partner for your separation and water treatment endeavours.

Maximising recovery and process efficiency, or optimising produced water treatment - whatever your objective, we have the right solution for you

The primary produced water treatment and separation packages that we design and build involve many different elements.

They can include upstream sand removal using solid/liquid hydrocyclones at wellhead conditions, multi-phase separators and collection vessels, and further solid/liquid and liquid/liquid hydrocyclones. We have many technologies and vast experience in all types of produced water treatment. Contact us to discuss your specific requirements.  

2- and 3-Phase Separators

For the separation of gas/liquid or gas/oil/liquid, our 2- and 3-phase separators are designed and built to the latest international standards.

Primary Produced Water treatment – Sand Fluidisation

Sand fluidisation and mobilisation

To support efficient separation, we can provide proven sand jetting technologies for the effortless management of solids that have accumulated within the separation vessel – ensuring your separation is kept at its optimum effectiveness.  

Sand Cleaning

Efficient removal of any oil remaining in the separated sand is essential for both your organisation’s bottom line and environmental credentials. It is only after effective, dedicated treatment that the sand is ready for safe disposal. We can design and deliver sand cleaning systems to your company’s needs and relevant regulatory requirements.

Desanding Hydrocyclones

Our desanding hydrocyclone systems range from a 1″ diameter hydrocyclone for high efficiency in solids clarification to a 3″ diameter hydrocyclone for larger solids, high throughput and minimal pressure drop. All of our desanding hydrocyclones are able to operate in high pressure, highly erosive wellhead conditions, and can be incorporated into specialist applications such as under-balanced drilling. Desanding hydrocyclones can be supplied as separate items or as part of a complete produced water treatment package, giving your project the best efficiency in the most compact vessel.

Deoiling Hydrocyclones

Our AP20 liquid/liquid or deoiling hydrocyclone demonstrates proven, market leading operational performance. The compact nature of the AP20 deoiling hydrocyclone makes it a high efficiency, high online turndown and high erosion resistance solution that is also extremely cost effective. The AP20 can be used in new projects or retrofitted into existing systems, where it can be fixed to horizontal or vertical vessels without the need for additional hot work or removal of the vessel, making this system by far the most economical. Whether your organisation requires a new produced water treatment solution that incorporates our market leading deoiling hydrocyclone, or you seek to improve current systems’ performance, the AP20 deoiling hydrocyclone poses the perfect solution.  

We are familiar with a wide range of technologies and have acquired vast experience in all types of produced water treatment.  Contact us to discuss your specific requirements further.
