• Wellhead Desanding


    Those operating installed processing facilities often find that the production of sand from oil and gas wells proves difficult for effective operation at the wellhead. Whether caused by unconsolidated reservoirs, high production rates or the failure of gravel packs and other sand control measures, the effects can be hugely damaging to chokes, flow lines, control valves, pumps and other equipment.

With the danger of incurring high environmental discharge costs, or reduced capacity due to lower residence time or partial blockages of pipelines, it is essential that your company have the systems in place to reduce the threat of sand from oil and gas wells.

Previous measures taken to reduce the problems caused by sand from oil and gas include the reduction of oil and gas production rates to reduce the amount of sand produced, the installation of gravel packing of screens, or increased maintenance, which can lead to a reduction in plant availability.

Alderley Process Technologies is able to supply online desanding hydrocyclone packages that remove solids from multi-phase well fluids – including gas, water and oil – all of which can be done at the wellhead or at the well manifold. Alderley’s coded sand removal packages are available at design pressures of >15,000psi. They can be designed for offshore and onshore operations, and for both manual and fully automated operations.
