Technical Papers for Facilities Professionals
The authors of this paper propose a novel approach to data-driven modeling for transient production of oil wells.
This paper highlights solids-management technologies that are currently available and still in use topside (some of which are potentially outdated).
A system that could help turn stranded-gas fields into producing projects has moved closer to reality, aided by the growing focus on reductions in carbon emissions.
The paper presents a system for separation of water in downhole horizontal wells in which the water produced from the well is not lifted to the surface but reinjected into the reservoir.
An experimental study of a shroud-type downhole separator for a pumped horizontal or deviated well is presented in this study.
A Reassessment of the Role of Colloidal Iron in Produced Water From Shale Operations—A Review of Field Data and Literature (Part B)
This paper is the second of a two-part series. It covers facilities problems caused by iron, injectivity problems caused by iron, and the mitigation of colloidal iron-related problems.
A Reassessment of the Role of Colloidal Iron in Produced Water From Shale Operations—A Review of Field Data and Literature (Part A)
A review of the properties of iron compounds and their impact in shale produced water treatment with an emphasis on their colloidal forms. A wide range of problems is associated with these compounds in produced water including emulsion stabilization, oil-coated solids, pad formation in separators, pipeline solids, and plugging of water disposal formations.
The Savvy Separator: Oil/Water Separation and Gas Processing Facilities—Impact of Process Flow Conditions on Level Measurements
This 17th article in the Savvy Separator Series addresses how process flow conditions can lead to incorrect or misinterpreted level readings. Poor process vessel design is often exacerbated by miscalibrated instrumentation, leading to suboptimal operation and poor efficiency of the separator. In some cases, the location of the instrumentation can also lead to erroneou…
