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…
Richard Arntzen, senior process engineer and principal technical expert with Shell, will be presenting an SPE Separations Technology Technical Section Webinar on 22 April.
The complete paper presents a rigorous and consistent method to convert daily separator rates into stock-tank volumes. Recommendations for developing field-specific shrinkage correlations using field test data also are proposed.
