Ecologically compatible solutionFOR THE SEPARATION OF CRUDE OIL FROM WATER
Almost all of the world’s oil wells produce an emulsion of oil and water which has to be split up by using so-called demulsifiers. The latest formulations of PHASETREAT® demulsifiers are much more efficient at separating water from oil than conventional chemistry; not only this, they are highly biodegradable and result in a much cleaner produced water quality after separation.
ChallengeEFFICIENT AND SAFE PRODUCTION OF HEAVY OIL – PHASETREAT® DEMULSIFIERS MEET AND EXCEED THE CHALLENGESThe tendency of an emulsion to separate spontaneously into its oil and water components is rather low. Heavy oil reservoirs that are becoming increasingly important are especially challenging to dehydrate and extract the unwanted water.
Highly effective separation of crude oil from waterDemulsifiers from the PHASETREAT® family speed up the lengthy separation process. These surfactant molecules are added in a separator vessel to the fluid mixture, facilitating the coalescence of all water droplets and separating them from the oil.
