APPLICATIONS

Produced Water Treatment From Siemens Produced Water Treatment From Siemens

Produced water is generated in the process of lifting oil and gas from water-bearing formations–typically sea or lake beds. As oil and gas is lifted to the surface, water is brought along with it. This water must be treated prior to discharge or re-injection.

Water Treatment for Injection/Re-injection Water Treatment for Injection/Re-injection

Meeting water quality specifications for injection or reinjection is essential for protecting the permeability of a reservoir.

Process and Wastewater Treatment Process and Wastewater Treatment

The treatment of process water can have a substantial and serious impact on a facility’s bottom line results in the short term as well as over the life of the equipment.

Ethylene and Refinery Spent Caustic Ethylene and Refinery Spent Caustic

In the last 10 years, we have successfully installed over two dozen spent caustic wet oxidation systems, with capacities varying from 0.5 to 18.5 m3/h (2 to 81 gpm). Our systems are the industry standard and are included in many of the new world-scale ethylene plants.

    3 Dirty Little Secrets About Coriolis Flowmeters

    Ever since Coriolis flow measurement technology achieved mainstream appeal, industry has been fervently striving to take advantage of its benefits. And while Coriolis is clearly a highly advantageous solution for many crucial flow measurement applications, it is not without flaw.

    From The 1970s To Today – 4 Key Advances In Coriolis Flow Measurement

    Since the first Coriolis flow sensors were introduced to the marketplace in the 1970s, the technology has evolved considerably. As the installed base for Coriolis grew, the sensors were being called upon to deliver data in environments with increasing levels of complexity. This meant that Coriolis sensors had to adapt and conform to a dizzying array of ever-changing installation requirements, process conditions, communication formats, and configuration parameters. The following article highlights four key advances in Coriolis flow measurement’s journey from the 1970s to today.

    2 Applications That Triggered The Rise Of Coriolis Flow Measurement

    Coriolis measurement has been adopted as a default technology in many application scenarios due to its high accuracy and immunity to process variables (temperature, pressure and flow profile). However, Coriolis wasn't always widely accepted. Two applications, in particular, helped what was once a nascent flow measurement technology gain a foothold in the marketplace.

    Finding The Right Solution For Bubble Generation

    It may not be immediately apparent just how crucial bubbles are to oil and gas operations. They play a critical role in a process known as dissolved gas flotation (DGF), which is imperative for removing contaminants. And not all bubbles are created the same.

  • Horizontal Drilling With Hydraulic Fracturing Of Gas Wells
    Horizontal Drilling With Hydraulic Fracturing Of Gas Wells

    Horizontal drilling started back in 1929 and hydraulic fracking began in 1949. However, it was not until 2003 that the horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracking processes were combined to extract gas from the Barnett Shale in north Texas. Since then, gas drilling has increased by 14 times in the United States. Given the vast shale formations throughout the United States, drilling will continue to increase for several more years.
