This discussion will address differences in flow back and produced water quality and compare with requirements for hydraulic fracturing formulations.

 
 

New SPE Web Event: Treatment Options for Reuse of Frac Flowback and Produced Water from Shales, 19 September

Join Tor Palmgren for discussions on differences in flow back and produced water quality, requirements for hydraulic fracturing formulations, various recycling methods, and more.

 

Attend SPE Web Event on Level Control Detection Selection by Roar Fjøsne—Wednesday, 3 April

Subsea Processing in general requires maintenance free reliable high-end instrumentation. In a subsea multi-phase separator, the operators control the process by monitoring the oil and water interface levels as well as the emulsion layer and sedimentation of sand using a nucleonic density profiler. In addition to having the monitoring features, subsea instrumentation needs to go through comprehensive qualification tests in order to run continuously and without maintenance. The design life is 20 years.
