Every platform has to recover as much oil as possible, as efficiently as possible. In order to make improvements you need to understand how well the current system is working. Advanced Sensors manufactures a dual-probe system (EX-100P2) that allows simultaneous measurement of oil concentrations at the inlet and outlet of any separator, providing continuous on-line information about the effectiveness of your separators.
The effectiveness of each different technology is impacted by the makeup of the particles in the water. Use of a microscopy analyzer, provides the ppm level and size distribution of solids, oil and gas in the water, ensuring that you have the right information to optimise your separator systems.
For example, with the EX-400M, you could set an alarm to trigger if the system shows a high concentration of solid particles over a given size, which could then enable a divert valve to route the produced water through a sand filter.
