Many mature oil and gas fields face production of excessive water cuts, sometimes reaching 90% or above thereby causing bottlenecks in the production process and pipelines.
Wx® is a compact two-stage oil from water separator, using a combination of proprietary compact cyclonic chambers based around Caltec’s I-SEP® technology. The internals of Wx® encourage the fluid to rotate, enhancing gravitational forces resulting in fluids of different density to separate. It can achieve an oil-in-water separation between 500-2000ppm dependent on process conditions, and is tolerant to gas up to around 15% inlet GVF.
Its main benefit, compared to conventional gravity separators, is the significant reduction in footprint and weight.
