Separating gas, oil, water and sand is critical to getting value out of what is produced from a well, and in reducing the environmental impact of produced water and solids during disposal. Left long enough, nearly everything will separate naturally by gravity. However space and weight allowances on offshore platforms are limited, so the process of separation needs to be enhanced. Stokes Law offers a model to explain how separation equipment works, and predicts which physical parameters are most influential in separation. The presentation will use mainly images to demonstrate the operation of gravity and enhanced gravity separators (including flotation and cyclonics).
