Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR SEPARATING WATER FROM OIL
(FR) SEPARATEUR EAU-PETROLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An oil/water separation arrangement comprising a compact electrostatic coalesces (CEC) (11) having an inlet (12) for receiving a well production stream including, under normal operating conditions, an oil continuous phase containing water droplets, a processing chamber in which the stream passes through an electrical field between charged electrodes which promotes coalescence of the water droplets, and an outlet (13) for well production stream which has been subjected to electrostatic coalescence, the oil/water separation arrangement further including a compact in-line oil/water separator (CILOWS) (14) receiving production stream from the outlet (13) of said CEC, said CILOWS having a separation vessel diameter D in the range d to 3d, where d is in the range 0.08 metres (3 inches) to 1.07 metres (42 inches), and a length of at least 10D.
(FR)Cette invention concerne une installation de séparation eau-pétrole comprenant: un coalescer électrostatique compact (CEC) (11) doté d'une entrée (12) pour la réception d'un flux de production qui contient, en conditions de fonctionnement normales, une phase huileuse continue renfermant des gouttelettes d'eau; une chambre de traitement dans laquelle le flux traverse, entre des électrodes chargées, un champ électrique qui favorise la coalescence des gouttelettes d'eau ; et une sortie (13) pour le flux de production qui a été soumis à une coalescence électrostatique. L'installation de séparation eau-pétrole comprend en outre un séparateur eau-pétrole compact en ligne (CILOWS) (14) recevant le flux de production du CEC. Le séparateur présente un diamètre de récipient de séparation D compris entre d et 3d, d étant compris entre 0,08 mètre (3 pouces) et 1,07 mètre (42 pouces ), et une longueur d'au moins 10D.
