Title (EN) ULTRASONIC SEPARATION OF A PRODUCTION STREAM
(FR) SÉPARATION ULTRASONORE D’UN FLUX DE PRODUCTION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Ultrasonic separation to separate constituents (oil, water, solids, entrained and dissolved gases) of a stream of a production fluid is described. Use of ultrasonic separation at one or more points in a production stream may allow elimination of tank venting and/or reduction in energy employed for thermal separation, such as in a heater treater. In addition, ultrasonic separation of crude oil or other hydrocarbon production streams may provide demulsification of crudes with reduced or minimal addition of chemicals.
(FR)La présente invention concerne la séparation ultrasonore de constituants (pétrole, eau, matières solides, gaz entraînés et dissous) d’un flux d’un fluide de production. L’utilisation d’une séparation ultrasonore à un ou plusieurs points dans un flux de production peut permettre l’élimination d’une aération du réservoir et/ou la réduction de l’énergie utilisée pour la séparation thermique, par exemple dans une unité de traitement thermique. En outre, la séparation ultrasonore de pétrole brut ou d’autres flux de production d’hydrocarbures peut assurer la désémulsification de produits bruts avec un ajout réduit ou minimal de produits chimiques.
