Separator Solutions

Improve production data, decrease operating costs, and reduce your HSE risk from resevoir to point-of-sale.

Gain Greater Control with More Reliable Information

In your line of work, you have to do more with less, faster. Well production dynamics are in flux. You're missing timely production data that could give you a clear picture of reservoir performance—or allow you to correct well production problems. Sending people into the field further escalates HSE risks. With Emerson’s separator solutions, you’ll have the right measurements, better control, more effective maintenance, and a clear view of the whole picture—from reservoir to point-of-sale.

Solution In Action

Process Monitoring & Data Management

Process control devices — such as remote operations controllers linked to a SCADA system — keep your separators working efficiently while relaying up-to-date data about reservoir and well dynamics. Properly tuned devices and appropriate control logic help to keep your separator online and operating efficiently as production rates change. At the same time, process and production data play central roles in improving HSE monitoring and regulatory compliance. 

Level Measurement & Control

Accurate level measurement ensures precise regulation of liquid volumes encouraging proper phase separation and outflow control. With the right choice of Emerson level controllers, level transmitters, and dump valves, you'll be able to keep processing costs down while maintaining hydrocarbon quality and reducing lost production.

Pressure Monitoring & Control

Regulators or back pressure control valves keep separator pressure in the best range for optimal production and separation efficiency. At the same time, pressure relief valves provide protection by venting excess pressure, defusing dangerous conditions. With Emerson's pressure transmitters, regulators, control valves and monitoring devices, you'll have the ability to optimize production while improving safety and environmental regulatory compliance.

Flow Metering

Flow meters at gas, water, and oil outlets measure net production while helping you characterize reservoir performance. On individual outlets, they can also flag gas and liquid contamination resulting from inefficient separation. With Emerson's accurate, versatile flow metering technologies, you can properly allocate revenue, reduce reprocessing, and optimize recovery throughout a reservoir's lifetime.

Gas Outlet

At your gas outlets, effective metering and pressure control are critical for improving production management. With appropriate, properly sized flow meters, you'll be able to detect liquid carryover while accurately measuring gas production for precise allocation accounting. Reliable and accurate back pressure control devices at the gas outlet allow you to maintain a stable internal pressure reducing allocation measurement problems and keeping liquid carryover to a minimum.

Water Outlet

Obtain accurate water production measurement with precise level control and flow meters that require minimal maintenance. Emerson provides a wide range of level technologies including traditional displacers as well as advanced guided wave radar technologies unaffected by product density changes. Flow meter diagnostics can be used to detect gas carry-under and oil in water contamination allowing for improved control and verification of separator performance.

Oil Outlet

Accurate oil production measurement provides insight into well performance and often times can be used for allocation of royalties. Precise level control and flow meters that require minimal maintenance enable accurate measurement. Emerson provides a wide range of level technologies including traditional displacers as well as advanced guided wave radar technologies unaffected by product density changes. Flow meter diagnostics can be used to detect gas carry-under and water in oil contamination allowing for improved control and verification of separator performance.
