Production Facilities

121 result(s) found.

production facilities  After a well is completed, the produced fluids are separated into gas, oil and water. Special technology has been developed for separating these fluids, for overcoming associated problems such as corrosion, hydrates and emulsions, and for ensuring the quality of products piped to refineries and end-users. Terms in this discipline range from adsorption and BTU, to separator and vapor recovery unit. All have been reviewed by production facility experts, and many are supplemented with high-quality illustrations or photographs.
