Aker Solutions has developed a range of compact separation technologies which meet the need for building smaller, lighter assets and for easy installation into existing processing facilities.
All of our compact technologies are field proven and available today!
In addition many of our technologies are qualified for subsea use where deployment minimum weight and ease of maintenance are key design priorities. Our compact technologies reduce the size of and/or increase the performance of conventional, full size equipment.
Our compact technologies are ideal for debottlenecking existing facilities where a requirement exists to increase through put, yet space is restricted. Modular design also provides greater flexibility over equipment location. In addition our compact systems are highly resistant to the induced motion associated with floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) and often have a wider operational window than a conventional system.
Aker Solutions' compact systems are easier to maintain with most internals being easily removable. This minimises downtime and allows easy modification to accommodate changes in the prevailing process conditions.
Conventional versus compact
A typical crude oil separation system which uses our compact technology will provide
- 25 percent space saving
- 30 percent weight saving
Furthermore all of our compact technologies are field proven and available today!
Compact electrostatic coalescer (CEC™)
CEC™ significantly improves coalescence efficiency of an existing separator, thus making process more effective, compact and easier to maintain.
Compact cyclonic separator (CySep™)
CySep™ is a compact, modular cyclonic separation system that consists of several cyclonic separation components which enable bulk removal of water from well streams. In addition, CySep™ can also perform full three phase separation.
Compact cyclonic degasser (G Sep CCD™)
G-Sep CCD™ is a compact cyclonic two-phase separator that provides gas/liquid separation and gas scrubbing in a single, integrated unit.
