Pellerin Water Solutions (PWS), a subsidiary of Pellerin Energy Group (PEG) and a leading integrated service provider for the oil and gas industry, has designed and built a Horizontal Flotation Separator (HF-SEP) for Stone Energy Corporation.
Enhancing oil and produced water separation
The specifically designed HF-SEP with dissolved gas flotation (DGF) technologies will enhance the separation process of oil and produced water, which will maximise production and increase profitability. Stone Energy will incorporate the HF-SEP with its deepwater facility, Pompano, situated in the Gulf of Mexico.
"The Horizontal Flotation Separator is used in the treatment of produced water to meet regulatory standards for discharge,” said Ed Godeaux, General Manager, PWS. “It includes an atmospheric-designed flotation cell capable of treating 40 000 bpd of water."
Largest of its kind
“The Horizontal Flotation Separator is one of the largest of its kind in the Gulf of Mexico and was built to exceed Stone Energy’s produced water needs,” said Josh Pellerin, Chief Executive Officer and President, PEG. “With this technology, Pellerin Water Solutions has positioned itself to be the leader in the oil and gas industry for produced water needs.”
Pellerin Energy Group consists of four business units: Water Solutions; Energy Rentals; Health, Safety and Environment; and Chemical and Lubricants.
