The contract, which is to provide four annular injection mixers (AIM) for a gathering and separation plant, was signed earlier last month and will be completed and delivered by August this year.
An enhanced, compact version of ProSep’s proprietary AIM mixer will be supplied to the client. This modification will enhance the mixing efficiency of wash water being injected upstream of the crude desalters in the desalting trains at low differential pressure.
The enhanced AIM and its innovative two cone design were created as an alternative to the conventional injection “T” method for improved desalting performance for injection both water and demulsifier chemical.
Raul Gonzalo (pictured), ProSep’s Middle East Sales and Service Manager, said: “ProSep has been successfully delivering our proprietary technology for this Middle East based client for over 12 years and we are delighted to provide a bespoke solution, which was specifically designed to meet the client’s particular requirements.
“Dehydration and desalting of crude oil is a critical stage of processing crude oil, and ProSep’s first in class mixers are proven to enhance wash water injection efficiency during the dehydration process, reduce wash water injection volumes by 15-40%, and improve oil-water separation when compared to traditional mixing technologies.”
