The Trinidad region has long been a place of historical significance for the industry thanks to its shallow and easily accessible hydrocarbon reserves. Today, its importance lies in the fact that it is the largest producer of oil and gas in the Caribbean. With significant reservoirs and a growing focus on natural gas production to meet the demands of the Americas, the region is host to major global operators.

To meet growing demand, FourPhase is bringing its technology to the Americas. As a result, it has converted several state-of-the-art desander units to comply with regional standards for use across the region. One of these desanders was recently deployed to Trinidad on the first ever desander operation in the region. The project successfully removed considerable amounts of solids with a separation efficiency of more than 99.5% from a production well.
