Exterran Corp., a global systems and process company offering solutions in the oil, gas, water and power markets, has launched its new Separon produced water technology suite to provide operators with a complete water and solids management solution globally on Aug. 6.
Exterran’s complete suite of integrated technologies now includes desanders, deoilers, multiphase hydrocyclones and microbubble flotation technology for oil and solids removal. It offers onshore and offshore operators a ready-to-use, turnkey package of solutions to treat up to 750,000 barrels per day of produced water.
The Separon product portfolio includes a unique solids removal and transport system, which enables operators to remove and transport solids from production fluids. This cost-effective solution mitigates multiple issues downstream including instrument failure, erosion, corrosion, and pump damage, all of which reduce vessel tank maintenance.
Separon products will be available through operations and maintenance contracts, pilot programs, rental and purchase options. The contract operations and maintenance model requires no capex investment and is available with remote monitoring.
“With the launch of Separon, we now offer a more comprehensive produced water technology portfolio. Over the past two decades our in-house team has been dedicated to studying, understanding and developing the most efficient and cost-effective solutions for our customers,” Todd Kirk, director of water at Exterran, said.
Exterran offers operators a full range of primary, secondary and tertiary treatment solutions for removing oil, contaminants and suspended solids from produced water. To date, their equipment has treated over 5 billion barrels of water and recovered over 21 million barrels of oil worldwide.
