The future of oil production looks different.

Separation should, too.

A versatile separation system for land, offshore, topside and subsea.

The Dual Pipe Separator (DPS) introduces new technology that makes oil separation more efficient. By removing and treating water locally, all transport from the well or field is for oil and gas only. This will reduce costs and increase revenues, by enabling increased oil recovery and accelerated production. This business effect will be especially significant subsea, where the DPS opens up for new production tie-ins on existing infrastructure.

We focus on enabling IOR and accelerated production through;

Increased Oil Recovery
• We remove the water at the seabed and thus reduce the back pressure on the reservoir resulting in improved production

Accelerated Production
• We remove the water from the subsea infrastructure and thus we enable faster start-up of new wells and fields
• We enable production testing without production losses and with increased allocation accuracy

Sustainable development approach
• Smaller lighter with less steel and manufacturing and simpler installation process
• Lower power consumption to get the oil and gas to surface

You can adjust to the different phases of the life of an oil field. You can add, or remove modules to handle the different situations, like the build-up phase or decline phase. This is an major advantage.

Pump-free subsea boosting. The removal of produced water at the seabed has similar effect to a subsea booster pump with increasing effect as a function of increased water depth and water cut. The DPS could in some cases effectively boost production by 25-30 %, and increase asset valuation by as much as 100 % in the most extreme cases.
