Topside debottlenecking to improve water handling capacity and manage severe slugging issues

The DPS was modelled topside at a field centre to manage severe slugging and improve the liquid handling capacity. The DPS System was designed to be skid based and loaded using the platform crane.

Challenge

Severe slugging periodically choked the production. The large slugs impacted the inlet separator causing increase in chemical injection and frequent poorer product quality

Solution

The DPS was modelled topside at a field centre to manage severe slugging and improve the liquid handling capacity. The DPS System was designed to be skid based and loaded using the platform crane.

Benefit

  • Increased product quality
  • More stable operation of gas compressor (less surges)
  • No chemicals required
  • Free treatment capacity in the inlet separator
  • Lifted on board with platform crane and easily installed and integrated in existing process areas
