Separation Skid Package

Separation modular process skids are prefabricated and self-contained units designed for separating multiple phases or components from process streams in various industries, such as oil and gas, petrochemical, and chemical processing. These skids integrate various separation technologies into a compact and modular package, offering flexibility, ease of installation, and efficient separation processes.

➣  Separation modular process skids typically include the following key components:

➣  Separation vessels: Depending on the application, different types of separation vessels may be incorporated, such as:

➣ Two-phase or three-phase separators for separating gas, oil/condensate, and water

➣  Filter separators for removing solid particles or liquid droplets

Coalescers or separators for breaking emulsions and separating immiscible liquids

Project – Three Phase Separator Skid Location - Germany

A three-phase separator skid is a compact and modular processing unit designed to separate a multiphase fluid stream (typically a well stream or production stream) into its gas, liquid hydrocarbon (oil or condensate), and water components. This separation process is crucial in oil and gas production operations, as it enables the efficient handling and processing of each phase separately.

The three-phase separator skid typically consists of the following main components:

Separator vessel: The primary component of the skid is the separator vessel, which is a horizontally or vertically oriented pressure vessel. This vessel is designed to separate the incoming multiphase fluid stream into its gas, liquid hydrocarbon, and water phases based on the differences in their densities and gravitational forces.

Inlet devices: The separator skid includes inlet devices, such as a choke valve or a flow control valve, to regulate the flow of the incoming multiphase fluid stream into the separator vessel.

Mist extractor: A mist extractor, often in the form of a specialized demisting pad or vane pack, is installed inside the separator vessel to remove any entrained liquid droplets from the gas phase, ensuring a cleaner gas stream.

Level control system: A level control system, typically consisting of level sensors and control valves, is employed to maintain the desired liquid levels within the separator vessel for optimal separation performance.

Outlet connections: The separator skid has separate outlet connections or nozzles for the gas, liquid hydrocarbon, and water phases, allowing each phase to be directed to its respective downstream processing or handling facility.

Instrumentation and controls: The skid is equipped with various instrumentation, such as pressure gauges, temperature sensors, and flow meters, as well as a control system to monitor and regulate the separation process.

Skid structure: The entire assembly is mounted on a skid or base, which provides a compact and transportable solution for easy installation and relocation.

Three-phase separator skids are widely used in upstream oil and gas operations, particularly in offshore platforms, onshore production facilities, and well-testing operations. They play a crucial role in separating the well stream into its components, enabling efficient handling, transportation, and further processing of each phase according to the specific requirements of the production facility. These skids offer the advantages of modular design, compact footprint, and ease of installation, making them a versatile and cost-effective solution for various oil and gas production scenarios.

Separation modular process skids are widely used in various applications, including: Oil and gas production facilities for separating well streams into gas, oil/condensate, and water. Natural gas processing plants for separating natural gas from liquids and removing contaminants.

Refinery and petrochemical processes for separating product streams or removing impurities.

Chemical processing plants for separating reactants, products, and byproducts. Industrial wastewater treatment for separating oils, solids, and other contaminants.

The specific configuration and components of a separation modular process skid are tailored to the specific application, process conditions, and separation requirements. Proper selection, sizing, and integration of the skid components are crucial for achieving efficient and reliable separation performance.
