Recovering all the oil?

Produced water that has been processed through a heater treater, free water knockout, gun barrel, etc. can still contain small amounts of residual oil in the range of 0.50 to 2.0% (even though you can’t see it).

Dominion Energy Services represents a patented oil/water separation unit produced by Separation Solutions that is extremely efficient at removing that residual oil from the water phase.

The Separation Solutions unit itself has no moving parts and can be automated to fit your system requirements. Applications can include:

  • Production Batteries
  • Frac Flowback Pits
  • Disposal Wells
  • Oil Removal Prior to Chemical Treatment for Reuse

The value of capturing the residual oil can add up quickly. As an example, here is what a 12,000 BPD unit can generate in terms of oil revenue at varying levels of residual oil content:

Produced Water Flow Rate 12,000 12,000 12,000 12,000
Residual Oil Content in the Water (%) 0.25 0.50 .75 1.00
Oil Captured from the Water (BPD) 30 60 90 120
Oil Value (after Royalty - $/BBL) $75 $75 $75 $75
Net Annual Value of the Oil $821,250 $1,642,500 $2,463,750 $3,285,000
