ProSep Awarded Multi-Million NOK Contract For Johan Castberg Field Development Project

Mixing TechnologyProSep, an industry-leading technology and service provider for integrated process solutions, announced today it will supply three (3) ProSalt™ units to Statoil Petroleum (Statoil) for the Johan Castberg field development project, located on the Norwegian continental shelf in the Barents Sea.

The ProSalt technology, which utilizes ProSep’s Multiphase Adjustable eXtreme mixer with injection (MAX+), is used for crude oil and wash water mixing upstream of the desalting process. The mixer provides high efficiency (> 90%) mixing of wash water and crude to meet the required outlet specification for crude export. The MAX+ mixer employs a unique mixing cylinder which creates a homogeneous shear force across the cross-sectional area of the crude process flow. This evenly distributed shear force generates a tight water droplet distribution and turbulent mixing conditions within the cylinder. These actions thus maximize the mass transfer area of salt in the crude to the wash water, all done with a relatively low dP (~0.3 bar) throughout the wide range of flow conditions. Chemicals, such as demuslfiers, can be injected in the mixer alongside the wash water, which leads to their more efficient use in the process stream. Additionally, the lower shear stresses applied to the oil and water mixture leads to less emulsion tendencies overall. The ProSalt technology with MAX+ mixers will provide Statoil with efficient usage of wash water and chemicals, while also providing an opportunity to reduce injection volumes of both in comparison to conventional mixing technologies.

“After an extensive evaluation process, it is extremely rewarding to be recognized by Statoil as a leading technology provider and preferred supplier of innovative process optimization equipment at the highest Quality, Health, Safety, and Environment (QHSE) standards,” said Jacek Kacperski, Sales Manager, ProSep Europe. “We are honored to be considered a trusted partner in such a technologically demanding project.”

The Johan Castberg project was notably the biggest offshore oil and gas development in 2017, with an estimated cost of approximately NOK 49 billion. The scope of work consists of a production vessel, 30 wells, 10 subsea templates and two satellite structures with the capacity to recover an estimated 450 – 650 million barrels of oil equivalent. The project is anticipated to begin in 2022.

Prosep to Transform Global Oil and Gas Industry with Major Milestone Achievement for Osorb Media

August 1, 2017 (HOUSTON) – ProSep, the industry-leading technology and service provider for integrated process solutions, today announced a major milestone achievement for one of its proprietary produced water treatments, Osorb Media, a revolutionary, re-generable, modified organo-silica used for the polishing oilfield water and gas streams. ProSep has secured a multi-million dollar order for this water treatment system, which is a momentous breakthrough for this technology that has been in a developmental phase for the past seven years.

“Very few technologies have been commercially accepted in the Oil & Gas industry in such a short time from discovery to first commercial sale, specifically ones that are in the tertiary and/or polishing treatment stage,” said Mahesh Konduru, CEO at ProSep. “We believe that the Osorb technology is truly transformational and the global oil and gas industry will have an opportunity to see this technology in action.”

Prosep’s Osorb Media utilizes a 5000-barrels of water per day (BWPD) system that is designed to reduce Benzene, Toluene, Ethyl Benzene, and Xylene (BTEX) contaminants to less than 15 parts per million (ppm) on an offshore platform. The advantage of using Prosep’s Osorb technology includes a notably low-system footprint, durability of media, and greater flexibility of regeneration.

Prosep Awarded Contract For Statoil’s Troll B ZMP Project

Technology helps Statoil reduce package size and recognize process efficiencies

ProDryFEBRUARY 14, 2017 (HOUSTON) – ProSep, the industry-leading technology and service provider for integrated process solutions, announced today it will supply one (1) ProDry™ unit to Statoil for the Troll B ZMP Project. ProSep’s project scope of supply – awarded through Aker Solutions – began in January 2017 and is expected to last approximately five months.

“The ProDry™ technology has demonstrated the ability to dehydrate natural gas with nearly 100% approach to equilibrium,” explained Greg Hallahan, ProSep’s Director of Product Development. He continued, “This enhanced performance, as compared to standard injection quills, allows significant cost savings via replacement of standard countercurrent towers, eliminating the large vessels and internals. Additional savings in operating expenses can be realized by minimizing TEG losses and demonstrating resilience to common TEG tower issues, such as TEG foaming and carryover.”

The ProDry™ technology to deployed on the Troll B platform, uses ProSep’s ECLIPSE mixer for triethylene glycol (TEG) injection.  Due to ProDry’s high mixing efficiency, Statoil will replace a standard countercurrent TEG tower with an in-line, co-current mixer and separator/knock-out drum. The required TEG flow compared to a conventional tower will be reduced, allowing the project to utilize spare capacity in the existing TEG regeneration packages.

“The ECLIPSE mixer has been used for various applications, such as H2S scavenging in natural gas production, on a number of platforms in the Norwegian Continental Shelf,” stated Jacek Kacperski, ProSep Sales Manager for Europe. “However, this project represents the first time the ECLIPSE mixer has been installed for gas dehydration with TEG or MEG, the ProDry™ application, and brings to conclusion a years’ long R&D and Business Development effort to reach commercialization. ProSep feels that this application is the first step toward proving the mixers capability as part of an in-line co-current system, which has future applications for subsea developments.
