Our Director of Product Development and Proposals Greg Hallahan and US Sales Manager Brenton Hughes attended the 5th annual Production Chemicals Optimization conference in Houston, Texas last week. The presentations during the event provided a great insight into the latest challenges facing oil and gas operators. The event was also a fantastic opportunity for ProSep to showcase our eClip technology that provides chemical savings in a compact, easy-to-install and cost effective product.
At ProSep product development is a key part of remaining competitive in the market. One of the key people in charge of actively engaging in product development and seeking improvement to design for manufacturing, operation and installation is our Engineering SME, Bill Jagers.
How long have you been with ProSep?
I joined ProSep in 2007. I had been a team member with the prior organizational structure for 4 years as well. It has been quite an adventure.
What does your role entail?
As Engineering SME I provide product development support to the advancement and delivery of ProSep proprietary mixing products performing mechanical design, development of manufacturing plan and delivery of our products. I am actively engaged in product development seeking improvement of design for manufacturing, operation and installation. I support all aspects of mechanical design analysis and manufacture of our products. We offer products to many different markets; therefore, we have the opportunity to work many standards and materials of construction.

Following our announcement of the contract award for two ProSep MAX+ ProSalt mixers for the Equinor’s Heimdal Gas Centre Platform in the North Sea last month we are delighted to confirm the order has been successfully delivered. The 4” CS MAX+ Mixer and 6” Class 1500# duplex MAX+ mixer have been satisfactory tested, preserved and shipped! Thank you to all who contributed to the success of another “on time” delivery project.
ProSep’s AIM high-efficiency mixer is featured in the June 2019 edition of the Journal of Petroleum Engineering, JPT. Our AIM mixer delivers high efficiency mixing at low differential pressures. The compact, high performance AIM mixer minimizes chemical consumption by improving dispersion and mixing in the process stream for gaseous, liquid and multi-phase flows. The patented designs have successfully demonstrated 100% vaporization in a gas processing/pre-treatment application – six of these units will be installed upstream of a major LNG plant in the US in Q3 2019.
Our Multiphase Adjustable Xtreme Mixer (MAX+) technology offers homogenous, high efficiency mixing which can be utilized for desalting, chlorination, demulsifier injection and scavenging.

Next up as part of our meet the expert profile series is Tommie Jackson. Tommie joined ProSep in 2017 as a Product Development Field Engineer and is responsible for the “hands-on” product development data generated in-house and in the field for ProSep’s unique technologies.
What’s the best thing about working at ProSep?
There is never a dull moment working for ProSep, and I have quickly been able to gain experience performing several different roles during my short time here. This has provided me with a more well-rounded knowledge base as I am actively involved in the processes beginning with the product’s proof of concept and sales, to ensuring it meets ProSep’s high quality standards when it reaches the end-user and maintaining these standards when optimization and/or service is needed.
Do you have any key lessons learned from your time with ProSep?
Nothing is perfect, and issues will always arise as variables change. How you respond to this adversity is key because people love a problem solver. Staying calm, being attentive to the client’s needs, processing the data carefully, and developing a solution in a systematic way is necessary to provide the client with an easy to follow approach on how you can help address their needs and anticipate potential causes of any issues.

ProSep has successfully secured a contract with Aker Solutions to provide two MAX+ ProSalt™ mixers to Equinor’s Heimdal Gas Centre Platform in the North Sea.
The installation of ProSep’s proprietary mixers will allow production to resume from the Vale gas and condensate field by reducing the amount of salt present during the downstream processing stages. Vale is a satellite installation connected to the Heimdal platform by a 16.5-kilometre pipeline.
ProSep held their semi-annual Strategy and Technical Session in Houston.
The session kicked off with two inspiring keynote speeches from Ryan Gurney, Managing Partner at Cottonwood Venture Partners and Anthony Thomas, SVP Ringer Gloves. More than ten of the team prepared and presented their high-quality strategic recommendations by product and region.
Adding a little bit of friendly competition to the meeting, the stellar content and delivery of the presentations made it so hard for everyone to judge and select the winner of the best presentation that three first prize winners were awarded to Caleb Smathers, Nicole Miles, and Brenton Hughes!
We now look forward to implementing our new strategy to further develop our business and continue delivering world-class solutions to our clients!
We are delighted to share that the start of Q2 has been fantastic! – four POs totaling close to $2 MM for the delivery of nine mixers have been secured in the last six weeks.
The diversity of applications (and geography) of these mixers: Midstream Gas Treatment/LNG (USA onshore), Upstream Desalting (North Sea), Midstream Oil Treatment (US Onshore), and Upstream Desalting (South America) points to solidification of current focus and opening up new frontiers for our high-efficiency mixing solutions.
In addition, we have also secured two additional purchase orders for our market leading produced water treatment technologies in North Africa (TORR trial) and Australia (Osorb Media System FEED work).
Watch out for more information on these projects soon!
