Meet the Experts: Terry Lou, PhD Process Engineer

The driving force behind ProSep’s success and its innovative solutions is undoubtedly its people. In our new ‘Meet the Expert’ feature, find out more about our team and their roles at ProSep.

How long have you been with ProSep?
I have been with ProSep for almost 4.5 years

What does your role entail?
My main responsibility as Process Engineer is leading the process design of ProSep’s proprietary oil and gas treatment systems. Other responsibilities include reviewing clients’ requests for quotation (RFQ) documents, developing optimized process and technical solutions, delivering technical and commercial proposals and working together with other groups internally and externally to ensure projects run smoothly from beginning to end. I am also heavily involved in product research and development to look at ways to improve efficiency and performance.

What is the most exciting project you have worked on?
It is a project we completed in 2018. We were contacted to supply our inline mixing unit for LPG injection to increase BTU value of the vaporized liquid natural gas. This was one of the most comprehensive projects I have ever participated in which included the initial process design; computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis to provide guidance for design optimization; pilot scale field testing proving the optimized design along with the CFD results and the final technical solution covering a broad range of process conditions. We finally secured the PO for this project after a side-by-side competition with an industry giant who is well known in this area. It was a career highlight to open a new market for our highly efficient inline mixing technology and I am so proud to have been part of that.

ProSep’s New Case Study: Eagle Ford eCLIP Mixer!

An Eagle Ford Shale producer requested the installation of a second eCLIP inline atomizer after the successful performance of its first unit. The second eCLIP unit was installed and delivered a range of benefits to the operator including reaching H2S specification in less than 12ft, enhanced triazine usage and reduced chemical injection pressure resulting in less chemical pump maintenance.

ProSep secures first refinery application of MAX+ technology in Middle East

ProSep, an industry-leading, technology and service provider for integrated process solutions to the global energy industry, has announced the first refinery application in the Middle East of its Mutliphase Adjustable Xtreme (MAX+) Mixer.

The Max+ unit is a unique mixer with integrated injection and mixing capabilities which delivers homogenous mixing of multiphase flows with low pressure drop over the entire turndown range. Scheduled for delivery in 2019, ProSep’s MAX+ technology exceeds that of traditional static mixers with its unique, fit for purpose design delivering a range of benefits.

Benefits include delivering the same high level of mixing efficiency by facilitating real-time adjustments to match production flow fluctuations; achieving up to 50% wash water utilisation in downstream applications therefore increasing desalting efficiency and reducing salinity levels; and, a homogeneous shear force to match process fluid properties for efficient separation resulting in reduced emulsion formation and salt corrosion downstream.

Ryan McPherson, ProSep General Manager for the Middle East and Asia Pacific said: “We are delighted to be supplying the MAX+ mixer to our client. The MAX+ unit for desalting is particularly suited for refinery applications where low outlet salinity levels are desirable.

“The fit for purpose design of the MAX+ mixing provides enhanced mixing action that allows the injected dilution water to make better contact with the already low levels of salt and water that accompany refinery crude feed stock.”

With a portfolio of proprietary products, ProSep has installed over 100 mixers globally and continues to work with some of the world’s largest oil companies, providing premium mixing solutions that enhance downstream separation, and rapid Return on Investment (ROI).
