Low shear oil production

The relevance of low shear oil production

Shear in itself is not necessarily a problem and a certain level of shear can even be required, either to promote coalescence or enhance gas-liquid separation in the event of foaming. However, too much shear has a negative influence on separation efficiency.

Improved Oil Recovery by low shear handling of injection polymers

Mechanical degradation of polymers is a well-known technical challenge in the petroleum industry. Polyacrylamide molecules are very long flexible chain molecules that are broken when submitted to high shear rates.

LOW SHEAR AND COALESCING PUMP CASE STUDY

By using the turbulence in a centrifugal pump more constructive you will be able to reduce droplet breakup and even grow droplets in a produced water stream while pumping.

CONSEQUENCES OF SHEAR IN OIL-WATER STREAM

Typhonix has established Low Shear production philosophy, which is cleaner production through low shear process solutions. Rather than challenging the effects that emulsions create, we focus on the causes to their formation.
