Wednesday April 21., Mari Stokka will present results from a recent field test of a low shear valve suitable for polymer flooding in a mother solution injection scheme.
The low shear valve was installed on a high-concentration mother solution flow line at the Matzen field in Austria. The low footprint valve was found to be easy to connect and operate, and the low shear performance was well within the design criteria. When employing the novel low shear valve in a mother solution application, the central pumping station and low shear valves will result in significantly lower CAPEX and maintenance costs.
