EMULSION BREAKING METHODS IN OIL PRODUCTION

Publication Date Nov 1, 2019

Abstract

Background Complications in oil production, an increase in the cost of processing downhole products, additional transportation costs are the result of the formation of oil-water emulsions. Emulsions are formed when oil is mixed with water at the exit from the wells and at desalination plants. The issues of increasing breaking of oil-water emulsions efficiency, improving methods of dealing with them remain urgent. So, oil processing technologies are being improved, and optimized demulsifiers are being developed, which is one of the most effective method of emulsions breaking. Aims and Objectives The aim of the work is to calculate the STX-9 demulsifier flow rate to ensure the required degree of oil-water emulsion destruction at Kumertau oil field. Results It was determined that for the Kumertau field the optimal demulsifier is STH-9, which is used at intervals of 5 times per month with a specific dosage of 29 g/t.
