What Does “Back Pressure” Mean, and Why Is It Important?

Simply put, back pressure that is pressure that is held back. “Back” in this context means against the natural flow of fluid or gas. In oil and gas applications it refers to upstream pressure that is held, or maintained, in a variety of production vessels to provide the right conditions for separation and processing. Production

Examples of Oil Separation Systems

What is an Oil Separation System?

Oil Separation System Wells typically produce three elements: oil, gas, and water. Oil and gas producers use a combination of separation vessels, also called an “oil separation system,” to separate these elements. Three of the most common types of separation vessels are two-phase separators, three-phase separators, and heater treaters. Three-Phase Separator A three-phase separator separates

What’s the Best Valve for Salt Water Disposal?

Salt water disposal is a large and often overlooked piece of the oil and gas industry. Salt water is a natural byproduct of oil and gas production. Out of the roughly 1 million producing oil and gas wells in United States flows 21 billion barrels of water per year. What is a Salt Water Disposal

Should I Use Mechanical or Pneumatic Controls for my Coal Seam Gas production?

Should I Use Mechanical or Pneumatic Controls for my Coal Seam Gas production? 

Kimray has helped pioneer coal seam gas production with producers across the United States, India, and Australia.   Coal Seam Gas recovery, also called Coal Bed Methane production, is a method of recovering gas stored in coal. In this video, we explain the process and two solutions Kimray provides to control it.   Coal Seam Gas Production Because coal seam

Vertical and Horizontal Oil and Gas Separators

Oil and Gas Separator: How It Works

An oil and gas separator is a vertical or horizontal vessel that producers use to separate the elements of a fluid stream. The typical elements in the stream are oil, gas, water, and sand or sediment. Oil and Gas Separator Phases Oil and Gas separators are classified as two-phase and three-phase separators. Two-phase separators handle
