Vertical Separators at a Well Site-01

3-Phase Separators: An Overview

Produced well fluids consist of various amounts of oil, water, natural gas, and sediment. The first step in oil and gas production is to split the flow up into its individual components with a separator. A three-phase separator uses gravity to separate produced well fluid into gas, oil, and water phases. Installation of these vessels

How to Convert a Gas Regulator from Vent to Non-vent

A back pressure regulator is a specific type of control valve that holds pressure on production vessels such as separators, treaters, and free water knockouts and releases upstream pressure when a designated set point is reached. When a gas back pressure regulator is operating correctly, it vents pressure off the diaphragm as it adjusts. However, some producers

Upstream Production

Upstream vs Downstream Oil and Gas Operations

Upstream vs. Downstream Oil and Gas Operations When you think of the oil and gas industry, do you picture companies that search for deposits, drill wells, and pull these resources from the ground? These companies all fall under the category of “upstream” oil and gas. Industry professionals also refer to these as Exploration and Production

Electric Controller: How to Install a Kimray Electric Pilot

The Kimray Electric Pilot (U.S. Patent Pending) is a stand-alone electric controller that can control pressure, flow, temperature, or level. It features an interactive screen and allows you to control process conditions without the use of a Remote Terminal Unit (RTU), Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), or any other computing hardware. In this video, Alex Crow shows you
