Surface Production Operations, Volume 1: Second Edition: Design of Oil-Handling Systems and Facilities

By

Ken Arnold, Maurice Stewart

Description

In this new edition, experts Arnold and Stewart share their many years of in-the-field and class-room experience. Each chapter has been updated with the latest industry information. You will find new sections on:

* Oil-and-water separation
* Offshore-platform considerations
* Factors affecting oil-and-gas separation
* Potential operating problems
* Scrubbers
* Re-entrainment
* Drain systems
* Hydrocyclones 
* Multiphase pumps
* Reciprocating pump operations
* Water droplet size

New figures, photos, charts, and tables consolidate hours of details into “at-a-glance” illustrations. Example problems accompany the update text. With this volume’s clear presentation, you will understand the basic concepts and techniques needed to DESIGN, SPECIFY, and OPERATE oilfield surface production facilities. This manual carefully describes the equipment and processes commonly used in oil-water separating and treating systems. It also shows you how to select the appropriate piping and pumping systems. The authors’ insights and practical suggestions help you understand the art and science of handling produced liquids. With this reference in hand, you can organize the project with a better grasp of the complex parameters needed to design and operate an efficient production facility.

Reviews

“As a Process Engineer, working in both operations and design in the upstream oil industry, it is pleasing to find a text that finally covers all the unit operations you are likely to encounter in oil processing. The book is an easy read that doesn’t get weighed down in first principles. This means that you can quickly get the information you require and have confidence in your decisions. It’s a must for anyone working in the industry, especially those who may be offshore, I always have my copy with me.” – Ed Pickering

Excellent text for a working Process Engineer . As a Process Engineer, working in both operations and design in the upstream oil industry, it is pleasing to find a text that finally covers all the unit operations you are likely to encounter in oil processing. The book is an easy read that doesn’t get weighed down in first principles. This means that you can quickly get the information you require and have confidence in your decisions. It’s a must for anyone working in the industry, especially those who may be offshore, I always have my copy with me.”

“This book is very useful for both Process and non process engineers working in the field and finding all kinds of surface equipment. The relation between the equipment is also very important while customer advising because process engineering in Latin America is kind of a game each one plays by his own criteria and having a great weakness on equipment availability. Lets say that general rules does not apply, but with the guidance of this book is very easy to understand why things happen and how decisions affect production fields operations.”

“As a junior engineer this book has helped me comprehend processes and procedures/options that I did not understand before.

Highly recommended!!”
