Develop processes and upgrade with a five-stage methodology

Our stage-gate methodology for evaluating and validating process systems and technology comprises five stages: concept, 测试, 驾驶, 调试, 和操作. This process accelerates the transition from idea to process facility while enhancing reliability and consistency of performance. Using the same methodology, we can also work with you to jointly develop customized processing technology.


各种各样的操作条件, treatment technologies, and production chemicals can be physically simulated to test parameters using several process simulation loops at our research and technology centers.

  • The hydrocarbon treatment unit facilitates electrostatic technology selection to optimize electrostatic oil dehydration and desalting.
  • The oil/水 separation loop simulates induced 气体 flotation and cyclonic separation process evaluation for deoiling and de水ing.
  • The process simulation and test loop facilitates optimization of two-phase and three-phase gravity separation.
  • The produced 水 test rig evaluates oil-in-水 separation and treatment using our propriety compact flotation unit technology. Effective and efficient compact flotation unit process evaluation is critical to identify processing parameters the first time.
  • 最后, we evaluate acid 气体 membrane technology to ensure performance requirements will exceed customer expectations for performance and reliability.

测试 parameters is more cost effective than full-scale experiments or simulations and can identify risks that are best discovered and addressed in a laboratory setting. Parametric 测试 on conditions such as emulsion viscosity, high-temperature conductivity, and electrostatic susceptibility generates quantitative evidence that a system can succeed when implemented in the field on a full-scale basis.


A range of laboratory services—from analyzing fluid anomalies that impede separation of oil, 水, and solids to measuring pH and salinity levels—provides the data that identify risks and increase an operation's success.


Offshore and subsea exploration and production require focusing on and defining the different operating conditions in these demanding environments. 我们的专家研究系统共振, 流体部队, structural integrity, 以及过程在不同海况下的影响. Proprietary 测试 capabilities help identify the technologies that best fit your specific requirements.
