Installation of the GEA Crude Oil Treatment System parallel to the (electrostatic) system already in place
Heavy crude oil poses new challenges due to its lower density differences. When certain limit values are reached, the flow through the existing (electrostatic) systems must be reduced in order to maintain the oil quality at the desired level. GEA treatment systems with GEA crude oil dehydration Centrifuges and GEA crude oil desalting Centrifuges, which are installed parallel to the existing static separator, are an alternative to investing in a larger or additional electrostatic system. Besides relieving the existing installation, a parallel installation can also increase the overall capacity of the process.
It is expected that the crude oil treated by the centrifuges will provide better initial values (BS&W). Thus, an output product with a "poorer" quality from the existing (electrostatic) system combined with the centrifuge output product can provide a quality value that is within specifications.
