The problem with oil production
As an oil well ages, gases and fluids mix in the flow lines resulting in large pressure and production fluctuations, which can give rise to operational hazards and even damage.
Conventional slug mitigation measures involve slowing down oil extraction, and could reduce oil production up to 10%.
Severe multiphase slugging flow, in which pockets of liquid cause blockages due to lack of upstream pressure, is a problem especially related to mature oil field operations such as the North Sea.
Losses in production are currently £6bn each year worldwide!
De Flow Ltd. has the solution
The technology will increase oil production, and well life will also be extended.
The control system will be easy to install and economically competitive with revenue opportunities and benefits for the UK North Sea extraction industry and other such world-wide applications. Developed with international partners for offshore applications. Trials were initiated with our consortium partner Chevron for their Alba platform in the North Sea.
