GOwSP - Gas-Oil-water Separation Platform: a closed-loop facility at Lyon site

GOwSP is a closed-loop facility operating with gas, crude oil and water, dedicated to

  • R&D studies: crude oil separation behavior in vertical and horizontal testing separators
  • testing of equipment: internal separator equipment, O/W and W/O monitors, pre-coalescer devices.
GOwSP separation platform

Operating conditions

- Up to 55 bars and 80°C
 - Flow rates: Gas 1000 Nm 3/h – Oil 15 m 3/h – Water 15 m 3/h

 

Instrumentation - Up to 50 measurement points in real time

  • On each flow line, upstream of the separators: T°C and P transducers, mass flowmeters, oil viscometer and gammameter, flow sampling devices
     
  • On the multiphase flow line at the inlet to the separators: P transducer, viscometer, flow sampling device
     
  • Inside the separators: T°C and P transducers, multiple-level sampling device, 2 inter-phase gauges, oil level sampling device
     
  • On each flow line, downstream of the separators: mass flowmeters, oil gammameter, flow sampling devices
