Content Summary

In this video, we explain 6 principles of oil and water emulsion separation, specific to the oil and gas industry. An oil and water emulsion refers specifically to the fluid that comes directly from an oil and gas well. When a well is produced, what comes to the surface is a mixture of oil, water, gas, and solids. After the gas has been separated from the liquid, the oil and water that remain must also be separated. Emulsions in the oil industry are either classified as “water-in-oil“ or “oil-in-water” depending on the ratio of the volume of liquids. Gas brought to the surface is usually “wet gas” composed of dry natural gas like methane mixed with liquid natural gases like ethane and butane. All these components are separated using multiple principles of separation to achieve the desired end products that are considered valuable.
