Paper presented at the SPE/IADC Managed Pressure Drilling and Underbalanced Operations Conference and Exhibition, April 17–18, 2018
Paper Number: SPE-190008-MS
... Abstract The sizing calculation of a traditional Mud Gas Separator (MGS) becomes crucial when flowrates as high as drilling flowrates could be utilized to circulate out formation fluids using a fully automated Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) control system. With the technological advancements...

Paper Number: OTC-20558-MS
... Abstract A three-phase separator in the oil and gas industry integrates two separate parts: a gas-liquid section and an oil-water section. The gas-liquid separation section is determined by the maximum removal droplet size using the Sauders-Brown equation with an appropriate K factor. The oil...

... to these units. The sizing procedure described here allows to size horizontal gas-liquid separators, considering non-stable flowrate at the inlet, or fluctuations in the liquid fraction on the same stream. The method looks for the best unit design to address these variations and also gets the smallest possible...
