Paper presented at the SPE Canada Heavy Oil Technical Conference, June 9–11, 2015
Paper Number: SPE-174458-MS
... With both water flooding and CHOPS, the amount of water and sand contained in the emulsion is significantly greater than from conventional wells. This creates several problems within the heater treater; corrosion, non-uniform flow rates, changing water and sand content, all make heater operation...

...Kenneth R. Ferguson; Richard H. Stechmann This paper describes a program carried out to find the most cost-effective method of increasing the combustion efficiency of direct-gas-fired heater treaters. A mobile combustion analysis system was used to pinpoint areas of heat loss in production treaters...
Paper presented at the AMPP Annual Conference + Expo, March 6–10, 2022
Paper Number: AMPP-2022-17586
... Abstract Heater Treaters are designed for the removal of emulsifies and unwanted salts from crude oil. This paper will discuss a case study completed on two heater treaters that exhibited premature failure after 8 months in service, involving an extensive fire with a subsequent loss...
