Gazprom Neft uses ultrasound in oil treatment process
current-4631715_1920
The Gazprom Neft Science and Technology Centre, together with Slavneft-Megionneftegaz, have completed testing of Russia’s first oil-treatment technology involving the use of industrial ultrasound.

    This technology separates water—oil emulsions into oil and water, under the effect of ultrasonic waves. The process takes place directly in the pipeline, without the use of special separation tank.

This new technology can cut consumption of demulsification agents by as much as 30 % in comparison with traditional methods as well as using Russian-made chemicals instead of expensive imported alternatives.

Specialists at the Gazprom Neft Science and Technology Centre researched the impacts of ultrasound, electromagnetic radiation, low, high and ultra-high frequencies, and electrohydraulic shock waves.

    The outcomes revealed how different force fields act in separating oil—water emulsions, ensuring the most effective process in oil and water treatment.

    Testing conducted in the field at Slavneft-Megionneftegaz field confirmed the high cost-effectiveness of this new technology and scope for it to be replicated throughout other company assets.

Russian scientists developed new method for breaking oil-water emulsions

The scientists from the V.I. Vernadsky Institute of Geochemistry and Analytical Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) developed a new method for breaking field oil-water emulsions into water and oil without specialised chemical agents. It helps to receive feedstock for downstream refining or for sales. The research outcomes are published in the Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering.
