Treating Oilfield Emulsions, 4th Ed.
Sometimes the fluids that come out of a well are not ready to be transported via pipeline or treated in the refinery. When water and oil have formed an emulsion, it becomes necessary to apply chemicals and special methods to separate them. Usually an oilfield emulsion must be treated, or most of the water must be removed from the oil, before the oil is shipped. This training manual teaches the reader about the causes and treatments of oilfield emulsions. Topics include theory of emulsions, basic principles of treating, chemical treating, heater-treaters, sampling procedures, testing for sediment and water, and treating cost records. Readable language, clearly labeled illustrations and photographs, a glossary, and helpful self-test review questions help the reader understand the material.
