Energy gap analysis in production and desalination of crude oil field

2017: International Conference on Petrochemical Engineering




This study contributes the energy consumption of oil production in operational field. Process evaluation and industrial results illustrate that crude oil density or API, water cut (BS&W), hydrogen sulfide content, Gas to Oil ration, ambient temperature and type of process technology play significant role in energy consumption per ton of crude oil production. Data gathering of these parameters through different seasons has been obtained in an Iranian crude oil field (Asmari 4). The more underestimating of some conceptual factor, the more comprehensive large gap in energy consumption gained during the production of crude oil; which include disregarding sustainable solar and wind energy, non on time routine equipment check, non-optimized energy auxiliaries and non-scheduled flaring. Finally, in this study the regression and Pierson of main parameters has been reported to depict the SEC fluctuation and its effect on CO2 emission, too. Not only, does this article emphasize on the opportunity to make the oil production more sustained profitable; but it also consider the potential to reduce environment pollution as a case study.
