Monday, June 24, 2024 | 10:00AM – 11:30AM CT

The well-known maximum carryover specification of 0.1 gallons of liquid per million standard cubic feet of gas has been referenced and stipulated in design guides, engineering specifications, and vendor brochures for many decades. This specification is being applied regardless of process service, separator type, operating conditions, feed composition, and inlet volumetric fraction. If there’s a mist extraction device, it’s very likely that this specification will be applied. What’s most concerning is that many equipment manufacturers are guaranteeing that their devices will meet this carryover performance.

This webinar will highlight and go through results of previously published separation tests of a vertical scrubber with state-of-the-art internals performed at Southwest Research through The Separation Technology Research (STAR) Joint-Industry program. The tests at field like conditions confirm what many of the industry experts already know, meeting the infamous carryover criteria is almost impossible, requiring separation efficiency in the order of 99.95% or greater.

Speakers

Edward GraveSpeakerEd Grave graduated from New Jersey Institute of Technology with a Master of Science in 1982. Ed started his career at Lummus Technical Center working on a several large-scale petrochemical projects. He later joined Mobil Research & Development Company in 1990 as a mass transfer specialist. Ed retired from ExxonMobil in 2017 as an Upstream Senior Technical Advisor for Fractionation & Separation with the Upstream Research Company in Spring, TX. His team was responsible for research, design, training, and troubleshooting, for all fractionating & separation systems for the entire ExxonMobil Upstream organization. Ed was presented with a Lifetime Achievement award for Innovation and Creativity Excellence by ExxonMobil Upstream Research in 2015 and for the development of cMIST™ technology.

Ed initiated and guided the joint industry Separations Technology Research (STAR) Program on qualifying separation equipment as technical chairman. He also served as vice-chair at SPE’s Separation Technology Technical Section (STTS) and in 2016-2017 he was an SPE Distinguished Lecturer.

Ed also represented ExxonMobil at Fractionation Research Inc. for over 20 years, a joint industry research center specializing in distillation technology, as a member of the Design Practices and the Executive Committees.

Ed has written and presented numerous papers throughout the world and is an inventor/co-inventor on eighteen patents.
Since his retirement, Ed has worked as a consultant in designing and evaluating several distillation, absorption, and upstream separation projects.
Henri WitteveenModeratorHenri holds a MSc in Chemical Engineering. He has worked for the Oil and Gas Industry since 2004. His expertise lies within the oil and gas processing, concentrating on the separation side of the business, such as 2-phase, 3 phase, solid separation, produced water treatment and gas conditioning.

From 2004 till 2009 Henri worked for CDS Engineering BV in the Netherlands. He worked as (senior) process engineer on the process and sales department and quoted, sold and designed numerous vessel and internals design projects all over the world. He was also involved in R&D projects developing new separation internals for the Oil and Gas industry.

In 2011 Henri joined Kranji Solutions Pte Ltd as Senior process engineer. Henri is process designing and troubleshooting separators, developing new separation internals with the extensive aid of CFD and R&D in the Kranji test lab. His extensive knowledge of separation technology has made him invaluable for the development of MySep, a process design engineering software.
