SAVVY SEPARATOR SERIES
The Savvy Separator: A Century of Carry-Over—0.1 gal/MMscf
For as long as anyone can remember, the liquid carry-over separation efficiency of 0.1 gal/MMscf has been ubiquitously specified in separator design. This article provides the most likely scenario of its evolution.
The Savvy Separator: Lessons for Installation of Separator Internals
Process design of separation internals is just one step in improving the vessel performance. Just as important are the support design and installation steps. These lessons learned help to guide good off- and on-site planning to minimize separator turnaround.
TECHNICAL PAPER SYNOPSES
A selection of technical papers on offshore wind technologies by Oil and Gas Facilities’ technical paper editor Gerald Verbeek, Verbeek Management Services.
The Transfer of Oil and Gas Facilities Skills to Offshore Wind Energy
Offshore wind energy projects provide appealing options for the application of the skills and knowledge of practitioners involved in the design and fabrication of oil and gas facilities, especially those with offshore experience.
Harnessing Offshore Renewable Energy
This paper’s intent is to provide a basic understanding of offshore renewable energy, including descriptions of wind and marine-hydrokinetic devices, with a focus on the physical and technical issues.
Offshore Hydrogen Production Enables Far Offshore Wind Development
Wind energy sources located offshore present challenges in transporting large amounts of energy. Energy transport through hydrogen molecules may be a solution. The PosHYdon project is intended to build experience with offshore H2 production and test power-to-gas technologies and integrated systems.
Offshore Windfarm Integrated Into Subsea Field Development
A system was designed to extend the offshore wind-energy concept from the power grid to a subsea field-development application. The system integrates a floating foundation with a wind-turbine generator, with all the required utilities hosted directly onboard the same floater.
Expansion of Offshore Wind Depends on Development of Floating Wind Turbines
Despite having strong wind resources and promising record-breaking capacity factors, most sites globally are unsuitable for bottom-fixed units. Floating wind will provide part of the solution for countries seeking to decarbonize their electricity.
