    what are Emulsions

    Removing water from crude oil often requires additional processing beyond gravitational separation. In selecting a treating system, several factors should be considered to determine the most desirable methods of treating the crude oil to contract requirements. Some of these factors are: Tightness of the emulsion. Specific gravity of the oil and produced water. Corrosiveness of the crude oil, produced water, and casing head gas. Scaling tendencies of the produced water. Quantity of fluid to be treated and percent water in the fluid. Paraffin-forming tendencies of the crude oil. Desirable operating pressures for equipment. Availability of a sales outlet and value of the casing head gas produced. Why Remove Water? Wet…
