A Mobile Oil Separator (MOS) has been launched in South Yaran Oilfield. According to the Petroleum Engineering and Development Company (PEDEC), Homayoun Kazemeini, head of the South Yaran Oil Field Development Project, announced launching of the MOS in the field, adding according to the studies on maximum production of oil from the wells of this joint field, the use of this system was put on the agenda.
After installing the device in a safe place and ensuring connections, the flow of oil is directed to the MOS and after hitting the distributing tray, the gas flows upwards and the oil downwards, and after the stabilization of the oil, the pump is set on and the oil level is tuned and controlled by an automatic valve, he said.
This operation will be monitored until the well reach the desired pressure for transferring the separated oil toward the production unit and through this the capacity of oil production will be increased.
So far, vetting of the companies providing this device (MOS) has been carried out and the assessments are in their final stages by PEDEC.
According to Kazemeini, the companies providing these services are completely Iranian and have been visited by experienced technical and engineering teams.
Mobile Oil Separator (MOS) is a device for separating gas from crude oil and pumping it to the pipeline during the drilling, repairing, acidizing and testing of oil wells. As emphasized in its name, this device is mobile and it is possible to utilize it on any needed oil well and then easily transfer and install it on another one. It is composed of three units which are installed on trailers.
