Statoil order ProSep mixer for North Sea Gudrun

Offshore staff

STAVANGER, Norway – Statoil has contracted ProSep to supply its ProSalt mixer technology to the Gudrun platform in the Norwegian North Sea.

The proprietary technique is said to allow efficient use of wash water and chemicals and better oil-in-water separation, compared with static mixers.

For Gudrun, the ProSalt’s internal design and material selection should improve its reliability against erosion and corrosion, ProSep added.

Statoil selected this system partly due to its ability to modulate with changing process conditions. The operator will probably inject wash water into the production line toward the end of this year, using the system’s mixing capability to meet salt requirements.
