HOUSTON – Baker Hughes has introduced the TRETOLITE SNAP fluids separation technologies.

They are designed to help oil and gas operators maintain dry oil and good water quality, while also stabilizing operations and reducing costs—without limiting production—to improve overall profitability.

This next generation of chemical solutions includes water clarification and demulsification technologies that deliver improved performance in multiple production applications, including steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) facilities, as well as conventional and unconventional onshore and offshore fields.

The new technologies help minimize oil-in-water (OIW) levels to improve water quality for reuse, reducing heat exchanger fouling and related equipment cleanout expenses. The new products, the company says, also help lower basic sediment and water content in the oil to decrease recycling and slop oil trucking, which translates into additional operational efficiencies and cost savings.

Baker Hughes says the new technologies help to more efficiently lower OIW and basic sediment and water levels to ensure regulatory compliance and to minimize oil losses due to high OIW content. Operators may also attain a tighter oil/water interface with these new products, which helps reduce slop oil production and improve overall oil and water separation.
