REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS

In recent years Oil & Gas companies are working hard to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimize their carbon footprint. Refineries have to comply with emissions and wastewater regulations which have been updated according to the Paris Climate Agreement.

 

SurfCleaner helps refineries to fulfill their needs for the treatment of produced water and wastewater. Skimmer Separator Hybrids SCO 8000 and SCO 1000 are commonly used to remove surface oil in API separators and storm water pits. Both SCO 1000 and SCO 8000 are ATEX/EX certified for Zone 0.

 

SurfCleaner Hybrids skim and separate oil of light and medium viscosity, operate continuously, preventing oil from accumulating on the water surface. Some refineries have installed SurfCleaners in covered API separators and have been able to reduce VOC emissions by up to a staggering 95%!

CUSTOMER REFERENCE

Sonatrach Raffineria Italiana

Sonatrach refinery in Augusta on Sicily is one of the largest refineries in Italy. They use API basins to clean their oily wastewater from the plant and needed a solution to clean water containing contaminants

 

“SurfCleaners automatically adapt the inflow depending on the thickness of the oil – from light fractions to thick oil – SurfCleaners can work with every type of slop. We have been able to reduce our VOC emissions considerably, and we can re-refine the oil that is separated, a double goal achieved in terms of environmental sustainability.”
