Pyramid E&C has generic, pre-engineered modular units available for rental for 10,000 BOPD Crude Oil Production. These facilities fit into several containerised modules suitable for sea and road transport.
The rental EPF is reasonably complex to provide saleable product for mid-range Crude Oil. The use of the unit on a rental basis allows the Customer to start production and thus revenue generation as soon as possible. Our robust equipment design ensures hassle free operation for customers.

Process Description

Two Phase Separation: The well stream fluid from the inlet manifold is flashed in the Two Phase Separator which operates at a pressure of 20 bar(g). This provides the initial separation between oil and gas.
Crude Preheat Exchanger: The oil from the Two Phase Separator is heated in Stabilized Oil-Crude Interchanger by recovering heat from treated stabilized crude flowing from Stabilizer Column.

Three Phase Separation: Heated crude along with condensate from the Flare Knockout Drum enters the Three Phase Separator, which operates at a pressure of 5 bar(g) for oil, gas and water separation. Gas from the separator is flared. The produced water is cooled prior to disposal.

Desalter (optional): The oil from the Three Phase Separator is pumped to the Desalter using Desalter Feed Pumps. Wash water is pumped through a Wash Water Pre-Heater and then mixed with the crude oil using a mixing valve or static mixer. The combined water and crude flow to the desalter, where electrostatic grids aid in the settling of the brine from the crude. The brine is mixed with the produced water for disposal.

Crude Stabilization: Desalted crude is stabilized in a reboiled column. This process removes H²S and also reduces the vapour pressure of the crude. The gas from the Stabilizer is flared.

Crude Oil Storage: Stabilized oil is pumped through the Stabilized Oil-Crude Interchanger, where it is cooled by the crude feed. The stabilized oil is further cooled by an air cooler and then stored in Crude Oil Storage Tanks.

Crude Oil Transfer: Stored oil is pumped using Crude Oil Transfer pumps to loading bays for truck loading.
