Jorin Oilfield Water System Analyzers

Jorin produces, maintains and provides after-sales support for visual process analyzer (ViPA) instruments utilized for on-line measurement of oil concentration, oil drop size distribution, total suspended solids and solid particle size distribution in oilfield water systems.

High-temperature, high-pressure and ATEX-certified water-treatment plant monitor

Jorin offers the ViPA either as a permanently installed process instrument package, monitoring single or multiple sample points within a water treatment plant, or as a mobile instrument transferable between sample points. All ViPA systems can handle high temperature (120°C) and high pressure (120bar) samples and are ATEX certified for use in hazardous areas.

Process-data generation for produced water treatment, separation and filtration systems

A ViPA is used to generate continuous process data in produced water treatment, separation and filtration systems, especially where treated produced water is being re-injected for sweep and pressure maintenance in producing formations.

These instruments can also be used to monitor the treatment of seawater and aquifer water for injection purposes, and for monitoring of treated, produced water being returned to the local environment.

Mobile and fixed water-treatment plant process instruments

Both mobile and permanently installed ViPA systems can be configured for use in highly ambient temperatures and are suitable for use in desert environments.

Fixed offshore process instruments for unmanned locations

The permanently installed instruments are self maintaining and have been installed in unmanned locations. The data from a permanently installed ViPA can be used for process management and performance verification.

Offshore plant troubleshooting, fluid specification, performance testing, and optimisation and monitoring instruments

The mobile instruments can be deployed for process troubleshooting, establishment of fluid specifications, performance testing of new process devices or optimisation of existing plant and monitoring of chemical trials. Jorin provide contract technicians to operate the mobile instruments where required, and will collate all data and prepare reports to client specifications.

Previous case studies have included optimisation of three-phase separators, hydro-cyclone vessels, compact flotation units and filtration plants.

Online video and analysis for oilfield water-system particulates

The ViPA uses continuous online video imaging with image analysis to provide size, shape and concentration data for all particulates present in oilfield water systems. Using information on particle shape, objects can be classified as oil drops, gas bubbles or solid particles.

The information can be stored in separate databases, allowing the continuous monitoring of up to eight particle populations simultaneously. Detailed investigation of shape parameters can further identify solid particles, typically as sand, process scale, biological material or agglomerated oil and solids.

The richness of this data stream means that operators do not have to rely on a single parameter such as oil concentration to characterise a produced water stream.

Oil drop, solid particle, and troublesome-solid origin models

This additional information on oil drop size, solid particle size and type, and the potential origin of troublesome solids, gives a more complete model of water quality and the power to resolve many process issues.
