Get the Right Sizing

Reef Energy Systems has the capability of designing and sizing your dual flare using AutoCad Plant 3D Modelling. We developed an in-house Excel spreadsheet for the iPad, giving the customer instant sizing answers based on the customer’s gas compositions and flow rates based on API 521.

Vapor Recovery

Vapor Recovery Units (VRU)

A vapor recovery unit (VRU) is an engineered compression package designed to lower emission levels coming from the vapors of gasoline or other fuels while recovering valuable hydrocarbons to be sold or reused as fuel onsite.

As the liquid level in your tanks fluctuates, these vapors are often vented to the atmosphere. It is necessary to have a vapor-recovery compression system. VRU collects hydrocarbon vapors boiled off the hydrocarbon liquids, compresses these vapors to a specified pressure, and then cools the vapors.

Vapor recovery units are relatively simple systems capturing about 95% of the Btu-rich vapors for sale or for use onsite as fuel. During the cooling process, liquids condense and are collected and pumped back into a storage tank or pipeline. Reef Energy Systems utilizes the Leroi compression system for our VRUs.

Vapor Recovery Towers (Vertical and Horizontal)

Vapor recovery towers help further separate gas from the liquids before reaching the collection tanks to help further reduce atmospheric venting and destruction necessities. We also offer a patent-pending horizontal vapor recovery vessel (HVRV) that is utilized for high-volume collection sites where standard VRTs are inadequately equipped to handle the amount of flow rate of those sites.

Types of Separators and Other Oilfield Applications

Reef Energy Systems offers the following:

Let us know what you need, and we can have it manufactured to the standards and applications you require it for.

Test Separators

This equipment is a cylindrical or spherical vessel for separating oil, gas, and water from the total fluid stream produced by a well. Separators can be either horizontal or vertical and can be classified into two-phase and three-phase separators (a.k.a. free-water knockout). The two-phase type deals only with oil and gas, while the three-phase type handles oil, water, and gas.

Additionally, separators can be categorized according to their operating pressure. Low-pressure units handle pressures of 10 to 180 psi [69 to 1241 kPa]. Medium-pressure separators operate from 230 to 700 psi [1586 to 4826 kPa]. High-pressure units handle pressures of 975 to 1500 psi [6722 to 10,342 kPa].

Heater Treaters

This vessel uses heat to break oil-water emulsions so the oil can be accepted by the pipeline or transport. There are vertical and horizontal treaters. The main difference between them is the residence time, which is shorter in the vertical configuration compared with the horizontal one.

We can build our heater treaters to any customer specifications. Contact us to learn more.

Free Water Knock Out (FWKO)

A free-water knockout is a vertical or horizontal separator used mainly to remove any free water that can cause problems, such as corrosion and formation of hydrates or tight emulsions, which are difficult to break. This equipment is commonly called a three-phase separator because it can separate gas, oil, and free water. The liquids that are discharged from the free-water knockout are further treated in vessels called treaters.

Oil and Gas Metering Measurement

Oil and gas measurement is the process of quantifying the mass or volume of hydrocarbons produced as the oil and gas is sold to a buyer along the supply chain. As mandated by law in the United States, oil and gas metering usually begins at the wellsite.

Preventative Maintenance Programs

At Reef Energy Systems, we work with our plant customer base to establish turn-key maintenance programs to minimize downtime and keep all upstream and midstream oil and gas equipment maintained properly.

Flare Maintenance Program: (Suggested Service for This Equipment)

We offer a flare maintenance program to customers that operate ten or more RES Flares. Since field location flares tend to foul wires and igniter electrodes, our service team can perform the following tasks to ensure that your flare is ready when the necessity of flaring gas arises:

Flare Equipment
Hydraulic Tubes, Fittings And Manometers

Since most tank battery field flares tend to experience problems (i.e., burned wiring, restricted gas flow through inline spark arrestors, and flame detection fouling), we suggest a 30 to 60-day routine maintenance check for all the flaring devices.

(*Please note that some locations which flare continuously could require more frequent maintenance checks.)

Equipment That Removes Gas
Two Engineers Working In Oil And Gas Industry

H2S and CO2 Sweetening Plants

Amine treating plants remove CO2 (carbon dioxide) and H2S (hydrogen sulfide) from natural gas. Amine has a natural affinity for both CO2 and H2S, allowing this to be a very efficient and effective removal process.

From a dirt pad to the final safety switch, we offer a turn-key operation to assist operators. You can rely on us for engineering, construction, equipment and vessel manufacturing, and anything else you require. We are here to help operators keep projects on time and within budget and ensure the needs of our customers are satisfied.

Dehydrators and BTEX Units

A BTEX condenser unit (a.k.a BTEX eliminator) removes BTEX fractions from the Dehy still column overhead stream. BTEX is an acronym for benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes. These compounds are some of the most volatile organic compounds found in petroleum derivatives, such as petrol. The removal of toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes is vital as these compounds have harmful effects on the environment.

Crude Oil Sweetening Process

The crude oil sweetening process is used to eliminate hydrogen sulfide [H2S] and carbon dioxide [CO2] from a gas stream. The water is removed while the acid gas can be flared or further treated in a sulfur recovery unit to separate out elemental sulfur. Finally, the lean ethanolamine is returned to the absorber.
