Introduction to Process Separators

Learning objectives

  • Describe major components of process separators
  • Explain the function of the process separator sections
  • Describe a two-phase separator
  • Describe a three-phase separator

Course overview

Effective liquid-gas separation is a fundamental step in hydrocarbon production. Operators must produce crude oil free from gas, water, and solid debris to maximize production and prevent problems in downstream process equipment. The Introduction to Process Separators training course describes the types of processes operators and their components. It also explains the principles of operation.

This online course covers two-phase and three-phase separators. It focuses on their operating performance and highlights multi-stage separation. This course is part of the Processes Separators series.
