The upstream oil and gas industry revolves around wells: where to locate them, how deep and how far to drill them, and how to design, construct, operate, and manage them to provide the highest possible return on investment with the lightest, safest, and lowest operational footprint.

  • Exploration: The Search for Oil and Gas
  • Drilling: Getting To The Reserves
  • Production: Getting Hydrocarbons Out To The Surface

Exploration and Production is another name for the upstream oil and gas sector (E&P). Oil and gas resources, as well as the process of drilling wells, make up the majority of exploration.

The wells are subsequently being operated for the production of crude oil and unprocessed natural gas. This market sector includes Wet Gas Measurement, Multiphase, Custody, and Allocation Metering.

To meet the needs of this market, Brother Filtration offers a variety of products, including filter cartridges, filter housings, and filter tanks.

  • Gas Lift
  • Separators
  • Wet Gas and Multiphase Solutions
  • Water Treatment

Prefiltration for upstream in oil & gas industry

For upstream oil and gas applications, Brother Filtration’s highly sophisticated filtration products deliver premium filtration performance.

Produced water is frequently designated for disposal, but in order to comply with rules, it must first meet cleanliness standards.

Filtration of generated fluids is essential to ensuring the continuation of disposal activities. Water and solid impurities in natural gas condensate pose serious threats to the equipment and pipelines further downstream.

Effective elimination of these pollutants is necessary to stop equipment eroding and corroding and to reduce expensive operational interruptions for maintenance tasks.

We have created efficient and dependable filtration solutions for upstream oil and gas applications that improve contaminant removal, enable compliance with fluid cleanliness regulations, extend the life of capital equipment, and minimize maintenance downtime for noticeably better business performance.

In order to maintain effective and dependable operations, the production of natural gas condensate and generated water in the upstream oil and gas industry offers filtration problems that must be solved.

Ineffective filtration of impurities like solid particles can have expensive negative effects including prolonged operational downtime, capital equipment maintenance or replacement, or legal troubles due to incorrect filtration of produced water utilized for disposal.

For many years, process reliability has been an important performance component, and for good reason. As equipment repairs frequently take longer than anticipated and lost production numbers continue to climb, the financial effects of process downtime can be enormous.

It has been demonstrated that using high-performance filtration systems can reduce operational downtime by preventing corrosive and erosive solid and liquid pollutants from getting into downstream equipment that is sensitive.

Additionally, the benefits of efficient and dependable filtering are compounded by the improvement in oil refining processes’ efficiency due to the higher purity of feed streams.

Environmental laws are becoming more stringent, particularly in regard to water quality. The price of non-compliance in this area can be high, including potential legal consequences and government fines.

To reduce these expensive hazards, high-performance filtration of produced fluid makes sure that cleanliness standards are fulfilled and surpassed.

Filtration in enhanced oil recovery

Primary production can start after a well has undergone hydraulic fracturing. A producing well’s natural crude oil recovery without the use of artificial techniques or enhanced oil recovery is referred to as primary production (EOR). In later stages of the well or reservoir life, EOR stimulation procedures are used to recover hydrocarbons.

As a result of natural pressure decline over time and a decrease in the oil slate at well locations, this increases the amount of oil that can be gained.

There are several methods employed, including chemical flooding, immiscible gas injection, miscible gas injection, thermal recovery, and water flooding.

Water Injection also referred to as waterflood, is a secondary EOR-producing method. Both onshore and offshore developments employ the Water Injection method.

After the first stage of oil production is complete, water injection is used to replace lost pressure into a reservoir or well base.

For precise, high-quality, and high-purity of liquids for well water injection, Brother Filtration serves you for high standard filter cartridge and filter housing products.

The high demand for this application requires a perfect filtration treatment for the water that is injected back into the ground.

If you are in this industry and have a filtration problem, Brother Filtration would be a nice choice for you to help you face the challenge.

What Brother Filtration can do in this procedure?

To safeguard the final purity of your product while safeguarding the protection of your equipment, you must separate liquid aerosols from your process gas streams.

By assuring the functionality and durability of your equipment, the appropriate process solution can also help you save money over the long run on maintenance and operational expenses.

Brother Filtration’s market-leading filtration systems remove oil and particles from water streams to either comply with environmental regulations or injection well standards.

Our innovations include oil adsorptive guard filters, high-efficiency coalescers, and disposable and washable solids cartridge solutions.

Brother Filtration designs and manufactures filter cartridges and filter housings which are suitable for this application. Our Oltek pleated filter cartridge and Oltek string wound filter cartridge are perfect solution for this condition.
