Sulzer will be presenting key technology trends and innovations in the energy sector on Stand 6150 at Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) 2019. As a one-stop-shop for advanced components, solutions and services for oil and gas separation processes, the company is leading the industry into the future.
ADIPEC is a forum where business leaders and policymakers can discuss the latest trends in the oil and gas sector as well as shape the future of this industry. Sulzer Chemtech, the leader in separation and mixing technology, will contribute to the discussion by presenting its innovations in the field. These include the company’s comprehensive product, licensing and service offering for the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors.
Of particular interest to visitors will be Sulzer’s increased capabilities in technology licensing and process equipment technology, following the acquisition of GTC Technology, global licensor of process technologies and mass transfer solutions for the oil and gas sector. In this way, customers will benefit from a more comprehensive full-service provider of mass transfer equipment, entire plants and associated services.
Offering the right components for effective separation processes
Sulzer will also showcase its columns and vessels for effective separation in upstream operations. The range of high-performance and high-quality solutions available are being adopted in an ever-growing number of oil and gas fields, both onshore and offshore. Recently, the company has won contracts for the supply of mass transfer equipment in Marjan and Berri Field Development projects in Saudi Arabia.
Two pieces of equipment under the spotlight at ADIPEC 2019 will be Compact Mass Transfer and Inline Separation Technology (cMIST™) systems for natural gas dehydration and electrostatic coalescer internals for vessels (VIEC™) to remove free and emulsified water in oil emulsions. Both solutions outperform conventional technologies, maximizing separation efficiency while substantially reducing equipment footprint.
More than purifying
Attendees interested in optimizing their mixing processes will be able to find out more about Sulzer’s range of static mixers. These allow businesses to obtain highly homogeneous substances with extremely efficient, durable and reliable systems. Consequently, quality and consistency can be achieved with minimal operational and maintenance costs.
Sulzer will also highlight the maintenance, repair and revamp capabilities of its Tower Field Services (TFS) group. This provides round-the-clock support for quick turnarounds and emergency shutdowns. Sulzer’s automated weld overlay technology for example offers a durable and cost-effective method to restore the mechanical integrity of columns and vessels as well as improve their corrosion resistance.
Visitors who want to learn more about Sulzer’s column internal offering for separation processes in oil and gas facilities will be able to experience this via a virtual reality (VR) app. This will allow users to walk around full-scale trays and learn about their capabilities and applications.
