How Rocsole's Technology Improves Oil & Gas Processes?
Oil & gas companies face new challenges on daily basis. Whether it is in downstream, upstream or subsea, overcoming these challenges costs time, money and resources. Although production is at an all-time high, multiple factors create a demand for precise process control and quality management. Challenges posed by deposition, emulsion and flow monitoring – including water cut – are not something operators should take lightly.
That's where our technology comes into play.
Rocsole's field-proven tank, separator and pipeline solutions have succesfully tackled all kinds of real challenges in oil & gas industry around the world. Utilizing the famous See Beyond technology and hardened mechanics, Rocsole's devices thrive on solving difficult problems in extreme and hazardous conditions.
Tank Profiling Made Safe and Easy
Figuring out the actual contents of a tank is a difficult job and very hazardous one to boot. Nucleonic devices are difficult to handle and operate safely and require a lot of administrative work. Manual sampling is time-consuming and H₂S can make it downright dangerous.
Tomographical solutions are a perfect fit for tank profiling. Not only it can accurately measure and locate oil, water, emulsion, sands and solids, its accuracy isn't affected by contamination, and tt doesn't require extensive administrative work or specialized training like nucleonic devices do.

Accurate Emulsion Measurement In Separators
Separators are fairly simple parts of the process, but let's face it, they do fail. Main cause for separator failures? Level instrumentation. Conditions inside multiphase separators can be pretty extreme. Relatively high temperatures, high pressure, various layers of different mediums – including sand and sludge – and plain old wear and tear cause problems for traditional instrumentation.
Our profiler can handle sand and sludge while providing a full profile of the separator, including froth, emulsion and a rag layer, to operators and automation in real time, a huge asset in optimizing residence time and demulsification. It can also help to tackle the most common performance impediments in separators by detecting foaming, paraffin and sand.

Measure Deposition and Water Cut in Pipelines
Deposition yields nothing but unnecessary expenses. It degrades pipeline performance. Preventing it with anti-scalant overdosing is expensive. Removing it by pigging is expensive. And if the anti-scalants fed to the pipeline weren't enough and a cleaning pig becomes stuck in the pipeline, the costs reach a whole new level. And if we're talking about a subsea pipeline, the cost of remedying the issue becomes astronomical as it disrupts the operations for extended periods of time.
But even a healthy, well-performing pipeline can bring unforeseen problems by carrying something that isn't really wanted: water. Water cut measurement in stratified multiphase flow can fool traditional water cut measuring equipment, and if deposition is present, it becomes almost impossible. Rocsole's tomographical pipeline solutions are not affected by deposition or stratified flow, and provide real-time data to the operators.
