Oil & Gas

Filtration in the oil & gas industry covers several important application fields to ensure operational efficiency, equipment protection and environmental compliance. SATI filters and filtration systems represent the technology necessary to guarantee optimal filtration.

Produced Water Treatment

Produced water from oil and gas extraction often contains hydrocarbons, suspended solids and other contaminants. SATI filters are necessary to remove suspended solids before the water can be reused or disposed of.

Injection of Water into Wells

Water injected into wells for reservoir pressure maintenance or for hydraulic fracturing (fracking) must be free of contaminants. Filtration prevents the clogging of rock pores and maintains the effectiveness of extraction operations.

Cooling Systems

Cooling systems, crucial to the operation of multiple pieces of equipment in the oil & gas industry, require clean water to prevent scale and corrosion in heat exchangers and piping. SATI filters in cooling systems ensure the functionality of the equipment.

Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater from production and refining processes must be treated before being discharged into the environment or reused. SATI filtration removes chemical contaminants and solid particles, ensuring wastewater meets environmental regulations.

Seawater Treatment

Seawater used in offshore operations and for plant cooling must be desalinated and filtered to remove suspended solids and other contaminants.

Removal of Suspended Solids

During drilling operations, the water used often contains suspended solids and debris. SATI filtration systems are essential for removing these materials, protecting pumps and other equipment from corrosion and wear. Water filtration is a vital component to ensuring safe, efficient and environmentally compliant operations in the oil & gas industry. SATI filtration systems are essential for maintaining operational continuity and reducing the environmental impact of oil and gas operations.

Compatible filters

All filters can be customized according to customer needs. Customized filtration systems are also designed.

Case History

Water filtration is crucial in the oil & gas industry to protect equipment, improve process efficiency and ensure environmental compliance. In production water treatment, well injection and cooling systems, filtration ensures the water is free of impurities, preventing corrosion, scaling and infrastructure damage. This process is essential for sustainable and responsible oil & gas operations.

Renaissance Heavy Industries with its Japanese partners Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Sojitz, is designing and building the world’s largest gas-to-gasoline (GTG) plant in Turkmenistan. The project is located 50 km from the capital of Turkmenistan Ashgabat.

The complex for the production of high-octane benzene from natural gas has a capacity of 600 Kta Petrol and 100 Kta LPG will be one of the largest and most modern plants in the world. To cool the plant, two cooling towers of 49,000 m3/h and 31,500 m3/h were built. The objectives are to keep the cooling water clean, used to guarantee maximum efficiency of the towers, and reduce water consumption.

The SATI Jumbo Rotor filters were installed in the battery directly after the seacocking work. The filters were made of AISI 316 stainless steel with a sacrificial anode to protect the internal components of the filter from marine corrosion. The entire system filters the flow rate of 1000 m3/h, required 24h/24h.

This configuration allows large volumes of water to be effectively treated, ensuring its suitability for the Oil & Gas sector. The choice of resistant materials and anti-corrosion protection highlight the attention to durability and reliability of SATI filtration systems in demanding environments.
