COSTACURTA’S 4-STEPS APPROACH TO OPTIMISING SEPARATION PROCESSES

In a situation where the Oil&Gas sector is being increasingly impacted by the ongoing energy transition, on one hand the leading players have to find solutions to produce clean energy and, on the other hand, they have to meet the world’s immediate energy requirement. For this reason, the efficiency of plants, whether revamped or new (greenfield), has to be maximised and the emissions generated minimised as far as possible.

In this context, Costacurta, based on its 70 + years of experience in the field is able to support its customers in optimising gas-liquid and liquid-liquid separation processes in order to achieve their separation targets while minimising weights and sizes and, therefore, their CAPEX and OPEX. Optimising separation processes by reducing the size of the vessel (in greenfield projects) and improving the plant’s overall efficiency (in both greenfield and revamping projects) can contribute to the reduction of the plant’s overall CO2 emissions.

      PROJECT MANAGEMENT

      Thanks to their technical know-how and the long-standing experience of project management, our PMP® certified Project Managers are single reference points for customers throughout the various steps of the project: from the feasibility study, design, construction and supervision during installation of the components in the plant through to the resolution of separation problems and replacement over the years.

      CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT OF PRODUCTS AND CALCULATION PROGRAMMES

      Costacurta invests in the continuous improvement of its internals and calculation programmes, working alongside universities and research centres.
      The company has worked with the University of Bologna for many years with the aim of improving the separation efficiency of its internals through laboratory tests and process simulations.

      It also takes part in the Separation Technology Research (STAR) program joint industry project led and administered by the Southwest Research Institute in Texas aimed at systematically testing separation equipment and increasing fundamental knowledge in phase separation. Participating companies include operators, contractors and equipment manufacturers and meet on a regular basis to discuss common needs, available technologies, and new developments in order to identify improvements in existing technologies or gaps that can lead to the development of new technologies.
