Sulphate Removal Processes (SRP); Optimum Membrane Protection for the Oil and Gas Production Industry

Effective SRP pre-filtration is critical. SRP failure due to poor pre-filtration equates to no production! Cost of Production Downtime $55/barrel x 125K barrels/day = $6.9 million/day If the SRP module is down due to poor pre-filtration, this will cost the Operator > $286K per hour ! The cost of oil production alone demonstrates the importance of SRP protection via quality cartridge filters. SRP Membrane Protection is Critical 100% membrane uptime must be targeted to maintain …
