A new, compact oil/water separation unit from Siemens for the offshore oil and gas industry cuts residence time necessary for separation by 80% or more, relative to standard flotation systems. The new Vorsep system incorporates several methods for removing oil from produced and wastewater streams before discharge, reuse or injection. The unit reduces inventoried water in the system and is thus compact and lightweight, ideally suited for offshore applications where footprint and weight are critical.
