Three-Phase VRT Concept

Table of Contents

Type / Description

  • The tankless CPF concept required an innovative design for oil and water VRTs including 3-phase separation features


  • Vessel size already pre-selected by the operator
  • Tight off-taker RVP specs
  • Treated streams pumped from the equipment to the takeaway system with no hold-up tanks in between
  • Provide surge management capabilities
  • Provide three-phase separation features
  • All the above should be achieved with a limited volume vertical configuration vessel

Project Development

  • Three concept designs were developed for each service
  • The operator selected one for each service
  • Special internals were engineered for selected designs
  • I&C and control philosophy was developed to achieve project objectives


  • VRTs fabricated and installed in the project achieved the expected performance
