Truck Unloading

Fluid variations such as changing oil density, water density, temperature and water cut create difficulties in achieving accurate measurements using traditional methods without significant effort and manpower. Spartan’s truck unloading solutions deliver proven results under virtually all process variations. Spartan utilizes reliable and accurate inline measurement technology, along with patented calculations, to provide accurate accounting of oil and water volumes throughout the entire truck unload. Automated switching capabilities based on real-time water cut allow for even further reduction of oil processing costs.

Challenge:

Produced hydrocarbon requires transport by truck when pipeline access is not in place. Custody transfer and government reporting compliance demand a reliable, highly accurate measurement system for volume and water cut measurement. Accurate measurement ensures correct economic accounting, as poor water cut measurement can lead to the payment of oil prices for produced water.

Solution:

Spartan’s truck unloading solutions provide accurate inline measurement for volume and water cut. One customer saved $352 per truck based on $50/bbl oil when their TruckVue system accurately measured the water cut of the entire load versus grab samples.
