Cost Comparisons

Cost data are sparse but some information produced by BP about five years ago has been recast on Table 6 in terms of ratios. The flow rate used for deriving the information was applicable to a field producing about 16000 m3 per day of oil.

Table 6 shows that both the capital and running costs increase in the sequence hydrocyclone-IGF-fil-ter/coalescer-centrifuge. Hydrocyclones also produce the most compact plant and are the least sensitive to orientation or lateral acceleration as encountered in installations on a floating base.
