The next generation in sand management
Dealing with contaminated sand build up in separators is an old age problem in need of a new solution. Offshore, sand and salt in vessels reduces efficiency, corrodes equipment and can lead to production loss. Traditional desanding methods often involve platform shutdown and dangerous, back-breaking work. But, Stork has a smarter solution...
How we add value
No lost production
Sand removed and cleaned from live separators without causing undue process disturbance or production loss, ready for safe overboard discharge.
Minimises shutdown costs as workscopes are delivered more quickly compared with traditional methods, which can take up to 7 days.
Preventative approach to sand management eliminates unplanned shutdowns and reduces downtime.
Replaces traditional confined space entry which involved significant physical exertion and exposure to harmful chemicals for operatives.
AOD ensures offshore sand disposals are in line with environmental discharge limits while eliminating the cost of onshore waste clean-up.
