Back Pressure Regulator for Carbonated Water Flooding

  • carbonated water

Researchers at the Technical University of Delft in The Netherlands are exploring a novel method of using Carbonated
Water Flooding to increase the amount of oil that can be recovered from sandstone reservoirs and to improve the environmental impact and safety of the oil extraction process. As part of this endeavor, they used an Equilibar® back pressure regulator that is able to withstand harsh process fluids and operate in the high pressure range while also holding pressure at low flow to practically zero flow rates.

Earlier this month, I got a nice surprise in the mail—a plaque from the Federal Laboratory Consortium recognizing Equilibar’s collaboration with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) to develop emergency ventilator technology. The plaque brought back many memories. Just one year ago, as COVID was quickly becoming an international crisis, the Equilibar team was working long Read More
