    Blog: Simplifying Oil and Gas Production Site Installations and Operations

    Consider the flow path of oil & gas production from the well head. The first stop is typically the production separator where the oil, gas, condensation, water, brine and other fluids and sediment get separated. Traditionally, for multi-well sites, there is a test separator so that each well’s production composition can be assessed. In this arrangement the wells are connect to both a test and production manifold...
