The graphics below show examples of dewatering systems used in various operating fields.

Example 1: Dewatering station with produced water desander on Alaska North Slope indoor operation. Dewatering station directly below separation equipment.

Example 2: Dewatering station with produced water desander on European onshore operation. Dewatering bin directly below separation equipment.

Example 3: Dewatering station for produced water desander on U.S. GoM shelf operation. Dewatering bin on deck below and away from separation equipment.
