Test Separators - Fabrication Services

TransTech Fabrication designs and fabricates top quality test separators for effectively separating well fluids into gas, oil, water (three-phase test separator) or gas, oil, water and sand (four-phase test separator) for both land and offshore applications.

Backed by decades of experience serving oil and gas markets and formidable well testing expertise, our precision engineered and fabricated test separators provide efficient, accurate results for all applications, including exploration and appraisal, well testing, development well testing (and cleanup) as well as flowback testing for new completions and throughout production.

Collecting accurate data (flow rates, reservoir pressure, gas/oil ratio, permeability, heterogeneities, discontinuities, connectivity and other measurements) is critical to determining the size and boundaries, structure and characteristics, and ultimately assessing the overall production potential—and ongoing performance—of your reservoir.

With the right data, you’ll be equipped to make the most effective choices regarding well completion design and drilling, equipment sizing and production facility planning, as well as other important decisions to optimize the performance of your well—and maximize your ROI.

Test separator operating parameters vary in accordance with fluid type and flow rates.  Determining the correct pressure, fluid levels and retention time within the vessel in addition to regulating temperature (controlled upstream from the separator) are all critical factors in achieving optimal separation.

We offer custom test separators in both horizontal and vertical orientation, constructed to your exact specifications, tailored to your unique reservoir conditions.  Let our experienced team of fabrication experts provide end-to-end delivery of your test separator including engineering, design, fabrication and test, delivery and installation—within the shortest possible lead times—for seamless project execution and fast start-up.
