Title
(EN) GATHERING AND SEGREGATION OF HETEROGENEOUS CRUDE SOURCES
(FR) COLLECTE ET SÉGRÉGATION DE SOURCES BRUTES HÉTÉROGÈNES
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods are provided for gathering and segregation of oil extracted from a resource fields with a plurality of disparate sources in relatively close proximity. Instead of assigning a quality and/or destination for crude oil from an extraction source based on the origin of the crude oil, the crude oil can be characterized while still in local storage at or near the wellhead prior to transport to a refinery, a shipping or pipeline terminal, or another type destination for crude oil. Based on the characterization, one or more characteristics of the crude oil can be used to assign the crude oil to one of a plurality of destinations. The crude oil can then be transported to the assigned destination.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de collecte et de séparation d'huile extraite d'un champ de ressources avec une pluralité de sources disparates à proximité relativement étroite. Au lieu d'attribuer une qualité et/ou une destination à une huile brute issue d'une source d'extraction sur la base de l'origine de l'huile brute, l'huile brute peut être caractérisée tout en restant dans un stockage local au niveau ou à proximité de la tête de puits avant le transport vers une raffinerie, un terminal d'expédition ou de pipeline, ou une autre destination de type pour huile brute. Sur la base de la caractérisation, une ou plusieurs caractéristiques de l'huile brute peuvent être utilisées pour attribuer l'huile brute à l'une d'une pluralité de destinations. L'huile brute peut ensuite être transportée vers la destination attribuée.
