Your professional source of objective, independent,
and unbiased design assistance in 2014 when
you want to achieve exceptional processing results.
At HTC we engineer and design complete production and salt
water disposal facilities each and every day. We also design
the many individual components of production process facilities
day in and day out. We start with key details like proper
sizing, ideal flow characteristics, hydraulic efficiency,
lower friction losses, and ideal flow rates. We wrap them
in comprehensive but affordable design packages. The results
speak for themselves.
HTC’s intellectual properties, application engineering,
and hands-on experience are our success and yours. Our several
patents (six issued, three more pending) will complement
our engineering expertise in 2014, and combine with the
21st century technologies from partner and affiliate firms
to produce superior results for you.
HTC is well known for its design acumen. Its patented HWSB™
Skim Tank and DFSD™ Desanding Tank are now industry standards.
Each DFSD™ protects more plants from solids buildups every
day. Each HWSB™s recovers more oil, and produces far superior
water quality than any API Gunbarrel. Every one of our SWD
plant designs includes at least one HWSB™ Skim Tank, so
in 2014 there are over 500 of them increasing oil recovery
rates in applications from south Louisiana to Calgary! While
older plants boast of 0.25% to 0.4% oil recovery rates HTC’s
plants recover from .75% up to 4% and average about1.5%
oil recovery because of our solid engineering. In a 10,000
b/d SWD plant that translates to added cash flow totaling
more than $3.4 million … each and every year!
At HTC we consider Gunbarrels to be obsolete. They were
never intended for high water cut applications. Our HWSB™
is designed for those applications.
In low water cut applications
conventional Gunbarrel designs are now replaced by HTC’s
21st century HEGB™ Gunbarrel. This smaller, more efficient
Gunbarrel design outperforms conventional API Gunbarrels.
Proven in applications from west Texas to western India,
the HEGB™ is simply amazing!
These and other HTC systems are
standards of today’s oil industry, eliminating carryover,
clarifying water, splitting flow, de-sanding inlet fluids,
and putting the very last drop of oil in the sales tanks
… where it belongs!
Our patents, proprietary technologies,
partner affiliations, and fifty years of hands-on experience
assure you that you get more than your money’s worth when
you choose to work with HTC.
Systems that Put More Oil in your Sales Tank (and more money
in your account)!
With the price of oil at or near
$100/barrel you want to keep and sell every drop of your
oil. Our systems are designed to make this happen for you.
HTC’s patented HWSB™ Skim Tanks
are working hard to recover more oil in over 500 applications
in 2014. The HWSB™ is the most efficient atmospheric oil-water
separation system there is. The same is true of the HEGB™
crude oil dehydrator. Each HEGB™ produces pipeline oil quality
while the downstream HWSB™ clarifies water to injection/disposal
quality. These systems put more oil in your sales tank,
and send better quality water to your water plant!
HTC’s designs are fabricated by
a group of qualified firms. To insure quality, HTC has prequalified
only the most reputable USA fabricators. Internationally,
we provide complete fabrication packages so qualified international
fabricators can provide our systems anywhere on Earth.
HTC’s systems has a record of outperforming
facility owner’s expectations!
