This is called Choosing a Process 37 a "free water knockout" (FWKO) because it is designed to separate the free water from the oil and emulsion, as well as separate gas from liquid. The choice depends on the expected flowing characteristics of the wells. If large amounts of water are expected with the high-pressure wells, it is possible that the size of the other separators could be reduced if the highpressure separator was three-phase. This would not normally be the case for a facility such as that shown in Figure 2-1 where individual wells are expected to flow at different FTPs.

Selection of Stages As more stages are added to the process there is less and less incremental liquid recovery. The diminishing income for adding a stage must more than offset the cost of the additional separator, piping, controls, space, and compressor complexities. It is clear that for each facility there is an optimum number of stages. In most cases, the optimum number of stages is very difficult to determine as it may be different from well to well and it may change as the wells' flowing pressure declines with time.

By regulating the amount of gas leaving the vapor space, the backpressure control valve maintains the desired pressure in the vessel. If too much gas is released, the number of molecules of gas in the vapor space decreases, and thus the pressure in the vessel decreases. If insufficient gas is released, the number of molecules of gas in the vapor space increases, and thus the pressure in the vessel increases. , which would cause a change in the number of molecules of gas required to fill the vapor space at a given pressure.
