Separators 

separator-nobackground.pngSeparators are vessels for the bulk removal of liquids or solids by gravity.

Operators prefer to utilize a horizontal separator over other separators when the well streams have large liquid to gas ratios, constant flow, and small liquid surge characteristics (high liquid/ gas). Other reasons could be when work areas have vertical height limitations or horizontal separators are smaller and less expensive than vertical separators for a given gas capacity or well streams experiencing foamy production for well streams requiring three-phase separation applications with more efficient liquid-liquid separation.
