LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global three-phase separator market in the oil and gas industry report. This research report also lists five prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

Three-phase separators are critical components that need high precision while manufacturing. As a result, the manufacturing process involves high capital cost. This has opened the market to vendors with good experience, budget, and skilled labor.

With the slowdown in the oil and gas industry, the market has become highly competitive, with vendors trying to win all possible contracts. Global oil production levels did not decrease in 2015. Hence, the demand for three-phase separators was constant. “However, with expected decrease in the oil and gas production and stalling of new projects, vendors may face challenging times ahead. Decreasing rig counts are also expected to impact the vendors negatively,” says Vishu Rai, lead analyst at Technavio for oil and gas research.

Alfa Laval

Alfa Laval manufactures products and engineering solutions for the separation, heat transfer, and fluid handling sectors. It offers separators for heat exchangers that are meant for engine cooling and air conditioning, condensers for refrigeration, cleaning fuel and lubrication oils, fresh water generators, and systems for fuel conditioning and fluid handling equipment.

Alfa Laval offers Alfa Laval OFX 20 disc stack centrifuge system. It is a three-phase high-speed centrifugal separator system that is built for removing water and solids from heavy crude oil.

FMC Technologies

FMC Technologies was incorporated in 2000 and is headquartered in Houston, Texas, US. The company manufactures technologically sophisticated systems and products that include subsea production and processing systems, surface wellhead production systems, high-pressure fluid control equipment, measurement solutions, and marine loading system for the energy industry. It operates 24 production facilities in 14 countries.

In the global three-phase separator market, FMC Technologies offers an Inline Subsea Separation Unit, which is developed for Petrobras as a test skid and also as a complete separation module. The inline separation system principle involves the use of continuous water recirculation loop to enhance the separation performance of cyclonic equipment.

Frames Group

Frames Group was founded in 1983 and is headquartered in Zoeterwoude, the Netherlands. The company manufactures oil and gas treatment, separation, heat, and safeguarding applications. It also designs separation treatment and control and monitoring systems. Frames Group also offers total plant solutions and modules for the oil and gas market.

Frames Group offers a diverse range of multiphase separators such as two-phase and three-phase; free water knock out (KO) drum; inlet separator; test separator; knock out drum (KOD); and degasser. The Frames multiphase separator system offers primary separation of other components from the crude oil.


Halliburton was established in 1919 and is headquartered in Houston, Texas, US. The company offers products and services to the upstream oil and natural gas industries worldwide. It serves throughout the lifecycle of the reservoir, right from locating hydrocarbons and managing geological data, to drilling and formation evaluation, well construction, and optimizing production throughout the life of the field.

Halliburton offers surface well testing and three-phase test separators to provide safe and efficient separation. Three-phase separator measures the separation of oil, gas, and water phases produced in the reservoir. It is used for well-testing applications and clean-up operations for stimulated walls.

Its features include exploration and appraisal well testing, clean-up and flowback, production, in-line testing, and extended well testing. It separates well fluids to provide an exact measurement of gas, oil, and water through the Sentry Data Acquisition system and also provides requirements for pressure volume temperature (PVT) sampling.

MI Swaco

MI Swaco operates as a subsidiary of Schlumberger and is involved in hydrocarbon explorations and production services such as extraction and maintenance of parts and equipment. It provides drilling fluid systems, wellbore cleanout, spacers, and displacement chemical systems. The company also offers clear brine fluid systems, vessel cleaning technologies, and filtration equipment and services.

The MI SWACO three-phase separator vessel was developed for land frac flowback and well test operations. The separators include a vessel that is an oil and water flow system, which utilizes electronic gas flow measurement systems and turbine meters.
