The Application of “Three-Box” Energy Analysis Method on the Combined-Station
Aim at energy consumption for oil production increased year by year and the generally low energy utilization. this paper is based on the model of three-box energy analysis, take the oil gathering and transferring system of the 4th combined-station of Shuguang Oil Production as the object of study, established the "three-box" combinative energy model, analysed and evaluated of its energy usage and found out the weak links of energy usage in the system. The evaluation results indicate that the energy utilization of the 4th combined-station of Shuguang Oil Production system is low, the major parts of energy loss are in a furnace, tanks, pipe network and pumps. The study provides a reliable scientific basis for the energy saving reform of gathering and transferring system of oilfields.
