The next generation sand management

Page last modified
May 11 2023

Stork’s Advanced Online Desanding (AOD) system, now in its 3rd generation, sets a new standard for sand management that is safe, environmentally friendly and cost effective.

AOD removes sand from ‘live’ production separators efficiently and safely avoiding platform shutdown and maintaining production while reducing environmental impact.


Enhanced safety due to absence of confined space entry
Enhanced production due to elimination of sand-induced shutdowns
Sand cleaned and safely returned to sea, reducing environmental impact and avoiding onshore disposal
Shorter turnarounds because desanding is taken out of the turnaround scope
AOD is not suitable for 2 phase gas processing separator


Areas of Application Oil and gas production separators onshore & offshore
Capabilities AOD removes up to 20 tonnes of sand per day from online separators at up to 60 bar pressure and in 90C temperatures.
Certifications / licences DNV, Patent, Calibration certificates
Compliance Oil & Gas Safety Standards, ATEX Zone 2 compliant
