  • Technology Qualification Of Liqui-Cel® Membrane Contactors For Deoxygenation Of Low Salinity Water For Polymer Flooding
    Technology Qualification Of Liqui-Cel® Membrane Contactors For Deoxygenation Of Low Salinity Water For Polymer Flooding

    Polymer flooding using low salinity water has been shown to improve oil reservoir recovery rates by altering the reservoir characteristic from an oil-wet state to a water-wet state. It has also been shown to be cost competitive with other Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes. The combined cost savings and increased recovery rate have prompted a lot of attention in the polymer flooding process with low salinity water in recent years.

  • Thermal Mass Flow Meter Helps Mud Logging Contractor Meet U.S. EPA Flare Gas Emissions Monitoring Requirements
    Thermal Mass Flow Meter Helps Mud Logging Contractor Meet U.S. EPA Flare Gas Emissions Monitoring Requirements

    Upstream oil/gas production companies around the globe depend on mud logging service companies to analyze mud samples that help them maintain the correct direction for their drilling field operations. In mud logging, samples of rock cuttings from bore holes are brought to the surface by recirculating drilling media (mud) for analysis by a mobile laboratory to determine the lithology and fluid content of the sample.

    How To Fix High pH And Comply With The Clean Water Act

    When the Clean Water Act was enacted, one of the intentions of this legislation was to reduce the untreated industrial waste water burden on publically owned waste water treatment plants (POTW) so that industrial wastewater would only load the treatment plant to the same extent as ordinary household sanitary waste. Industrial facilities that generated process wastewater had to begin pre-treatment of the water before it could be returned to the local POTW.
