Seneca Resources Recycles Oil-Field Produced Water With Eco-Tec's RecoPur® Treatment System Case Study


The Bakersfield, California area is known for its heavy oil deposits, many of which require the injection of steam into the ground to allow the viscous oil to flow and be extracted through wells. Eco-Tec’s RecoPur® produced water treatment system consists of conventional oil/water separation equipment, followed by the Spectrum Plus Micro Media Filter™ for the removal of impurities and insoluble oil. These impurities must be removed prior to recycling the water for reuse in the generation of steam to be injected into the ground.
