Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Oil and Gas Industry

  1. A Fouling-Free Filter For Produced Water
    10/18/2017

    Hydraulic fracturing is a hot-button issue, but no matter where you land you should agree that more efficient produced water filters will go a long way in improving the practice.

  2. Resolving High PH For Mining Operations
    1/29/2014

    For an open-pit taconite mining operation in Minnesota, high pH groundwater required round-the-clock pumping to comply with discharge permit limits. After management installed a control system to neutralize the pH, the treated water leaving the site now meets permit limits. Read this case study to learn more about the installed system and results.

  3. New Tech Offers Low-Energy Oil And Gas Wastewater Management
    12/14/2015

    Microbial capacitive deionization (MCD) shows promise as a sustainable, low-cost treatment solution for produced water.

  4. Report Identifies Ways To Reduce Water Contamination From Oil And Gas Development In Texas
    6/21/2017

    A new report from the Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST) is shedding more light on what we know and don’t know about the potential health and environmental impacts caused by oil and gas development in Texas.

  5. Onshore Crude Oil Decontamination Using A Water Security Test Bed
    11/6/2018

    Onshore crude oil production has increased in the United States over the past few years. Oil producers, specifically the North Dakota Pipeline Authority and the Bakken Shale field producers are transporting crude oil by rail and train to both the East and West Coast oil refineries. While rail tends to be one of the safer and more efficient ways of transporting crude oil, there is still a risk of a spill. Oil spills are threats to both ground and surface waters, which can ultimately impact drinking water.

  6. Power Plant In Puerto Rico Selects FEDI Solution For Water Treatment
    5/19/2016

    The South Coast Steam Power Plant, Puerto Rico, decided to replace an old, antiquated ion exchange-based demineralization plant with a membrane-based demineralization system.

  7. Importance Of Flare Gas Measurement Grows To Meet Environmental Regulations
    12/1/2017

    In the oil and gas industry, regulations and requirements to measure, monitor and report flared gases continue to expand and extend. The U.S. EPA continues to focus on enhancing regulations aimed at reducing emissions of methane and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the environment.

  8. Electrocoagulation Provides Economical Solution To Oil And Gas Waste Problem
    10/4/2016

    A new generation of electrocoagulation-based water treatment has successfully treated wastewater and effluent from a remote onshore natural gas exploration and production project with over three years of continuous operation. To compound the challenges of treating this wastewater and effluent, the unit was required to operate in an extremely environmentally sensitive environment — a pristine tropical rainforest.

  9. How To Select The Right Carbon For Industrial Wastewater Systems
    8/23/2018

    Most industries are required to remove contaminants from wastewater systems before discharge to a receiving stream or municipal facility. Depending on the industry, contaminants may be numerous or difficult to treat. Finding the most effective, cost-efficient treatment method is critical for both business and the environment.

  10. Case Study: New MIOX iAO Technology For Groundwater Remediation At 75% Cost Reduction
    4/25/2014

    Cl₂/UV AOP treatment processes are highly complex and dependent on a number of water chemistry and treatment process parameters. With over three years of direct experience, MIOX is in a unique position to apply its expertise towards customer-specific optimization of Cl₂/UV AOP treatment processes with the goal of reducing costs and improving safety. The use of MIOX’s On-Site generation systems, which produces aqueous chlorine from non-hazardous sodium chloride brine, offers a safer and superior chemical introduction into AOP treatment trains compared to concentrated hydrogen peroxide or bulk hypochlorite.
