Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Oil and Gas Industry

  1. Advanced Aeration In Hydraulic Fractured Water Impoundments
    4/6/2015

    With so much attention paid to the fate of frack water — how it’s handled and cleaned — it’s time to consider the effectiveness of prevailing treatment methods.

  2. Fractional Electrodeionization (FEDI) Technology For RO Permeate Polishing And Demineralization
    5/5/2016

    Sabine Pass, a large LNG refinery in the U.S., required a membrane desalination solution to cater to its extensive process water needs in order to produce a large amount of liquefied natural gas for export.

  3. Views From The Top: GE Water CEO On The Future Of Reuse
    7/1/2014

    Speaking on the state of the challenging water/wastewater treatment market — hampered in recent years by slow municipal growth — Heiner Markhoff, a leading voice in the water treatment technology market, sees “light at the end of the tunnel.” Find out why in this exclusive Q&A with Water Online.

  4. Can SNOWater Fix Fracking Treatment?
    12/19/2017

    As the popularity of hydraulic fracturing continues to strain available water supplies, a new technology may be the key to recycling produced water in an affordable way.

  5. State Leaders Concerned About Safety Of Reusing Oil And Gas Wastewater
    8/30/2018

    Regulators from across the country met in Vermont this week at the Environmental Council of the State’s (ECOS) fall meeting to discuss some of the nation’s most pressing environmental challenges. I joined members of ECOS’ Shale Gas Caucus to discuss an emerging threat imminently impacting oil and gas-producing states: the question of what to do with the massive amount of wastewater produced by the oil and gas industry each year.

  6. Sun-Activated LilyPads Remove Contaminants Without Chemicals
    10/24/2014

    Puralytics LilyPads are hardly noticeable in the ponds, lakes, and catchment areas where they are deployed. Made of mesh and plastic, the flat, 1-meter diameter disks could even be confused for their plant namesake if not for their white color.

  7. Treatment Of Produced Water By Electrocoagulation
    2/10/2016

    Produced water (PW) is salty water trapped in the reservoir rock and brought up along with oil or gas during production. It subsists under high pressures and temperatures, and usually contains hydrocarbons and metals. Therefore, it must be treated before being discharged to surface water. Different techniques are being used to treat PW through phase separations, system control and design, and chemical treatments. In this paper, we discuss our experimental results on treating PW through electrocoagulation (EC).

  8. FEDI System Is Key To Long-Term Success Of Plant’s Oil Refining Process
    5/19/2016

    Petrogas LLP, one of the world’s largest oil rehabilitation companies, required demineralized water for a new boiler component to its Turkmenistan refinery.

  9. Level Measurement Of Corrosive Materials With New Radar Antenna
    11/23/2015

    A midstream gathering and processing gas company in the Southern United States processes, treats, and compresses natural gas from a formation rich in hydrocarbons, liquids, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen, and CO2.

  10. The Power Of Reclaimed Water
    9/9/2016

    The population continues to grow, demanding more output from fewer resources. This strain is felt acutely in the power industry. New plants are built to accommodate the growing population’s power needs, requiring more water than ever for power generation and cooling. As freshwater resources continue to dwindle, more plants are turning to reclaimed water.
