Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Oil and Gas Industry

  1. New Technologies Set To 'Disrupt' The Industry
    2/24/2014

    For the unfamiliar, the term “disruptive technology” initially sounds quite bad, as though it describes something that gets in the way. Far from impeding progress, however, disruptive technologies actually accelerate progress exponentially by disrupting the status quo. Think personal computers vs. mainframes, or cell phones vs. land lines.

  2. How To Reduce Methane Emissions With Thermal Mass Flow Meters
    2/18/2016

    The flare gas discussion is heating up again. According to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S. oil production is at an all-time high, and so are the harmful methane emissions from leaks, flaring and venting.

  3. Deploying Software-Based Emission Monitoring Systems For Refining Processes
    7/13/2015

    In the process industries, legal requirements regulate the continuous acquisition of emission data to monitor and control pollutants released into the atmosphere. Data verifies that plant emissions do not exceed law-enforced thresholds. From a plant owner's perspective, it's important that efficient and reliable tools for acquiring emission data are available. Typical plant continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS) are essentially hardware-based.

  4. Drought Forum Webinar: The Growing Demand For Re-Used And Brackish Water
    5/7/2015

    The Western Governors' Drought Forum webinar “Once Marginal, Now Crucial: The Growing Demand for Re-used, Produced, and Brackish Water” explores the technological and regulatory obstacles to utilizing re-used, produced, and brackish water.

  5. 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.

  6. Saving Oil And Gas: Improving Profit Margins In Down Times With Innovative Water Management
    5/31/2016

    With oil prices depressed, exploration and production companies unearth the money-saving opportunities in water management planning.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. A Fracking Coverup?
    1/17/2013

    I’m not inclined to pick on the EPA, but in the wake of the recent report that they overstepped their authority on stormwater regulation, I saw that The Associated Press did an exposé charging the EPA with suppressing information on hydraulic fracturing’s link to drinking water contamination.

  10. IDE Showcases Evaporator For SAGD Water Treatment In Canada
    5/5/2015

    IDE recently hosted exclusive guided tours of its horizontal falling film evaporator for SAGD water treatment at the fabrication shop in Calgary, Alberta. Over three days more than 120 industry professionals had the opportunity to experience IDE's SAGD Horizontal Evaporator first hand.
