Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Oil and Gas Industry

  1. World Water Week: Water Management Key Priority For International Oil And Gas Sector
    8/27/2015

    The global oil and gas industry association, IPIECA coordinated a session during World Water Week in Stockholm on water management within the sector from now to 2030.  

  2. Refinery Expands Production While Meeting Discharge Standards Quality
    8/5/2016

    Petron Bataan Refinery wanted to expand production to process 180 thousand barrels of crude oil per day while changing its feedstock from Arab Light to less costly heavy and sour crudes.

  3. What To Know About The EPA’s New Effluent Guidelines
    8/9/2016

    The U.S. EPA’s recently released Preliminary 2016 Effluent Guidelines Program Plan indicates the industries and pollutants that the agency has its eyes on for potential future regulation.

  4. The Changing Role Of Infrastructure Within The Oil And Gas Industry
    10/13/2016

    The drop in price of a barrel of oil has had an understandable impact on major projects in the oil and gas industry. Three years ago, with crude trading above $100 a barrel, schedule was the overriding priority. As time delays were equated to lost revenue opportunity, there was less attention paid to the ultimate cost efficiency of a major project.

  5. Measuring Flare Gas Within The European Union Emissions Trading Scheme
    12/2/2017

    Flare gas is the name given to the surplus waste gas produced during the extraction of crude oil and the subsequent refining process.

  6. 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.

  7. The Top 3 Treatment Stories Of 2017 And What They Mean For 2018
    1/16/2018

    Last year was full of twists and turns for the drinking water and wastewater treatment industries. What can 2017’s biggest stories tell us about what’s to come this year?

  8. Manipulating Dissolved Gasses With SEPAREL®: Oil & Gas
    2/28/2018

    Degassing applications in the oil industry are numerous; steam is used in nearly all processes for refining oil. Therefore, water must be treated to prevent scale and pipe pitting through the removal of dissolved ions and dissolved gasses such as oxygen and CO2. Boiler feed water for producing steam must also be free of dissolved CO2 and oxygen; SEPAREL® degassing membranes can remove both gasses in a single compact system.

  9. Flow Meter Helps HollyFrontier’s Woods Cross Refinery Measure Flare Gas For Safety And Environmental Compliance
    8/13/2018

    When the plant team at HollyFrontier’s Woods Cross Refinery, near Bountiful, Utah, needed mass flow meters to measure flare gas to the main flare header, the team drew on its past metering experiences for this difficult application.

  10. 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.
