Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Oil and Gas Industry

  1. Breakthrough Technology Is Good For Fracking — And The Environment
    12/1/2014

    The Department of Energy (DOE) is funding a demonstration project that remediates acid mine drainage water, providing both source water and useful byproducts for hydraulic fracturing operations.

  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. FEDI Solution For Sohar Refinery Project
    1/1/2016

    Orpic (Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company) required a thermal seawater desalination solution as part of its Sohar refinery improvement project to ensure an uninterrupted supply of fresh feed water to for its boilers.

  4. 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.

  5. Silver Eagle Refinery Case Study
    12/22/2011
    North Salt Lake and West Bountiful are home to several large oil refineries. These large plants have several smoke stacks, open burning flares, and round storage tanks.
  6. Has Fracking Gone ‘Green’?
    6/6/2014

    There are few topics more controversial these days than hydraulic fracturing ("fracking"). While the debate rages on as to whether fracking poses a risk to water quality, a new desalination technique addresses two other environmental concerns: water scarcity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Developed by researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC), the breakthrough technology uses excess carbon dioxide created in the fracking process to desalinate the process water, making it available for water reuse. It also generates chemicals — hydrochloric acid and carbonate salts — that are valuable for many industrial applications.

  7. 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.

  8. 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors Remove Dissolved Gases From Water In Many Hydrocarbon Recovery And Process Applications
    11/26/2013

    The oil and gas industry has utilized various deaeration technologies for many years to remove dissolved gases, particularly oxygen, from injection water. Minimizing the environmental impact, improving operating efficiency, avoiding process issues and protecting system components are just a few of the reasons degassing is necessary in many hydrocarbon recovery and water processes.

  9. Technology Qualification Of 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors For Deoxygenation Of Low Salinity Water For Polymer Flooding
    7/11/2017

    The use of low salinity water in Enhanced Oil Recovery processes has been a recent topic of discussion. The potential to increase recovery rates by altering the reservoir characteristic from an oil-wet to a water-wet state, along with potential cost savings, has garnered attention in recent years.

  10. Profit Potential Of Industrial Wastewater In The Circular Economy
    12/11/2017

    In the midst of a global water crisis, industries today too often overlook a river of revenue opportunity: their own wastewater.
