Because of the huge increase in U.S. natural gas production, there is elevated concern over the production of water that occurs in natural gas and oil fields. These concerns have led to additional state and federal regulations for low emission combustion technology and how companies will deal with produced water. ABUTEC’s high temperature enclosed combustors meet state and federal regulations for burning waste gas at a minimum of 99% destruction and removal efficiency (DRE), meaning almost 100 percent of the vapor to be destroyed is converted to CO2 and water. These combustors are of high quality, flexibility, low emissions, CSA-approved and able to burn very low calorific gas. Additionally, when combined with a heat exchanger, the unit can evaporate the excess produced water eliminating the need for expensive trucking or disposal.

Measuring the oil content in water or soil is a specialty of Wilks Enterprise. InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers provide on-site ppm measurements to help ensure upstream or downstream wastewater complies with discharge permits to avoid potentially costly fines. There are over 3,000 InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers in operation today around the world measuring the oil and grease levels in produced water on drilling platforms, oil content in FRAC water, hydrocarbons in wastewater effluents from refineries, and TPH in soil at remediation sites.

The upstream oil and gas industry is increasingly becoming a water management industry. Globally, three barrels of water is extracted for every one barrel of oil produced. With effective management, this produced water can become a source of value, as disposal options become limited and environmental regulations tighten. New water treatment technologies will allow this water to be reused in waterflooding, enhanced oil recovery and hydraulic fracturing operations, in a market worth $5.2 billion in 2014. Managing the water used and extracted from unconventional resources, such as shale gas, tight oil, coalbed methane, heavy oil, and oil from ultra-deepwater offshore fields, will be a fast growing segment of this market. This section shows you in detail the different opportunities and strategies for these resources.
