Treating Completion Fluids

An oil company had employed CETCO Oilfield Services to treat their well flow back fluids on several occasions. Since our highly specialized equipment and personnel had proven successful time and time again, when the oil company completed two more wells, they once more turned to CETCO Oilfield Services to treat the completion fluids.

The two wells produced 2,790 BBL of completion fluids, which CETCO Oilfield Services treated, discharging the clean water directly into the Gulf of Mexico. The data in Chart 1 is from the completion fluids treatment project and is typical of what CETCO Oilfield Services can achieve.

CETCO Oilfield Services received fluids from the structure’s test separator. The fluids were routed into CETCO’s 120 BBL Sparging Separation Tank for initial treatment. Specialists then pumped the fluids from the separation tank to CETCO’s RFV 2000 filtration skid containing radial flow canisters filled with CETCO Oilfield Services’ patented CrudeSorb® media. Static sheen tests were conducted throughout the project, and the treated water continuously passed the tests. Overboard samples tested by an independent lab were also performed on the treated water and all readings were well below the discharge criteria. The clean water was then discharged directly into the Gulf of Mexico from CETCO’s equipment.
