  • UV disinfection for enhanced oil recovery and other oilfield applications

    One of the biggest challenges facing oil companies today is how to extract more oil from the discoveries made in the last 40 years. Estimates vary, but approximately 66% of the discovered oil gets left in the ground. The International Energy Agency has estimated that if, in the next 20 years, this figure could be reduced to 50%, then this would increase the world's recoverable oil by 1.2 trillion ...

  • The “Straight Skinny” on bentonite-based drilling muds & their standard practice use in the horizontal remediation well industry

    Let’s make our point up front: 1) bentonite-based drilling fluid is NOT bad for horizontal remediation well (HRW) projects; 2) it does not damage the formation; 3) it is a naturally occurring clay material that is mined; and 4) it does flush easily/adequately during well development. Most remediation professionals have designed and/or installed vertical wells at one time or another ...

  • Free-Product Recovery Methods and Issues

    During my 33 years in the environmental field, I have been involved in a lot of sites with free product.  In the 1980’s light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPL) such as gasoline were removed by the following methods: Bailing with a hand bailer from a well Pumping with a 2 pump system (depression pump and product pump) Pumping with a total fluids pump and separating ...

  • Future-oriented further developments: wastewater heat utilization plants with a return on investment (ROI) of 2 - 6 years

    Sewage is dirty and stinks. Out of sniffing distance – out of mind. Up until the 1980s sewage was taboo and not given the attention it deserves. One cold winter morning in 1988, 23 years ago, Urs Studer stopped beside a steaming manhole cover and wondered how such a source of heat could go untapped. Ever since he has been dedicating himself intensively to the recycling of sewage heat. At ...

  • Control VOC`s in Refinery Wastewater

    Oil and water do not mix, like many of life’s one-liners this statement is basically true but not the whole story. Many hydrocarbon liquids, particularly aromatics, have significant solubilities in water: Benzene 1800 PPMVToluene 470Ethyl Benzene 150Xylenes 150 Petroleum refineries do not like salts in their feedstock since these corrode and foul process equipment. The first refining step is ...

  • Halliburton hunts new bacteria killer to protect Shale-gas boom

    Halliburton Co. and Schlumberger Ltd., trying to forestall a regulatory crackdown that would cut natural-gas drilling, are developing ways to eliminate the need for chemicals that may taint water supplies near wells. At risk is hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a process that unlocked gas deposits in shale formations and drove gains in U.S. production of the fuel. Proposed regulations might slow ...
