  • Comply with Highly Regulated Oil in Water Measurements Using Portable Infrared Analyzers

    The Petroleum Industry – both offshore and onshore -- has regulations that limit the amount of oil in discharged water.  Fixed filter infrared (IR) analyzers have been used to test oil levels in produced water on drilling platforms for over 45 years for a number of reasons. On oil rigs where real estate is at a premium, infrared analyzers such as the Wilks InfraCal TOG/TPH ...

  • Measuring Static Water Levels Made Easier with Eno Scientific

    The Well Sounder 2010 PRO is a sonic water level meter, designed and manufactured by Eno Scientific, to measure static water level in wells, piezometers or boreholes. This portable handheld unit uses sound waves to measure the distance from the top of the well to the water level. This eliminates the need to lower anything into the well. Unlike standard water level tapes these acoustic meters are ...

  • What do oil sands and shale gas have in common? Acute need for sustainable water management solutions

    The world’s appetite for fossil fuels is not abating anytime soon, and the alternatives fall short. Nuclear energy makes people uneasy, coal is perceived as not being that clean, hydroelectric requires massive capital outlays, solar is still improving and the wind just doesn’t always blow. For the foreseeable future, North Americans have embraced the idea that expanded production of ...

  • What the Wastewater Industry can learn from the Petroleum Industry when it comes to measuring oil in water

    I recently read a comment in the Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson that different divisions within a company do just what the name implies—divide a business.  Integration across and communication between the departments was essential to smooth functioning product.  I think the same is true in the analytical analysis/measurement world—there seems to be a divide in ...

  • State of the art treatment for Arsenic, color, and Hydrogen Sulfide - Case Study

    New Arsenic Regulations How meaningful to the average water customer are µg/l or parts per billion? Not very. How about the word “arsenic”? That will ring some bells as the mystery novel poison-of-choice. But with new, lower EPA arsenic standard of 10 ppb that went into effect Jan. 16, cities with ...

  • Triad expedites brownfields redevelopment in Fairbanks

    The Fairbanks North Star Borough (FNSB) used Triad in 2006-2007 to assess environmental conditions at a municipal property along the Chena River in Fairbanks, AK. FNSB accelerated the site investigation as part of a brownfields assessment grant received from the U.S. EPA in 2005. Low-level contamination had been identified onsite in past investigations, but its extent and impact on future ...

  • Danger and Detection of Hydrogen Sulphide Gas in Oil and Gas Exploration and Production

    A rig worker smells rotten eggs near the well head, rubs his itchy eyes as he investigates the frosty pipe connections. After a few moments, he believes all is fine as he no longer smells the tell-tale hydrogen sulphide odour. In this scenario, we can only hope the worker recognises the danger and quickly leaves the site. Oil fields, especially mature ones, can produce hydrogen sulphide gas ...

  • An EHS Checklist for Low-Risk Technology Facilities
