  • Algae Control in Lakes and Reservoirs

    There are plenty of harmful algal bloom related cases worldwide but what is evident is that their number elevates with each year. Excessive cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and green algae growth in a water reservoir can have negative consequences for the water quality. The water turns green, sand filters can clog, and some algae can produce geosmins and MIB, giving the water an ...

  • MEG energy corporation – christina lake project produced water softening system

    The Facility The Christina Lake Regional Project is centrally located among the main commercial “it situ” oil sands developments of the Canadian Athabasca oil sands region. The reservoir has been estimated to contain over 6 billion barrels of bitumen in place and approximately 2.8 billion barrels of recoverable resources. The Problem The hot ...

  • Produced water recovery at Seneca Resources using short bed ion exchange

    As a result of water restrictions in the Bakersfield, California area Seneca Resources has installed a new produced water recovery system. The paper reviews this process, which consists of water knock out and clarification tanks, an IGF unit, a specialized nutshell filter, and a short bed ion exchange softener that is regenerated with salt. The water being treated has a TDS level of 4,000 - ...

  • In the World: Small Mexican village produces clean water with solar-powered system

    MIT-developed system runs autonomously, producing 1,000 liters per day. In a small village deep in the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula — a day’s drive from any source of clean, drinkable water — researchers from MIT are testing a system that purifies water with the help of the sun. The relatively inexpensive system consists of several modest photovoltaic panels, a large ...

  • Applications Report Presented at the Produced Water Society Seminar 2013

    “Performance Testing of Micro Media and Conventional Filters operating on Heavy Oil Produced Water in the San Joaquin Valley (California)”,  an application note, was presented by Michael Dejak and Michael Sheedy at the 23rd Annual Produced Water Society Seminar taking place in Houston, TX, this past January.

  • Treatment of oil-field produced water by combined process of Anaerobic Baffled Reactor (ABR)-Biological Aerated Filter (BAF): a pilot study

    The combined process of Anaerobic Baffled Reactor (ABR) and Biological Aerated Filter (BAF) was used to treat the oil-field produced water. The experimental results showed that for ABR the removal efficiency of oil and COD was 84.5%, 40.8%, respectively, and the ratio of BOD5/COD of the effluent increased 24.8% when the flow rate was 0.3 m³/h. For the BAF, when the hydraulic loading rate was ...

  • Filter backwash water treatment options

    Filtration acts as the final step in the removal of suspended matter and protozoa. The accumulated residue is removed during the backwash process and any subsequent recycling of filter backwash water could potentially re-introduce these contaminants into the main treatment process. By separating the filter backwash water from the main treatment process, factors that could interfere with the ...

  • Filter aids

    Filter aids are used to assist filtration of colloids, extra fine particles, gel like, and highly compactible materials, which are difficult to be filtered due to low filtrate rate, unacceptable filtrate clarity, high cake moisture content, or serious filter medium clogging. They can be used as “precoat” on the surface of filter media or in conjunction with feeding suspension as ...

  • Field-Proven Removal of Dissolved Hydrocarbons from Offshore Produced Water by the Macro Porous Polymer-Extraction Technology

    At the moment there are no field proven technologies available to remove dissolved hydrocarbons (aliphatics and mainly aromatics) from produced water on offshore platforms.
