  • Produced water treatment technologies

    Abstract Produced water is a complex mixture of organic and inorganic compounds and the largest volume of byproduct generated during oil and gas recovery operations. The potential of oilfield produced water to be a source of fresh water for water-stressed oil-producing countries and the increasing environmental concerns in addition to stringent legislations on produced water discharge into ...

  • Fuel preparation technology – the latest safety considerations

    The specifications for new fuel preparation technologies are becoming increasingly sophisticated, as industry innovation continues apace. But when it comes to investing in waste shredders that help manufacture cement fuels, which criteria should top the procurement wish-list in 2018?

  • Water treatment technology for produced water

    Large amounts of produced water are generated during oil and gas production. Produced water, as it is known in the oil industry, is briny fluid trapped in the rock of oil reservoirs. The objective of this study was to test produced waters from a Montana USA oilfield using a mobile station to design a plant to cost efficiently treat the produced water for agricultural irrigation. We used combined ...

  • Comparing Evaporative technologies for the Recycling of produced Water

    Both multi-stage and MVR evaporators are capable of producing distilled quality water from produced water.  Distilled water quality ranges from 100 to 500 ppm TDS depending upon the initial TDS of the produced water and the level of concentration of bottoms (waste) obtained. Typical systems are capable of attaining final concentrations ranging from 270,000 ppm to 350,000 ppm TDS.  The ...


  • Produced Water Case Study

    Challenge Managing the increasing volumes of produced water associated with oil & gas production as well as sourcing water for operations is becoming more challenging for E&P companies.

  • Produced water at UGS Dolni Dunajovice

    Water is the main contaminant of natural gas. Mostly, it is a natural element of a reservoir content. When dry gas is injected into a reservoir, it absorbs volume of water there. Together with water, it absorbs hydrocarbons, which can be natural elements of the reservoir or of artificial origin and contaminants which were injected in to the reservoir with natural gas. During a withdrawal, this ...

  • BP Schiehallion - produced water degasser

    Client: BP Schiehallion - UK In July 2004 BP was required to take its produced water degasser on the Schiehallion FPSO offline for essential upgrade work. Without a replacement technology BP potentially faced a production shutdown during repairs. CETCO offered its CrudeSep® technology to BP as a temporary degasser vessel. In addition to oil and solids removal the CrudeSep® also acts as an ...

  • Talisman - produced water treatment to <30 ppm

    Client: Talisman Buchan Alpha - UK Following successful trial work, CETCO supplied a single 48” CrudeSep® vessel skid to treat produced water for discharge overboard. Talisman then purchased a second 48” CrudeSep vessel skid to further reduce its overboard oil in water discharges in line with regulations. CETCO’s CrudeSep system treated approximately 12,000 bbls/d of produced water on the Buchan ...

  • Different technology options for monitoring oil in produced water – inline continuous monitoring and IR analysis

    No offshore facility wants to be caught with a sheen around their platform as that can result in a costly fine for exceeding discharge permit limits for oil. Onboard oil in water analyzers are necessary to ensure the oil/water separation systems are functioning properly before overboard disposal of the produced water. Bench top analyzers have traditionally been used to test oil in water although ...
