  • Flowback Water Treatment in the Permian Basin: A Pilot Case Study for a Large Oil/Gas Exploration Company

    Produced water from the extraction process of oil and gas reserves, as well as flow back water from hydraulic fracturing operations, must be properly managed in order to mitigate any environmental impacts to existing water supplies caused by oil drilling/fracturing activities. Recent research and data indicate that the amount of produced water from these energy exploration and drilling ...

  • Predicting the Toxicity of Oil-Shale Industry Wastewaters by its Phenolic Composition

    Abstract : The chemical composition and toxicity of five phenolic wastewaters samples collected from the Kohlta-Järve (Estonia) oil-shale industry region were analysed. The total phenolic contents (HPLC data) of these samples ranged from 0.7 mg/l to 195 mg/l. A total of 11 phenol (up to 84 mg/l) and p-cresol (up to 74 mg/l). Artificial phenolic mixtures were also composed, to mimic the ...

  • Microbiotests for the Evaluation of the Pollution from the Oil Shale Industry

    Abstract : In this study a comparative chemical and toxicological analysis of 8 phenolic river water and wastewater samples originating from the Kohtla-Järve oil shale industry region (north-western part of Estonia) was made. The total phenolic content of the samples ranged from 0.01 to 195 mg/l. For 5 wastewaters the corresponding synthetic phenolic analogues were prepared. A battery of ...

  • Massive AMD release sparks collaborative approach to watershed restoration - Case Study

    AN IMPERILED WATERSHED FINDS A FRIEND In the spring of 1994, an illegally-sealed, major underground coal mine blew out a hillside near Albright, West Virginia, pouring millions of gallons of toxic, acid mine drainage (AMD) into a section of nearby Muddy Creek. The release entered the main stem of the Cheat River turning the river orange for miles. The acidic discharge lowered pH levels ...

  • Silica-Very High on OSHA’s Inspection List

    Summary of OSHA Regulation Separate regulations were issued for Construction (29CFR1926.1153) and General Industry/Maritime (29CFR1910.1053). The general provisions to both regulations are generally the same: Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) over an 8-hour shift is 50 mg/M3 of air. Action Level of ...

  • How gas leak detection can save your life

    In any line of work, ensuring the safety and security of the employees is a top priority. This is especially crucial in fields that deal with manufacturing, such as petroleum and chemical refining, as well as food processing. Cleaning, waste handling, and recycling systems also require advanced protective measures. All of these processes make use of fossil fuels like petroleum, oil shales, coal, ...

  • Tubulane-Like Polymer Structures Stop Bullets Better than Solid Materials

    Diamond is the hardest known material. But a lightweight material full of holes is almost as hard as diamonds, as evidenced by the mere dents marked by speeding bullets. Tubulane-like polymer structures created at Rice University were better able to handle the impact of a bullet than the polymer reference cube at the bottom right. The bullet stopped in approximately the second layer of ...

  • How has UF Water Treatment Systems Assisted Oil/Gas Companies

    In the oil and gas industry, water and wastewater treatment comes into play in mining operations and refineries. UF water treatment systems are used in tertiary process applications in these industries to assist oil/gas operators and oil/gas refineries to obtain suitable water for produced water reuse for fracking operations or sustainable discharge. Mining for oil happens both on and off-shore. ...

  • Silica Exposure to Workers in Oil and Gas Hydraulic Fracking

    Exposure to High Levels of Crystalline Silica Silica exposure to workers is nothing new. Also hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” is nothing new either. What’s new is the number of workers exposed to high levels of crystalline silica as the oil and gas “fracking” industry has gone into high gear. The use of a large volume of sand as a proppant—to ...

  • Flare gas mass flow metering innovations promise more economical choices

    INTRODUCTION As the drive towards energy independence in the United States continues at full speed, oil and gas companies are turning to hydraulic fracturing to increase production. Increasingly stringent state and national regulations for flare gas in particular now require the installation of mass flow measurement instruments to measure waste and excess gases burned off as a result ...

  • Advantages of flexible flow measurement in sub-metering of natural gas

    The ability to measure gas flow more accurately with sub-metering based on a new technology, can result in substantial savings. Natural Gas: An Abundant Resource Unlike oil, natural gas exists in abundance in the United States. Of the natural gas consumed in the United States in 2011, 95% was produced domestically. The U.S. Energy Information Administration projects U.S. ...
