The oil and gas industry deals with large amounts of water. In 2009, in the U.S. alone, over 18.9 billion barrels of water were managed in the industry. With hydraulic fracturing (frac) on the rise, water volumes used in the oil and gas industry are increasing, and so is the reuse of produced water in these fracs.

Saudi Aramco has adopted a policy of minimizing its extraction of groundwater and the use (and associated expense) of desalinated seawater for process water use. As an alternative, they are actively investigating sustainable methods and technologies that will allow wastewater reuse, either as cooling water makeup and/or boiler feed water.

There are many approaches to managing sludge and solids from waste streams. Certain STP equipment requires removal of untreated raw solids prior to the treatment unit while others allow the biomasses to build over time, requiring removal of the wastes as a maintenance step. The latter requires extended downtime and loss of treatment capabilities.
By Pentair Porous Media
Pentair Porous Media has worked with a major global oil and gas producer to optimize the performance of the filtration and separation at their United States mid-continent operations located in the Wind River Basin of Central Wyoming.
Analysis of bacteria levels using Hach BARTs provides operators with rapid information about the potential impact of corrosion and bio-fouling that may be taking place as a result of microbial growth in water used to formulate the fracturing fluids.
Amiad automatic self-cleaning screen filters deliver reliable, effective filtration solutions of solids from 3,500 microns to 2 microns in size. Amiad filters have been proven to perform in more than two decades in the oil industry.
More and more, industries are prohibited from discharging any liquid waste originating from their facilities. Aquatech’s innovative Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) technologies help you achieve environmental compliance, reduce your carbon footprint, create positive public perception, and recover high-purity water for reuse.
The ROSS System from Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies is a simplified, yet robust and flexible solution for the treatment of oilfield produced water. Based on CeraMem ceramic membrane technology, this system provides removal of oil and silica as well as softening of the water simultaneously in a fully modular process train.
