Produced Water Treatment From Siemens
Produced water is generated in the process of lifting oil and gas from water-bearing formations–typically sea or lake beds. As oil and gas is lifted to the surface, water is brought along with it. This water must be treated prior to discharge or re-injection.

Queensland, Australia Coal Seam Methane Gas Wellhead Automation Success Story
Queensland, Australia's second largest state, covers approximately 1,700,000 km2 (656,000 sq. mi.) and is home to more than 3,000,000 inhabitants. It also contains extensive energy supplies in the form of Coal Seam Gas, or CSG.
Liqui-Cel® Membrane Contactor Technology Being Evaluated For Dissolved Gas Removal From Water In Many Hydrocarbon Processes
The oil and gas industry has utilized various deaeration technologies for many years to remove dis-solved gases, particularly ox-ygen, from in-jection water. Minimizing the environmental impact, improving operating efficiency, avoiding process issues and protecting system components are just a few of the reasons degassing is necessary in many hydro-carbon recovery and water processes.
Case Study: Centrica British Gas
British Gas (part of the Centrica group) is the largest energy supplier to Britain’s domestic and business market segments. Operating under the British Gas brand (Scottish Gas in Scotland), the company provides gas and electricity services to 15.7 million residential accounts and over one million small and medium business (SMB) and enterprise business users.

Produced Water Filtration Case Study
Pentair has worked with a major global oil & 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.
Deepwell Filter Leaf Upgrade Case Study
This is a plant that collects waste water from plant processes and run-off in a large storage tank that is treated with sufidic caustic. The conventional process utilized DE as a precoat for the filtetr to assist in facilitating the separation of solid contaminates. This process is to prevent contamination of the down hole formations of the deep well injection system where the waste water is ultimately sent. After the filter leaf vessel, the water is then sent to tertiary vessels using string-wound cartridges for final solids removal before being disposed of via deep well injection.
Unconventional Oil And Gas Development - Key Environmental And Public Health Requirements
As with conventional oil and gas development, requirements from eight federal environmental and public health laws apply to unconventional oil and gas development. For example, the Clean Water Act (CWA) regulates discharges of pollutants into surface waters.

WELL COMPLETION ABOUT DOCUMENT
Well completion is a process that takes place after a oil or gas well has been verified to be commercially viable. Well completion involves casing, temperature and pressure evaluation and equipment installation to allow gas or oil drilling. Completion therefore has to wait for formation testing after a design well depth has been established. The specific activities involved in well completion include; drill stem tests (DST), production casting, production tubing installation, production flow commencement and installation of beam pumping units.
Drill stem tests have to be conducted to determine production formation potential. The DST experts use appropriate tools lowered into the bottom of the drilling hole to establish the formation potential. Adjustments are made to the tool to establish if the pressure is sufficient for production. This process should be left to the professional crew as hazards such as getting stuck by the test tool in floor testing. Exposure to h2s and other gases as well as blowouts are other hazards that only professional crews know how to deal with.
Production tubing installation is the other process involved in well completion. Small diameter tubing is more preferred to the larger ones in mining. Using couplings, individual tubing is joined to form a tubing string. The tubing that is to be used in mining is made using power tongs. With the advancement in technology, tubing can be made in the form of a continuous coil.
The final step in well completion is the initial production flow. Brine or water is injected into the well to remove the drilling fluid. This should be enough to initiate the flowing of the well. In the event that the well fails to flow under such circumstances, unloading or high pressure gas injection might be necessary. Caution should be taken since blowouts might occur if the well pressures happen to be charged.
