Produced water treatment is needed when gas and oil are extracted from fields that contain water, produced water arises out of the ground. Produced water treatment is the process of extracting excess gas and oil from produced water. In most cases, produced water comes from ancient lake or sea beds, and along with gas and oil, produced water finds its way to the surface.
F&T Water Solutions, an American based water treatment solutions company, has a proprietary Variable Electro Precipitator™ technology that has proven to effectively treat & clean Produced Water. By using an advance form of the Electrocoagulation process for produced water treatment, it has shown to be an extremely cost effective and scalable treatment for the reuse of produced wastewater.
The basis definition of produced water is salty water that is trapped inside of rock. It’s water that is brought to the surface when gas and oil is extracted from the Earth. Effective produced water treatment allows this water to be re-used for additional applications.
A lot of produced water contains minute amounts of chemicals that find their way into the water while it’s still in the ground. Produced water normally exists under high temperatures and pressures. Metals and oil are often found in this water. Before this type of water is disposed of, it must be treated through produced water treatment to avoid environmental & health concerns.
When it comes to producing gas and oil, a major cost is treating the water that rises to the surface. In the beginning, an oil well will likely produce much more oil than water. However, at some point, an oil well begins to produce much more water than oil. This water must be treated and properly disposed of because the process is crucial for successful oil production.
F&T Water Solution, using its proprietary Variable Electro Precipitator™ systems effectively treat & clean Produced Water. Prior to F&T Water Solutions treatment, it’s common for formation water to contain dispersed oil droplets, inorganic materials, dissolved gases, bacteria, solid particles and living organisms. However, the exact concentration of each component varies greatly.
