Paper 25 Produced Water Treatment to Meet Current and Future Environmental Standards

Abstract

Increasing concern over the potential toxicity of produced water has led to development of new methods of treatment, both of individual pieces of equipment and overall process trains, to meet higher water quality standards required either for discharge to the environment or under-ground disposal.

The paper describes the various quality standards to be achieved, the new equipment and processes available to meet these standards (from a consultant and user viewpoint rather than a manufacturer's) and new techniques for monitoring water quality. The paper considers not only free oil-in-water but also dissolved hydrocarbons, heavy metals, radioactive elements etc.
