Mobile Water and Wastewater Treatment
Solutions for the Downstream Oil and Gas Industry
Temporary mobile water and wastewater treatment services offer an optimal solution for diverse process stages within industrial oil and gas plants. They provide a reliable and secure source of treated water 24/7, 365 days a year.
As more industrial operators seek to enhance water management strategies, optimizing treatment processes has become crucial for maintaining competitiveness in the industrial sector.
Diverse Water Needs in Oil and Gas Operations
Water flow rates and required quality in the oil and gas industry are varied, depending on specific operations like Exploration and Drilling, Fracking, Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), and Refining and Processing. Water consumption varies significantly, reflecting the complexity and scale of each process. Flow rates can range from hundreds to thousands of cubic meters per hour (m³/h) per well, highlighting the industry’s substantial water demand.
Prioritizing Water Quality
Amidst varying water consumption rates, water quality stands as a paramount consideration. Water requirements differ based on specific applications. Beyond extraction, refining, and processing stages necessitate distinct water specifications. For instance, in refining, water is crucial for cooling, steam generation, and various chemical reactions. Effective wastewater treatment also facilitates optimal resource management and ensures compliance with environmental regulations.
The Advantages of Mobile Water Solutions
Replacing or supplementing fixed water treatment with mobile solutions brings efficient and sustainable water management to the Oil and gas industry. It reduces fixed costs, fitting operational budgets (Opex), and eliminating capital expenditure (Capex). Plus, mobile systems offer flexibility by swiftly deploying to various sites as operational needs change—essential in the dynamic Oil and gas sector.
Oil and Gas applications
Mobile Process and Boiler Feed Water
The oil and gas industry relies on water treatment for various processes, including drilling, production, refining, and more. Technologies such as Reverse Osmosis, Filtration, Desalting, Clarification, Activated Carbon Treatment, Dissolved Gas Removal, and pH Adjustment are all essential to ensure water quality, minimize environmental impact, and optimize operational efficiency.
