WATER TREATMENT FOR THE OIL, GAS AND POWER INDUSTRIES
With water usage reaching millions of gallons daily, the oil, gas and power industries depend on effective and cost-efficient water treatment solutions. Rising operational costs, safety concerns and strict environmental standards are all factors requiring attention when customizing solutions for these clients. The Ultrapure team offers best-in-class technology and flexible service plans to address a wide range of upstream and downstream applications for oil, gas and power companies.
Oil, Gas and power Water Treatment Solutions
Oil, Gas & Power Water Treatment Applications
Oil and gas production involves drilling through aquifers to access resources thousands of feet below the Earth’s surface. These operations have raised concerns about the potential for aquifers or groundwater sources to be contaminated by methane and other pollutants. Ultrapure offers a full range of filtration technologies and site remediation services to monitor water quality, address possible contamination or prevent impurities from leaching into groundwater in the first place.
Boiler and Cooling Tower Pretreatment
Improving the performance of boiler and cooling systems depends on the pretreatment of water. Chemical treatment, as well as reverse osmosis, provide protection against corrosion, deposition and scaling to increase the efficiency of boiler and cooling tower systems. Addressing these quality issues assists in reducing operational costs and water usage, as well as environmental emissions.
Downstream oil, gas and power processes generate wastewater requiring treatment prior to discharge or reuse. Pollutants such as oils, hydrocarbons, hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, phenols, mercury, selenium, cyanides and chlorides must be removed to meet regulatory standards and ensure desired water quality. Various multimedia filtration processes, ozonation, chemical treatment and reverse osmosis are used to accomplish this.
Upstream Process Water
Water treatment for upstream oil and gas is very complex due to challenges including safety, climate, geographical hazards and environmental regulations. Treatment methods such as ozonation, UV purification, deionization, water softening, water filtration and reverse osmosis assist in increasing oil recovery rate and volume, as well as avoiding costly maintenance downtime or process disruptions.
Decker Power Plant
The Decker Power Plant started out as an RFQ for replacement of the existing Demin units with a 150 gpm doublepass RO.
