Oil and Gas Produced Water Treatment

Treat oil and gas produced water to reduce waste and reuse freshwater. Reduce trucking and disposal costs, chemical usage, and recover more oil.

XtremeRO enables desalination’s workhorse (reverse osmosis) to treat and concentrate oil & gas produced waters with TDS < 80,000 mg/L. This is achieved through a novel system, process, and a leading membrane company’s new membrane technology.

SaltMaker MultiEffect Evaporator Crystallizer can treat almost any oil and gas produced water or wastewater to produce freshwater for reuse and solids for true zero liquid discharge (ZLD).

Flex EDR can treat enhanced oil recovery (EOR) produced waters to the optimal re-injection TDS while recycling polymers for reuse and increasing oil recovery.

Benefit from:

  • Produced water recycle and reuse
  • Water flood enhanced oil recovery (EOR) polymer recycle and reuse
  • Zero liquid discharge (ZLD)
  • Reduce waste volume, reduce trucking, reduce disposal bills
  • Reduce pond volume and disposal well loading
  • Less chemicals, improve safety
  • Extreme recovery brackish water desalination
  • Recycle ion exchange waste acid
  • Mobile pilot plants available

Solutions for:

  • SAGD blowdown
  • OTSG blowdown
  • Coal seam gas
  • Evaporator blowdown
  • Shale gas fracking water
  • Enhanced oil recovery

Our Technologies

  • Technology advancements in reverse osmosis are enabling its second generation application to challenging waters.
  • XtremeRO enables this second generation with: scale and organic management, new membrane products, and advanced process controls that can treat organic laden waters and concentrate brines up to 130,000 mg/L.

  • True Zero liquid discharge (ZLD)
  • Produce freshwater and solids
  • Waste heat + wastewater = freshwater
  • Treat any O&G wastewater with little to no pre-treatment
  • Modular design, self cleaning
  • Desalinate produced waters not suitable for reverse osmosis (RO)
  • Reach optimal re-injection TDS
  • Recycle EOR polymers
  • Where RO is used, increase performance and recovery

Project Summaries

View case studies from past successful projects treating SAGD and OTSG blowdown waters, shale gas and coal seam gas produced waters. We can not only treat enhanced oil recovery produced water, but also increase its value and viscosity by re-activating and recycling the EOR polymer.
