Outlining the Challenges, Trends and Technological Advancements in Oil and Gas Produced Water Management
The total size of the market opportunity for final stage produced water treatment systems is estimated to be around $4.3 billion for the next five years – and predicts that the size of market opportunity for topside produced water re-injection systems is around $9.8 billion over the same period. (According to recent reports from Douglas Westwood)
Produced water is one of the largest waste streams and byproducts in the oil & gas industry. With increasing amounts of water necessary in order to extract oil in mature fields, it's no wonder that the re-use of produced water has become an asset for many operators. At the same time, efficient treatment for usage or disposal of produced water in line with regulatory requirements is crucial
The largest volume of water waste arises from production operations for the oil and gas industries and recycling produced water is part of an environmental solution to keep drilling without damaging the world around us.
With water production becoming a major environmental and economic issue for operators and regulators worldwide, it is every oil and gas operator’s responsibility to ensure they adopt efficient strategies to mitigate the ill effects of produced water.
After a very successful 2012 edition, Oil & Gas IQ is pleased to announce the third edition of Produced Water Management 2013, a conference that looks exclusively into the latest advancements, strategies and technologies to cope with challenges arising out of the large amounts of produced water and other byproducts.
