Water is a major component in all phases of oil and gas production
Evaporation technology is an accepted method of treating oilfield produced water from enhanced oil recovery operations such as SAGD and CSS. This thermal process provides high-quality distillate as feed water for steam generation and allows the flexibility of using either traditional OTSGs (once-through steam generator) or drum-type boilers.
Advanced recovery technologies have drastically increased water use during oil and gas exploration. Recovering one barrel of oil or gas now requires approximately four barrels of water
In recent decades, the oil and gas industry has undergone significant changes. However, water and wastewater treatment for upstream oil and gas water has remained a key factor for successful operations
