Water management is a huge issue in Oil & Gas production. Millions of barrels of Produced Water are generated by Oil & Gas wells. Disposal options are becoming more restricted at an ever increasing expense. Conventional oil/water separation technologies are inefficient and lack the capability to remove 100% of hydrocarbons from produced water.
In addition, millions of barrels of water are needed for production and EOR. Operators throw away millions of barrels of Produced Water wastewaters which when properly treated, can be REUSED as a sustainable water source onsite. This is critically important in water scarce areas.
GES’s focus is on produced water recycling, treatment for disposal, and commodities recovery from hydraulic fracturing, and produced waters. Extensive experience in filtration, hydrocarbon recovery, remediation, and cutting-edge electrochemical water treatment technologies, allows the oil and gas division to offer unique solutions.
GES’s oil recovery approach is simple, straightforward, and a leap forward in technology compared to what is on the market today.
A patented self-cleaning technology that takes Filtration to the next level.
The filtrate moves to an oleophilic cation resin-based media bed that has a high affinity for oil droplets and emulsions.
After the oil recovery media, adsorptive media can be used for dissolved and light hydrocarbon capture, ensuring nearly 100% recovery of all valuable materials from waste produced water.
This filtration skid is an example of targeting a specific contaminant for removal. This system component removes a radionuclide at a gas field production site in the USA. The effluent can then be safely disposed of by evaporation.
· Lower power consumption than EC
· More efficient reactions than external plasma
· Fast reaction time (short retention time in reactor)
· Immediate, large, filterable floc
· Minimal heat generated
· Low operating expense
· Generate reactive species in situ as compared to shipping chemicals
· More stable effluent = filterable
