A leading Latin American multinational oil and gas company is due to visit TUV SUD NEL to discuss the outcomes of a recent consultancy project and to learn about the treatment and measurement methods that are used for produced water discharges in the North Sea.
“Representatives from the company will be attending our upcoming Produced Water Workshop event that is due to be held in June in Aberdeen,” says Environmental Consultant, Dr Ming Yang. “They will then be coming to our East Kilbride site for talks.”
Ming and his team provided the company with consultancy support to help them with regulatory compliance issues relating to the monitoring of produced water.
“They are now coming to visit us to get more advice on the best treatment technologies to use to deal with their produced water discharges,” Ming explains.
The consultancy work provided a technical briefing note on the applicability of using a specific monitoring methodology and information on how it compared to a methodology being stipulated by regulatory authorities. This briefing note was used by the operator in discussions with its regulators to agree the best methodology to use.
In a separate report for the client, Ming also provided detailed information on the regulation of the offshore discharge of produced water around the world, on available produced water treatment technologies and on penalties for exceeding discharge limits.
“This on-going partnership highlights how companies can benefit from our expertise to help with their discussions with regulators and to choose the optimal technology options for monitoring and treating pollution,” says Ming.
