Produced water is by far the largest waste stream in the Oil & Gas Sector. Worldwide for every barrel of oil produced, on average there are roughly four barrels of water co-produced. How one manages this produced water will directly impact oil production and also the ultimate total oil recovery from a field.
Produced water contains all sorts of components of which some can potentially cause environmental harm if discharged. Thus the discharge of produced water (offshore and onshore) is strictly regulated. One of the key parameters that generally requires to be measured for reporting purpose is the content of oil in the produced water.
This webinar provides an introduction to produced water and oil in produced water measurement. The aim is to increase delegates’ knowledge and understanding of produced water and related regulatory requirements, management options, treatment technologies as well as definitions of oil in produced water and commonly available reference and field measurement methods. The issue of uncertainties associated with oil in water measurements will also be touched upon.
