Oil & Gas
Water scarcity and stricter discharge regulations are critical issues at the forefront of today’s oil & gas industry. Since oil & gas production both creates waste water and requires clean water, water treatment in oil & gas and is an important factor for future growth. In light of ongoing water issues, oil & gas producers have taken on new sustainability goals that place greater emphasis on water conservation and reuse.
One type of water that is present in oil & gas production is produced water, which is water trapped in underground formations that is brought to the surface during oil & gas exploration and production. Produced water typically contains high concentrations of various contaminants, making it particularly challenging to treat through traditional methods.
