Produced water management and disposal challenges are growing, along with the increased production of oil and gas wells. It is estimated that for every 1 barrel of oil produced there is 8 to 10 barrels of produced water recovered. To decrease costs associated with produced water management, water reuse and recycle technologies are implemented.
Selecting the right water treatment can be difficult as the physical and chemical characteristics of produce water change from location to location. Water treatment options differ according to the intended final use.
Chemical oxidation via permanganate can be an effective option for produced water treatment, especially if lab tests point to issues with iron or sulfur.
