Water Recovery and Recycle

What does it mean and why is it so important?

Unpredictable and unstable petroleum prices dictate that producers implemented water management strategies to:

  • Reduce costs
  • Generate revenue

Our Recycle and Recovery technology can:

  • Eliminate solids
  • Capture oils
  • Recover hydrocarbons

Production water is cleaned to high quality for recycle back into the production process or for inexpensive disposal, all while collecting product that would have otherwise been discarded.

How Water Recovery and Recycle Technology Works

Step 1: Particulate Removal

  • Self-cleaning, cross-flow filter
  • Fully automated operation
  • Hardened Stainless Steel and
    Fiberglass materials of construction
  • Modular
  • Particles removed to 10 micron
  • Protects downstream components
  • Reduces disposal costs

Step 2: Free and Emulsified Oil Removal

  • Packed bed coalescing media
  • Fully automated operation
  • Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, and
    Fiberglass materials of construction
  • Capture small oil droplets, convert to
    large drops to separate by density for
  • Pressurized separator tank eliminates
    vapor dangers

Step 3: Hydrocarbon Capture and Polishing

  • Adsorption media captures dissolved
  • Fully automated operation
  • Regenerated onsite with steam
  • Hydrocarbons recovered in condenser
    in free product form
  • Treated water polished to non-detect
    for hydrocarbons
  • No media disposal fees

Result: Clean, Clear Brine

Why Water Recovery and Recycle Technology Matters


  • Millions of gallons of water produced throughout life of a petroleum well
  • Water Management represents a significant capital expenditure to producers
  • Some regions lack water sources for well development processes
  • Others lack easy, cost-effective disposal options
