Development of Advanced Membranes for Produced Water Treatment

Friday, July 22, 2011 10:00am - 10:20am EDT  
Host: Membranes for Produced Water Treatment
By: Daniel Wandera, PhD Candidate, Clemson University

Produced water (PW) is oily water co-produced during oil and gas exploration and production.  PW contains dispersed oils and suspended solids.

An estimated 21 billion barrels of PW generated from active oil and gas wells in the US in 2007.  Normally, PW is re-injected in geologically isolated wells or is surface discharged with adverse environmental effects.

Membrane filtration is an option but is affected negatively by fouling and concentration polarization.
