Understanding the basics of oil formation and extraction can help wastewater experts to select appropriate treatment technologies. Following a more detailed discussion on the process of low salinity water flooding, and the impact of water cut on Produced Water, a comparison of desalination technologies is provided including evaluation metrics. The LoSal? Enhanced Oil Recovery is discussed in the context of a process flow diagram.
This presentation is available to AMTA Members only.
