Applied Water Technology in Oil and Gas Production

Thiscourse provides an overview of the main water handling systems –typicallyencountered in upstream (E&P) production operations, both onshore andoffshore. The chemistry of the main water-related problems of mineral scales,corrosion, bacteria, and oily water will be reviewed both from the theoreticaland practical aspects. Produced water treatment equipment and typical waterquality specifications will also be reviewed, as well as water injection anddisposal systems. An exercise will be given to identity typical system problemsand to apply the knowledge you gained to propose solutions. Emphasis will beplaced on understanding and resolving operational problems in processequipment.
