Avoid these common problems for longer equipment life.
Chevron’s San Ardo oil field
When it comes to the treatment of produced water and its intended use after treatment, one size does not fit all.
This technology expands options for fracking resources.
Hydraulic fracturing is by far the most common technique used to break up the rock, and several strategies to create a hydraulic fracture network along the lateral have been developed throughout the years.
Horizontal recompletions provide the avenue to attractive economics, even in this depressed commodity price environment.
The biocidal action of UV light is complemented by a small amount of peracetic acid (PAA) for residual disinfection.
New technology puts produced natural gas to use and lowers noise pollution at wellsites.
One system provides both a biocide and a scale inhibitor.
Abrasive fluids bypass pumps altogether in systems that use this technology.
A combination of mechanical and chemical processes can alleviate strains on water resources.
Heating equipment has not evolved as quickly as other oilfield equipment in terms of efficiency, size, durability, emissions containment and safety.
Worldwide, the produced water to oil ratio is 3-to-1. In the U.S., the ratio is 8-to-1.
By speeding up and quantifying the decision-making process, several scenarios and strategies can be rapidly compared, and the length of the engineering design and planning stages can be decreased dramatically.
