Refining the Cutting-edge of Oil and Gas Operations
Water plays an important role in Oil and Gas operations, with its usage permeating at all levels of the oil production value chain. Stricter environmental regulations on wastewater disposal, combined with increased use of water in unconventional exploration and production methods such as hydraulic fracking and oil well flooding, water management has become a necessary paradigm for the oil and gas sector with water management estimated to account for 27 – 53% of the total operation expenditure for an oil well.
Hyflux’s expertise in membrane technology can be applied at critical junctures of the industry’s value chain. By treating flowback from hydraulic fracking, as well as the oily water from water flooding, we reduce long term operating costs by optimising crude oil recovery and recycling catalysts.
