Oil and Gas Water Management

Sustain cost-efficient operations

Oil and Gas Water SolutionsOilfield operations require high volumes of water for a range of surface and downhole applications, accounting for a significant proportion of field development costs. Optimal oilfield water management requires knowledge of reservoir characteristics, production volumes, hydrogeology, engineering design, and environmental considerations. Schlumberger has a deep understanding of the subsurface, combined with the unrivalled engineering experience necessary to address the technical aspects of oil and gas water challenges.

From profiling water-bearing subsurface strata, to the design of wastewater treatment and inection systems, Schlumberger offers resilient water solutions to enable water to be sourced, processed, and disposed of in ways that safeguard local reserves and control project costs. We help operators meet the continuous needs of surface and downhole supply for oilfield applications. Schlumberger delivers continuity and compliant handling for low-impact, interruption-free operations.

Secure local operational water

Oil and Gas Water Solutions

Schlumberger Water Services is uniquely positioned to help operators eliminate the delay and expense of bulk water transport, especially in remote and hard-to-access locations. Using existing subsurface data, we can identify viable water sources that meet operational and camp supply needs. We also offer the drilling, engineering, monitoring, and integrated project management capabilities to commission a new water source.

Safeguard continuous operations

Oil and Gas Water Solutions

Wherever you operate, Schlumberger can help you ensure continuity by making high volumes of localized water available on demand for all your surface and downhole applications. We also process and treat local water on site to prepare it for oilfield use, ensuring your operational strategies keep pace with any variance in supply, and minimizing potential downtime.

Utilize any water source

Oil and Gas Water Solutions

With systems to bring water up to a predefined standard, operators are free to utilize any available input water source, including flowback or produced water from previous hydraulic fracturing jobs or nearby sources such as brackish groundwater or seawater. The Schlumberger approach mitigates the economic and environmental burdens of freshwater sourcing, transportation, and treatment, and the disposal of produced water.

Optimize water asset use

Oil and Gas Water Solutions

Produced water can be an operational asset, rather than a liability. Our treatments remove suspended solids and oil from large volumes of produced water and enable efficient oil/water separation and containment. These treated water assets can be reused in oilfield operations or recycled for industrial or agricultural applications. Alternatively, treated water can be safely returned to existing aquifers or freshwater sources with confidence, while liquid waste can be disposed responsibly via deep injection wells.

Ensure responsible compliance

Oil and Gas Water Solutions

Schlumberger specialists are trusted by industrial bodies and national and local governments to provide expert advice on water-related environmental and regulatory issues. Our hydrogeologists, engineers, and geochemists perform a wide range of environmental services, including site investigations, studies, and assessments and design remedial actions to deal with wastewater compliantly and cost-effectively. Our approach aims to reduce the loading on biological systems while ensuring treated wastewater meets all discharge or reuse requirements.
