Oil Removal & Polishing

Overview Library

Enabling reuse, discharge, or disposal of produced water

The US alone generates billions of barrels of produced water annually, making it the oil and gas industry’s most abundant byproduct. Before it can be used for enhanced oil recovery (EOR), placed in a disposal well, or discharged offshore, its entrained oil and suspended solids content must be reduced to a level that meets HSE regulations, protects formation rheology, and limits equipment corrosion.


Reliable and effective removal of suspended solids and oil from produced water before discharge into the environment or reinjection.

UNICEL Vertical IGF Induced-Gas Flotation Unit

Efficient oil/water separation with complete process containment.

VORTOIL Deoiling Hydrocyclone

Highly efficient, compact, and inexpensive method of removing oil from large volumes of produced water.

EPCON Dual Compact Flotation Unit

Improved oil-in-water (OIW) removal with 50% greater efficiency and a 50% smaller footprint.

CYCLOTECH Cyclonic Separation Technologies

State-of-the-art technologies that separate bulk water from the well stream and remove oil from produced water, cost-effectively and efficiently.

Remote Monitoring & Control

Real-time remote monitoring and control systems that remove human misinterpretation from produced water treatment to automatically assure the lowest possible OIW discharges to the sea.

MYCELX RE-GEN Advanced Water Treatment Media

Backwashable system used as a primary or secondary treatment option to sustainably treat and remove oils and oily solids down to a particle size of 5 um from wastewater streams and produced and process water.

MYCELX Polisher Oil-In-Water Polishing Filter

Tertiary treatment technology for fast and permanent removal of oil and grease down to <1-um droplet size from produced water, achieving extremely low OIW discharge levels with the industry’s highest flow capacity and smallest footprint.
