Oilfield Water Treatment - Well Production | SLB

Water Treatment

Systems for comprehensive management of produced water, seawater, and wastewater

Sustainable management of industry water streams from start to finish

Efficient and effective water treatment is the cornerstone of a water management process that meets regulatory guidelines and HSE requirements and helps manage long-term water-related capex and opex. Our water treatment and management solutions range from bulk oil removal to polishing for reinjection. A broad portfolio of industry-leading technologies and engineers with global experience enable us to design customized water treatment systems that deliver reliable performance throughout the life of your project.

ENVIROUNIT Offshore Slop Water Treatment System

Compact, portable systems for treating drilling wastes offshore.

Oil Removal

Produced water treatment systems that enable reuse, discharge, or water disposal.

Enabling reuse, discharge, or disposal of produced water

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

Voraxial

Impeller-induced cyclonic separator

Achieve simultaneous three-way separation of oil, water, and solids for onsite oilfield water treatment.

Seawater Treatment

Systems that prepare seawater for oil and gas use by treating biofoulants, dissolved oxygen, and suspended or dissolved solids. 

Worker at seawater treatment facility

Rendering seawater suitable for use in hydrocarbon production

Oil and gas facilities use seawater for a variety of applications, including EOR, equipment cooling, fire suppression, potable water generation, and desalter operations. Prior to its use, seawater must be suitably treated for biofoulants, dissolved oxygen, and suspended or dissolved solids.

Biofoulant Control

Removal of macro- and microorganisms from seawater

Prevent contamination of seawater treatment systems from bacteria to barnacles.

CDX

Compact deoxygenation system

Deoxygenate seawater prior to downhole injection to reduce tubular and pipeline corrosion.

Dissolved Solids Removal

Services and expertise

Remove dissolved solids from seawater used for injection, minimizing reactions that can cause formation issues.

Filtration

Suspended solids removal

Meet specific operational and footprint requirements with a range of tailored filtration systems.
