|Applied Water Technology in Oil and Gas Production - PF-21|
|Surface Water Management in Unconventional Resource Plays - SWM|
|Fundamental and Practical Aspects of Produced Water Treating - PF-23|
|Water Management in Heavy Oil Resource Operations - HOWM|
Discipline: Production and Completions Engineering
Duration: 3 days
Instructor(s): Rafael Gay-de-Montella
|This course will review basics of heavy oil extraction, characteristics, quantities, and typical ratios of waters in heavy oil extraction. It will review alternative discharge limitations, offshore discharge, and treatment for well injection. Suspended and oil/crude separation, with traditional and new equipment, will be covered. The course will review the scientific basis and principles of softening, lime softening (hot, warm, including sludge disposal), strong acid exchange (SAC), weak acid exchange (WAC), ion exchange, boiler feed water chemistry (including once through steam generator), and cooling tower cases. Technologies for produced water recovery will be discussed.|
Central processing facility operators and process designers dealing with heavy oil produced water separation, recovery, and treatment for reuse or disposal. Personnel involved in establishing, improving, optimizing, or supervising the implementation of technology improvements. This course will be useful to managers in completion, production, and optimization of operations. The course is a great reference parameter for water technologies in mining and heavy industry, with some examples of cases and treatment for discharge and spills.
