Applied Water Technology In Oil And Gas Production Book Course

Course Duration

5 Days

Course Description

This course provides an overview of the main water handling systems typically encountered in upstream (E&P) production operations, both onshore and offshore. The chemistry of the main water related problems of mineral scales, corrosion, bacteria, and oily water will be reviewed both from the theoretical and practical aspects. Produced water treatment equipment and typical water quality specifications will be reviewed as well as water injection and disposal systems. An exercise will be given to identify typical system problems and you will be able to apply the knowledge you gained to propose solutions. Emphasis will be placed on understanding and resolving operational problems in process equipment.

Course Objective

You will learn:

  • The basics of oilfield water chemistry
  • How to monitor and control corrosion, scale, and bacterial growth in produced water and water injection/disposal systems
  • How to implement system surveillance programs to detect potential problems before system damage occurs
  • About produced (oily) water treatment options and related treatment equipment
  • How to use the knowledge gained to identify typical system problems and be able to propose solutions

Course Certificate

UMETTS certificate will be issued to all attendees completing all of the total tuition hours of the Course

Who Should attend?

Managers, engineers, chemists, and operators who need to understand water related problems in oil and gas production and their solutions
