Formation and Produced Water Analysis
Produced water is chemically very complex. The process of producing and processing produced water causes changes in temperature and pressure. The addition of treating chemicals with the presence of coproduced gas, oil, and solids, changes the produced water properties and behaviour. Understanding how production perturbs the chemical state including the salt composition of the produced water is the key to predicting and controlling many problems.
OROGENIC (Fluid Analysis Lab) help to determine the tendency for scaling and corrosion in produced water. In addition, we analyse the trace metals in produced water to establish the degree of water toxicity before discharge into the environment. Toxicity evaluation is provided for drill cuttings and drilling mud samples.
