Water-based Oil Recovery System Increases Oil Well Yields

Sunday, May 06, 2012

Water Standard Pilots claim its enhanced water-based oil recovery technology can increase oil well yields by 5 – 15%

Water Standard is a global water treatment specialist delivering innovative desalination, water-based enhanced oil recovery and produced water solutions to the onshore and offshore oil & gas industry.

By optimizing compatibility of the water used in chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) applications with reservoir geochemistry, it is possible to increase an oil well's yield by 5 to 15 percent while significantly reducing the use of oilfield chemicals, claim Water Standard Piiots.

Water Standard has successfully initiated a groundbreaking pilot project which confirms the performance of its H2Ocean Spectrum™ Technology for water-based enhanced oil recovery (EOR) both on and offshore.

The H2Ocean Spectrum™ Technology allows producers to customize water quality in real time to further optimize EOR performance once in the field, and meet challenging water requirements.

“We are excited with the progress and results of the H2Ocean Spectrum technology pilot,” said Amanda Brock, CEO of Water Standard. “We are able to closely control hardness and salinity in treated water – even focusing on selective ion removal – to match the reservoir's geochemistry within strict requirements prescribed by the oilfield production chemists. By optimizing compatibility of the water used in chemical EOR applications with reservoir geochemistry, it is possible to increase an oil well's yield by 5 to 15 percent while significantly reducing the use of oilfield chemicals."

Water Standard is also piloting and evaluating a new generation of experimental and commercial reverse osmosis and nanofiltration membrane technologies.
