  • 11. TREATMENT OF PRODUCED WATER TO MEET IRRIGATION STANDARD

    » BACKGROUND Produced water was defined by Veil et al. (2004) as saline water with hydro carbons extracted from the rocks to the surface. The oil and gas industry is a combination of industries: oil, coal bed methane and conventional non associated gas producers. The aqueous effluent from such process operations is the largest volume stream in the oil and gas operation and exploration processes. Dif...Continue Reading »
