In oil production, water filtration is a crucial process to ensure that the water utilized in the drilling and production procedures is free from contaminants that may harm the equipment or affect the quality of the oil produced. The type of water filtration system used will depend on the specific needs of the oil production site, such as the source of the water, the quality of the water, and the type of contaminants present.
Produced water contains contaminants that require removal before proper disposal or reuse. Some of the contaminants found in produced water include: oil, naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM), waxes, greases, sand, scales, dissolved salts, CO2 (carbon dioxide) and H2S (hydrogen sulfide) gases, hydrocarbons, production chemicals, and various metals.
The treatment of produced water will differ according to the intended disposal method or reuse purpose.
Tekleen’s self-cleaning filters remove all suspended solids in your water such as shells and algae. Typical filtration is to 2 micrometers, but really depends on specific reservoir requirements.
Tekleen Filters offer one of the simplest and most convenient ways of solving these problems. Tekleen filters are self-cleaning and require virtually no maintenance. Filtration down to 2 micron.
