Wastewater treatment options are available for production, flow back as well as salt water disposal wells.
Each disposal well facility has a unique set of challenges based on its specific combination of surface equipment design, well design, geology, and fluid compatibility issues as a result of the variable types and quantities of wastewater that are brought into the facility.
However, all disposal wells share four common operational objectives:
Maximize the volume that the facility can process and that can be injected into the well every day
Recover as much skim oil as possible
Minimize damage and maximize the potential capacity of the reservoir
Minimize OpEx and R&M costs on the surface
