Third-Party Testing Confirms OriginOil Process Reduces Produced Water Contaminants
Independent third-party testing by Zalco Laboratories has confirmed that OriginOilâ€™s Prime product for oil and gas operations successfully reduced contaminants in produced water to the level required for reuse for cyclic steam stimulation, a type of enhanced oil recovery.
Using data collected during a month of operation and sales demonstrations hosted by Vaquero Energy, an exploration and production company based in Bakersfield, California, Zalcoâ€™s lab results confirmed that Prime reduced all measures of non-soluble contamination to very low, or undetectable levels.
OriginOilâ€™s Prime integrates OriginOilâ€™s Electro Water Separation (EWS) â€” a high-speed, primarily chemical-free process to clean up large quantities of water â€” with a self-cleaning filter for heavy solids removal on the front end, as well as a polishing system on the back end.
Zalco Laboratory confirmed Primeâ€™s ability to achieve the following results:
- Turbidity reduced by 99.96 percent
- Total suspended solids reduced by 97 percent
- Total recoverable petroleum hydrocarbons reduced by 97 percent
- Biological oxygen demand reduced by 71 percent
- Chemical oxygen demand reduced by 92 percent
- Diesel range organics reduced by 99.3 percent
- Gasoline range organics reduced by 86 percent
- Motor oil range organics reduced by 99.5 percent
The global produced water treatment systems market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.1 percent between 2014 and 2020, according to a Future Market Insights report published earlier this week.
