Applied Water Technology in Oil and Gas Production - PF-21 - A PetroSkills course

This course provides an overview of the main water handling systems typically encountered in upstream (E&P) production operations, both onshore and offshore. The chemistry of the main water-related problems of mineral scales, corrosion, bacteria, and oily water will be reviewed both from the theoretical and practical aspects. Produced water treatment equipment and typical water quality specifications will also be reviewed, as well as water injection and disposal systems. An exercise will be given to identify typical system problems and to apply the knowledge you gained to propose solutions. Emphasis will be placed on understanding and resolving operational problems in process equipment.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Managers, engineers, chemists, and operators needing to understand water-related problems in oil and gas production and their solutions.
