Over a well’s life, the volume of produced water can be more than 10 times the volume of produced hydrocarbons. What do the well operators do with this wastewater? The most common solution is to dispose of it via deep-well injection. Customers need a better solution due to upcoming regulations, falling oil & gas prices and rising disposal costs.

 

Porifera’s Solution

Porifera’s PFO Concentrator system draws clean water from produced water at a cost competitive to deep well injection.  The clean water can be reused for local agricultural purposes, eliminating wastewater disposal and transportation costs associated with oil and gas extraction. Furthermore, the concentrated, near-ZLD brine that the PFO Concentrator system produces can be reused to make up a 10-12 lb brine for well stimulation. The low maintenance, unmanned system is very flexible allowing it to handle the highly variable feed water qualities associated with the life-span of a well.
