Advanced Oxidation, Reverse Osmosis and other technologies for effective low-cost remediation of oil and gas wastewaters

Some of the most problematic contaminants found in oil and gas industry wastewater include persistent organic compounds such as phenols, poly-aromatic hydrocarbons such as naphthalene, naphthenic acids, and BTEX.

BI Pure water has a wide variety of customizable water treatment technologies and systems to treat these waters effectively. Our newly-developed, very low cost and safe Advanced Oxidation Process has been proven in separate tests to effectively, safely and inexpensively destroy all of the above problematic contaminants.

The technology is selective to the most toxic contaminants compared to non-toxic background chemicals such as simple but valuable straight-chain hydrocarbons or sugars.

For salty wastewaters, such as frack water, an AOP can be combined with other modules such as ultrafiltration, Reverse Osmosis, evaporation or Moving Bed Bioreactors.

RO skid for purifying brackish water

Often frack waters are reinjected far back underground at high pressure. BI Pure Water’s UF/RO combination concentrates salts in a reject flow that allows up to 99% of the water to be reused or discharged, meeting environmental regulations or even drinking water standards.

RO membranes are capable of withstanding pressures of up to 120 bar (1740 psi) to maximize permeate flow and minimize the reject stream volume. Each membrane can provide a flow rate of up to 6400 GPD (24 m3/d). BI Pure Water can design wastewater treatment systems for any flow rate requirement.

BI Pure Water’s extensive history of designing custom application-specific solutions for challenging wastewater applications provides confidence to customers requiring well-engineered treatment systems with long life and lowest energy requirements.
