Upstream Oil and Gas
Waterflood oil production maximizes oil rates by injecting water into the producing well, filling pore volume in the bearing formation. Produced water is a convenient resource to use for waterflooding, as it is co-located with oil, and already a stream that requires treatment. MYCELX provides a comprehensive solution to filter and treat this water. The produced water can be safely discharged with the lowest environmental impact.
The pore throat size near the wellbore can be very small, requiring more treatment to protect the injection well. Waterfloods are frequently used in existing facilities designed to treat and dispose of contaminants. Operators face significant capital investments to re-engineer facilities to meet stringent treatment goals.
MYCELX REGEN is an effective process to remove oil and solids to exceed water flooding treatment goals in a single step with little to no water treatment chemical addition. REGEN can replace a typical two-part system of NSF and MMF - Single step treatment to reduce typical primary treatment inlet to injection quality.
