Produced Water Open Innovation Workshop

reg-online-pws meeting

Global Water Intelligence and Produced Water Society are hosting a one-day workshop on water for upstream oil & gas in the Middle East region at Jumeirah Towers in Abu Dhabi, April 18th, 2016. The Produced Water Open Innovation Workshop will be a forum for the challenges and opportunities in produced water treatment in the Middle East.

Based around the concept of open innovation, members of the produced water community around the world will gather to establish a collaborative setting and utilize their cumulative expertise to explore issues and gather solutions. Following the presentations in each session, session leaders will facilitate open, audience-driven discussion to explore the problems currently faced by operators and system designers. There will be particular emphasis on defining the problems and needs of the industry, discussing best practices, and reviewing the state of the treatment technology.

Workshop Outline


SESSION 1

SESSION 2

SESSION 3

Session 1: Water Handling, Management, Conveyance & Disposal

This session will explore produced water characteristics in the region and explore broad issues in the field, including fluid types, disposal options, treatment objectives, and economic drivers. Additional details will include:

  • Considerations for system and facility design
  • Treatment targets for overboard or injection disposal, or for water flooding
  • Common mistakes in technology application and challenges in facility design
  • Important technology needs in the region

Also in this session,
GCC Panel discussion with Local Produced Water Experts
Hani Al-Khalifa, Saudi Aramco
Munib Ahamad, Petroleum Development Oman
Hugo Polderman, Shell
Kris Bansal, (ex) Conocophillips

The wrap up on this session will include a problem solving workshop. The audience will break into groups and take the material from the session to apply to real-world issues. Each group’s results will be discussed together.

SESSION LEADS:
John Walsh, CETCO
Kris Bansal, (ex) Conocophillips
Hugo Polderman, Shell
Hani Al-Khalifa, Saudi Aramco


Session 2: Sea Water Injection for Production Enhancement

The session will examine the qualities of sea water at source and after pipeline transportation, as well as the effect this has on injection. The utilization of both sea water and produced water will be explored.

Special consideration will be given to:

  • Properties of sea water vs produced water
  • Characteristics of hydrocarbon bearing carbonate reservoir
  • Mechanical and chemical treatments, including SRP and low salinity
  • Monitoring and analyzing successful flood operations

The workshop at the close of this session will discuss technology need and integration. The highly complex chemistries make pinpointing the root cause of pipeline system degradation very difficult.

Additonal Presentation From:
Dr. Badar Al-Busafi, ADMA-OPCO

SESSION LEADS:
Lisa Henthorne, Water Standard
Hani Al-Khalifa, Saudi Aramco
John Walsh, CETCO


Session 3: Produced Water Treatment for Industrial & Agricultural Reuse

This session will explore the water quality requirements versus the produced water composition available in the region, with particular attention focused on new technologies and economic drivers. What companies are doing now and what they could be doing in the future will be discussed.

Additional Projects and Focus Areas:

  • The economics of achieving the quality targets for beneficial reuse
  • Case history of regional projects
  • Additional examination of novel and tested technology applications
  • Review of the state of the industry and the state of the art

Introduction:
Reuse opportunities, drivers for reuse, water quality requirements

Available Technologies
Given the wide gap between produced water quality and quality required for reuse, what are the technology options which can be considered commercially established, where are there technology gaps, and what new technologies are in development?

Case Studies

  • Beneficial reuse for oil production by steam generation – Occidental/PDO Oman
  • An example of total reuse – Shell Pearl Qatar GTL
  • Beneficial reuse for oil production – California
  • Managing the brine in Oman – NIMR Reed Beds
  • Humidification dehumidification – a technology for brine concentration
  • Forward Osmosis – membranes for brine concentration

Additional Presentations From:
Dr. Roman Breuer, Bauer
Dr. Eric Hoek, Water Planet
Dr. Anurag Bajpayee, Gradiant Corp.

SESSION LEADS:
Tom Pankratz, Water Desalination Report
Keith Minnich, Third Bay Ltd.

After the presentations and workshops, there will be a reception to review the material from the day and discuss the options for establishing a Produced Water Society chapter in the Middle East Region.
