Inproheat Industries and Cimarron Energy have partnered to serve the produced water treatment needs of the unconventional natural gas extraction industry. Treating and disposing of produced water, or flowback water, from natural gas well sites in North America is a costly part of production, especially when the well sites are remote.
Inproheat and Cimarron have developed a process that will efficiently reduce the quantity of produced water to be treated by over 95% and make 95% of the produced water reusable for fracturing or wash-down.
Features and Benefits
Save on Disposal Costs: Only 5%, or less, of the volume of produced water remains after treatment in the SubCom. This translates to a 95% reduction in trucking and disposal costs.
Save on Additional Process Costs: No pre-treatment of the solution is required because there are no heat transfer surfaces to plug or foul; the heat is conveyed via gas bubbles dispersed directly through the liquid-to-be-heated
Recover Clean Water for Reuse: The evaporated water can be condensed and reused for fracturing, wash-down, or other processes onsite.
