produced water disposal
COST EFFECTIVE OIL & GAS WATER SOLUTIONS
Oil & gas operators accept that wastewater in upstream, midstream and downstream production processes is inevitable and that effective management of this critical element is vital in controlling costs and maximising profitability.
Minetek Water has developed the most cost-effective water evaporation solution in the world with the ability to efficiently manage produced water, which is usually high in Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) including salt, grease and other compounds.
Our modular land-based and floating/pontoon-based mechanical evaporation solutions provide an economical alternative to traditionally high disposal costs, reducing the need for storage and transport costs, all while helping operators meet strict compliance and regulatory requirements.
The ability to deliver equipment on time has been a feature of our dealing and we haven't had a situation where a variation has been requested. The quality of their workmanship has been good and the capability of hardware has been as expected or better than quoted”
The relatively small fans allowed us to utilise our existing bulkhead, where we were severely limited by space, which allowed us to use our existing infrastructure and dramatically reduce downtime in the mine during the change out. The installation was completed safely... and allows us to scale our ventilation flow with their pressure on demand system to suit our production profile.
I have used these evaporators very successfully at mine sites where I have worked in the past. They are an extremely reliable unit and worked above expectations in the environment where we had them set up. As for spray drift/mist this can be controlled by the weather monitoring systems that are available with the units. Additionally, how you set them up and the amount of fall you can achieve allows for more moisture to be stripped from the droplets]will greatly benefit your overall evaporation rates.
We found the MINETEK WATER team listened and supported our situation with helpful guidance and advice to layout the evaporator pipework maximising their efficiency. I would highly recommend the units to others needing a cost effective solution to excess water.”
MINETEK's installations have been very successful and prompted the contracting of MINETEK to conduct a full mobile fleet and fixed plant noise monitoring assessment at the Acland mine site.
