The use of water by the oil & gas industry to inject into wells to recover more oil is putting a heavy strain on the availability of fresh water in many areas across the world. Treating water that has been used to release oil & gas wells so that the water can be recovered for other uses requires special technologies. Shale gas has huge potential, and MD can provide a solution to the issue of water treatment. Pretreatment for these systems is critical, however, as even small impurities in the water can severely reduce flux or damage the overall system. Oil must be removed and precipitates must be prevented from forming. In addition to reduced flux, another potential issue is unexpected downtime for maintenance and repair. In addition, the salinity of the water is inconsistent and it may be high, making the process less than optimal. AQUA|STILL technology may offer a solution that will reduce the need for pretreatment.
