Workshop Outline:

The amount of produced water resulting from oil and gas production continues to rise worldwide. This is accompanied by increasingly more stringent regulatory requirements, e.g. Risk Based Approach is now being implemented in the North Sea. In addition, chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is being hotly pursued by industry. Produced water returned in these operations however is significantly more difficult to treat. Also subsea separation and produced water re-injection technologies continue to advance, but monitoring of produced water quality subsea remains a key technology gap. To help industry address some of these challenges particularly in the current low oil price environment, NEL is hosting the latest Produced Water Workshop. This two day event will cover such issues within the industry today ranging from presentations delivered by key industry experts, to open discussion and networking. Equipment providers will be showcasing their latest developments and sharing their field experience in tackling these issues head on with the supplemental exhibition to the Workshop.
