This course presents different processes in water treatment in natural and constructed system sludge treatment technologies In addition to produced water large quantities of seawater and water from other sources is treated and injected. The economic success of oil and gas development projects depends very much on our ability to successfully manage water.

Water management is defined as our ability to diagnose the cause of excess water production, design and implement remedial treatments to prevent water production, and in most instances deal with the large volumes of produced water. This course discusses methods, equipment and tools used for testing, diagnosing, and minimizing water production from oil and gas wells. Reservoir engineering and surface facility aspects of water handling, treatment and re-injection are extensively discussed.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Learn and understand the techniques for present and future water purification and treatment of operation and management of treatment plants
  • Calculate how to construct and manage different processes involved in sustainable water treatment
