Centralized Wastewater Treatment for Facilities Managing Oil and Gas Extraction Wastes: Wastewater Management Practices
This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of wastewater treatment technologies that are applicable to the treatment of oil and gas extraction wastes used at centralized wastewater treatment (CWT) facilities managing these wastes.
The exploration, development and production of oil and gas reserves vary markedly from region to region. There are a number of solid and liquid waste materials generated during oil and gas exploration, extraction and production, and these waste materials may be managed by CWT facilities. The nature and characteristics and quantity of the wastes generated depend upon a number of factors, such as the type of drilling, the characteristics of the formation, the depth of the well and the type and quantity of chemical additives used during drilling, production and well maintenance activities.
CWT facilities that manage oil and gas extraction wastewaters use a variety of treatment technologies, depending on characteristics of the wastewater received and the treatment objectives.
This 4 PDH online course is intended for chemical, petroleum, environmental and industrial engineers as well as other interested in learning about the wastewater treatment technologies that are used at CWT to treat oil and gas extraction wastewaters.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the following waste treatment technologies: chemical precipitation, filtration/flotation/ sedimentation and crystallization
- Understanding the following technologies: evaporation/condensation, reverse osmosis, and biological treatment
- Learning about the cost considerations of the listed technologies
- Understanding the capabilities and limitations of the listed technologies
