Recycling, reusing or treating produced water does not always have to be expensive. Most Oil & Gas companies manage more water than they do hydrocarbons. While MIOX is not a 100% solution to all produced water treatment, frac water treatment and hydrogen sulfide removal needs, it does do the heavy lifting.
On-site chemical generation systems can safely and cost effectively generate disinfection products for oil and gas drilling and produced water treatment and distribution. Optional mobile units such as Blackwater, generate chemicals on site and on demand using simple reagents, increasing worker and community safety by replacing delivered chemicals at the well or production site.
The MIOX System
Cost effectively provide oxidant on site in order to maintain performance. The MIOX system uses salt and electricity to generate a chlorine-based solution that contains other, more powerful, oxidants as well. The superior mixed oxidant chemistry makes it equally effective at higher pH. Since oxidants have superior algae-killing properties, additional savings may be realized.
Two main consumables are used to compare costs for chemical generation – salt and electricity. As a result, the estimated operational costs – and savings – is a combination of the salt cost, electrical cost, and cell replacement costs. Many of our customers have been seeing steady, and in some cases, dramatically increasing cost increases, up to 10% or more per year, for bleach over the past two years.
Drivers include rising transportation costs and increasing security costs. In contrast, salt and electrical costs have been very stable over the past 5 years, offering a higher degree of confidence in future costs of operating the system; return on Investment is typically 18 – 36 months or less.
During produced and flowback water treatment, oil & gas companies want to avoid dangerous chemicals whenever possible. They also want to remove iron, treat out Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and ammonia and they want to eliminate bacteria which can later cause Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) issues, corrosion, poor well performance, and other problems. MIOX’s Mixed Oxidant helps with all of these issues. To see the safety improvements for oil & gas, click here.
