Reducing Oil & Gas Water Treatment Costs

Calculate Produced

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.

Cost Factors

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.

Hydrogen Sulfide Removal in Oil & Gas Water

The MIOX DifferenceThe chemicals used for treating for hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in the oil and gas industry can sometimes be just as hazardous as the H2S itself. MIOX wants to eliminate these hazardous chemicals and let oil & gas companies create their own safe chemistry on-demand as they need it. Whether it is high volume treatment, or low volume treatments in the middle of nowhere with no resources, MIOX’s sodium hypochlorite generators will meet your needs.

Field tests and laboratory studies performed to date show that MOS tends to speed reaction rates or drive oxidation reactions to completion compared to sodium hypochlorite.

MOS breaks down odor causing compounds, such as phenols or organochloramines and remove the musty odors of geosmin and methyl isoborneol (MIB) caused when water sources suffer from algae blooms.

  • Oxidize hydrogen sulfides more rapidly than chlorine and without ph adjustment.
  • Lower doses of MOS achieves microbial inactivation, thus reducing the addition of chemicals to the water supply.

With sufficient dosing, MOS does not require a detention tank, filter system, and head can be maintained from the wells to distribution.

MIOX systems require only ordinary food grade salt, eliminating the transportation, handling, and storing of hazardous chemical.  Employees do not need to wear protective gear, and there are no storage compatibility issues.  Since the solution is stored and injected into flowback and produced water at less than one percent concentrations, the oxidant solution is not considered a hazardous material, but rather an environmentally benign yet highly effective chemical.

How It Works

Table salt (NaCl) is mixed with water to create a brine solution. This brine is then passed through MIOX’s proprietary equipment which applies an electric current, creating a Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS). This electrolysis process results in a Mixed Oxidant solution that is dilute enough to impose no Health, Safety or Environmental concerns. (See video below)

A Safer Oxidant

When compared to other chemicals, such as conventional biocides, we dramatically reduce exposure on-site. No special clean-up or spill procedures, or potentially expensive air quality testing needs to be observed with MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution chemistry.

MIOX and Operation Blessing Bring Safe Drinking Water to Philippines for Disaster Relief

Typhoon Haiyan

MIOX Corporation, the industry leader in on-site chemical generation technology, has partnered with Operation Blessing International (OBI), one of the largest charities in America, for disaster relief efforts in the Philippines following Super Typhoon Haiyan.

Six (6) MIOX BPS portable sodium hypochlorite generators and one (1) SANILEC 6 sodium hypochlorite generator have been deployed to the Philippines by Operation Blessing International.  The seven (7) clean water treatment technologies have the combined capacity to treat approximately 500,000 gallons of water each day, providing safe drinking water in life-threatening conditions.

Operation Blessing International President, Bill Horan, confirms lack of safe drinking water is one of the biggest problems facing the relief efforts.  With raw sewage overflowing as a result of the typhoon, water supplies are contaminated.

”One of the most pressing challenges in a major disaster such as this is providing clean water,” says Horan. “These state-of-the-art MIOX units will be of immeasurable help in our efforts to provide clean drinking water for tens of thousands of people each day.”

MIOX President & CEO, Craig Beckman, said, “We are honored to partner with Operation Blessing in its efforts on the ground in the Philippines.  At our core, MIOX is about safe water disinfection and clean drinking water.  Everyone wants to help in times of great suffering, and we are glad to be a central part of Operation Blessing’s strategy in Tacloban.”

Typhoon HaiyanOperation Blessing VP of International Operations, David Darg, is on the ground in Tacloban, Philippines preparing for the arrival of the portable sodium hypochlorite water treatment systems. David, who has been a first responder to over 100 natural disasters globally, says the level of suffering in the Philippines is among the worst he has ever witnessed.

“There’s a tremendous amount of aid that is ready to pour into the country, but the port was destroyed and the local infrastructure severely damaged,” said Darg. “This is making the transportation of aid to the hardest hit areas near impossible.”

According to Darg, the most important thing right now is to provide clean water.

How On-Site Chemical Generation Works, The Electrolysis Process

On-site generation of chemistries for water disinfection is a technology that is based on decades-old scientific principles.  MIOX on-site generators (OSGs) use an electrolysis process that takes a solution of sodium chloride (salt) and water and applies electricity, to produce chlorine-based disinfection chemistry.  Expertly designed Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) and sodium hypochlorite generators from MIOX give customers the freedom to produce disinfectants in the amount they need, when they need it.  Because of the benefits that OSGs provide, many industries and water treatment companies are switching to on-site chemical generation and moving away from more traditional chlorine delivery systems such as chlorine gas, concentrated sodium hypochlorite, and bulk calcium hypochlorite.

MIOX chemistries have multiple water disinfection application including
Municipal water treatment, industrial water treatment, aquatics water, hospital disinfectant, secondary disinfection and legionella treatment, food and beverage processing, livestock watering and farm sanitation solutions, and oil and gas water and produced water treatment.
