At the same time, oil and gas operators need water for operations. For example, in North America alone, unconventional gas stimulation requires 14 million BWPD to increase well productivity. Thermal enhanced oil recovery (EOR), which requires steam for the improved recovery of heavy oil, uses another half a million BWPD. And secondary recovery using waterfloods for conventional oil adds on another million BWPD. Thus, finding and transporting water for operations is an equally challenging prospect.
Halliburton has applied innovative processes and technologies to oilfield water management challenges for almost 100 years
From chemical and mechanical conformance tools to custom water treatment, we solve operators' water challenges with processes and technologies that reduce unwanted water production and treat produced water for disposal or reuse while satisfying a broad range of reservoir management and environmental objectives.
