The SeaWave® service provides a compact, scalable, and modular solution to treat flowback and produced water for overboard discharge efficiently and reliably within regulatory specifications. The SeaWave service utilizes multiple technologies to break emulsions and separate solids, typically achieving up to 99% reduction in contaminants such as oil and grease, total suspended solids (TSS), iron, heavy metals, and bacteria.
Water containing solids and hydrocarbons pass through electrocoagulation (EC) cells and then through the flotation and filtration process, effectively and consistently producing discharge-quality water for most offshore applications.
The SeaWave service's customizable equipment configurations allow for solutions that fit space and weight restrictions while maintaining reliable throughput capacity with redundant components.

Inline monitoring of flow rate, oil in water content, turbidity, conductivity, and pH
The significance and importance of water to the oil and gas industry cannot be overstated. While water is often an unwanted by-product of production, water is utilized in many production scenarios and is often times the primary driver for the production of oil. This paper discusses the importance of an accurate water analysis and will discuss the practical uses of this information.
In offshore wells, Southern Brazil, where environmental regulations are among the strictest and rig costs among the highest in the world, one Major Operator is using the SeaWave service from Multi-Chem, a Halliburton Service, to successfully treat flowback and production water for safe and compliant discharge from a number of platforms.
Halliburton's SeaWave service offers a versatile solution for effective and consistent processing of water for discharge for offshore completions and production. The SeaWave unit relies on electrocoagulation to destabilize particulate and break oil/water emulsions, typically achieving 99% reduction in contaminants.
