Cost-effective oilfield water treatment application are in high demand and multiple companies are trying to fill this very important necessity. New laws and regulations are being drafted right now in the Texas legislature regarding oilfield waste water and multiple companies are trying to address the immediate need to cost effectively and reliably recycle oilfield waste water rather than dispose of and replace it. These companies utilize traditional methods, trying to make them more effective, portable, and economical, and new methods, such as electro coagulation, traditional ozonation alone, UV alone, high voltage electrolysis, etc., but none of these can treat water as cost effectively as ARANA’s newly patented processes.
Before & After Frac Water
ARANA has developed reliable large-scale processes capable of recycling and/or treating large volumes of oilfield frac flowback and produced water, capable of treating up to 300 barrels of flowback water per hour in a portable, trailerable system.
This system is further scalable for larger volumes and can recycle / treat virtually any volume of oilfield water in fixed location, modular systems.
This process enables the petroleum industry to pursue hydrocarbon recovery with lower costs of wastewater handling, smaller water treatment footprints, and the ability to be “green” in wastewater management.
The Patented ARANA Systems:
1. Greatly improves the methodology of removing contaminants from oil field wastewater compared to current processes.
2. Recycling of frac flowback and produced water can be done in situ.
3. A minimal footprint is required for an ARANA system, with little or no interruptions to operations.
4. For the volumes of water treated, energy consumption is the lowest possible.
5. The ARANA systems are completely scalable, able to treat/recycle from 100 gallons to 20 million gallons or more of water per day.
6. The ARANA systems can be designed and implemented to achieve the desired levels of sterilization, filtration, and/or recycling quality.
7. Maintenance costs are minimal, and the systems can be operated autonomously or manned.
8. Wastewater is minimized, with the costs and public relations from wholesale disposal being practically eliminated.
9. Reduces the time, logistics, and other issues related to the transporting and disposal of fluids.
10. Allows an oil company to save money while conserving water and being “greener”.
