Oil & Gas

Today oil companies face new challenges if they are to improve efficiency and productivity. Water supply, scarcity and regulatory restrictions are changing the industry’s vision of the global management of water.

The industry’s demand for water is high and water treatment has become a key component in their operations. They require a complete range of water treatment solutions for the production of injection water, treatment of produced water, reuse, and effluent treatment.

In relation to the water cycle of this sector, Aqualogy offer solutions and technologies effective for the various treatment levels, including physical, physicochemical and biological, in addition to solutions to treat polluted water for reuse in industrial processes.

Our expertise includes:

  • Network cleaning
  • Leak detection & pipe condition assessment
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Water quality & biosafety services
  • Design, construction, operation and maintenance of:
    • Process water conditioning plants
    • Wastewater treatment plants
    • Process water reclamation and reuse plants
  • Water resource optimisation

Study, design and construction of water treatment plants

DEVELOPMENT OF ELECTROCHEMICAL TECHNIQUES FOR THE TREATMENT OF CONGENITAL WATER FOR SUBSEQUENT RETURN TO RIVERS, SEAS AND DEPLETED WELLS (PEMEX, MEXICO). 2012

The first experimental plant using electrochemical techniques has been specifically designed to deal with the major water flows managed in the sector.

WATER, CARBON FOOTPRINT

The water footprint (WF) is an essential indicator to calculate sustainability in the use of natural resources by humans.

Many organisations are conscious of their carbon footprint and are actively trying to reduce it. Although saving energy is an obvious strategy, saving water is also very effective due to the energy used in water treatment processes. Therefore Aqualogy provide both water and carbon efficiency audits.

Water efficiency audits provide bespoke plans for water savings and to minimise costs, without losing process efficiency and effectiveness.

Analysis of an organisation’s carbon footprint covers everything from the study and development of a procedure for establishing greenhouse gas emissions, to the planning and management to reduce these. It includes all the activities and infrastructures associated with the complete water cycle.

NETWORK CLEANING

Aqualogy offer a highly effective and low risk pipe line cleaning technology, Ice Pigging, which cleans the inside of pipes using a thick ice slurry. The service is offered as an alternative to conventional pipeline-pigging and other pipeline cleaning techniques.

Ice Pigging technology is based on harnessing the complex properties and unparalleled benefits of ice slurries. Semi-solid ice can be applied uniquely because it is both pumpable like a liquid, but also takes on properties of a solid when a ‘pig’ of ice is formed within a pipe.

LEAK DETECTION & PIPE CONDITION ASSESMENT

In order to improve the performance of networks we offer leak detection and location services. These services have been developed as a more accurate and efficient alternative to conventional acoustic methods.

Increasing network efficiency, the service has been identified as an effective method to identify leaks in plastic pipes and/or low network pressures with a very high level of accuracy, saving time and resources.

As the solution uses helium as a tracer-gas method this enables the detection of leaks without interrupting the water service.

DESIGN, BUILD, O&M WATER & WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANTS

Including the evaluation, design, construction, project management, commissioning, maintenance and operation, optimisation and one-off or periodic control of water and effluent treatment plants, and tertiary treatments for reuse and reverse osmosis desalination plants.

Our objective is to optimise water treatment plants through the application of Aqualogy’s own innovative technology, minimising energy consumption and improving performance levels.

Providing turnkey projects we cover the complete water cycle, including water softeners, deionisers, removal of nitrates, iron, manganese, boron, filtration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, coagulation-flocculation-decanting physicochemical treatments, and disinfection. Aqualogy also deliver water treatment solutions, including methods for treating sludge and odours generated by the industry.

OPTIMISATION OF WATER AND WASTEWATER PROCESS

The oil and gas industry have a high demand for water so effective water, wastewater and effluent treatment processes are essential. Aqualogy are focussed on developing innovative solutions to optimise these processes.

Using our solutions to optimise the water and wastewater treatment will deliver:

  • A reduced level of process issues
  • Regulatory compliance
  • A reduction in overall operational costs

Our team of experts work with customers to provide bespoke tailored solutions to reduce the running costs of their assets, increase operational efficiency and improve environmental performance.

ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS

Aqualogy provide a full range of environmental and analytical services covering water management needs. For the Oil and Gas industry the analysis of processes and their effects on the natural environment is key to ensure processes have minimal impact.

Aqualogy can provide:

  • Analytical control of water quality
  • Quality management of process waters and discharges
  • Environmental consultancy and monitoring
  • Environmental management systems

TREATMENT AND REUSE: PROCESS WATER

Water scarcity and the need for proper management pose serious challenges for water intensive industries.

Treating wastewater streams to allow reuse in industrial processes creates a sustainable and more efficient process management method. With the aim of optimising water consumption, Aqualogy conducts studies and undertakes projects to optimise various water flows.

With a comprehensive understanding of the uses of water in production processes, we can make proposals and deliver measures to improve, optimise and reduce the consumption of water and associated scopes (energy, chemical reagents and sludge management).

We offer a wide range of applications that treat and reuse process water, all while maximizing treatment capacity, reducing VOC emissions, improving safety and reducing costs.

iDROLOC

iDROLOC

This innovative leak detection system has been designed with the customer as the focus. By using helium to detect leaks it ensures no interruptions to the network, unlike more traditional acoustic detection systems.

The technology injects helium in to the pipe, which then acts as a tracer gas to quickly and effectively identify leaks in the network. With a number of different functions it can enable the approximate size of leak to be determined, perform water tightness tests on sectored zones and also act as a tool to assess the condition of large-diameter supply connections and seals.

EQ TECH

EQ TECH

Aqualogy ECT is suitable for the Oil and Gas industry and will remove heavy metals. Oils and waste water with very high COD can be treated where conventional treatment will not meet regulatory compliance.

ICE PIGGING

ICE PIGGING

Ice Pigging is an innovative pipeline cleaning solution that uses an ice slurry. Offered as an alternative to conventional pipeline-pigging and other pipeline cleaning techniques, Ice Pigging is highly effective and low risk.
