This course covers the treatment methods required to allow reinjection of produced water into a producing formation. While the course material focuses on land-based operations, the majority of the treatment methods discussed are equally applicable to offshore production facilities. Produced water is the associated water that is produced along with oil and/or gas during normal production operations. Produced water is not a marketable product, so it must be disposed of. In many land-based production operations, the produced water is either injected into a disposal well or is reinjected into a producing well to maintain reservoir pressure and enhance oil recovery. Produced water must be treated prior to reinjection because many of the components can be harmful to the formation or the associated piping. In the case of suspended oil associated with the produced water, it can be separated and sold to generate revenue for the facility.

The course material is based on the technical paper "Practical Application of Produced Water Treating Technology for Land-Based Injection Operations" by Kevin A. Juniel - NATCO Group, Houston, TX.
