Chlorine Dioxide Oil and Gas Treatment
The oil and gas industry rely on chlorine dioxide for oil and gas treatment with several water treatment options. PureLine has stepped to the forefront of custom equipment and application design and manufacturing to cater to the unique challenges presented by the sometimes harsh and geographically remote locations in which production takes place. Don’t settle for anything less than chlorine dioxide (ClO2).
Chlorine Dioxide Effectiveness
Provided below are examples of Chlorine Dioxide’s effectiveness on biofilm, along with a short clip of chlorine dioxide treating produced water from the field. PureLine has partnerships with many O&G companies to treat produced water to be reused in potabale water systems.
Chlorine Dioxide effective on biofilm
The Center for Biofilm Engineering at Montana State University has studied the effects of Chlorine Dioxide on biofilm, and has seen superb results on chlorine dioxide inhibiting and eliminating biofilm
Chlorine Dioxide Treats Produced Water
Within seconds, PureLine’s chlorine dioxide reacts with and treats produced water from the oil field.
On-the-Fly Frac Water Treatment
PureLine incorporates three-precursor, on site generation of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) to effectively treat hydraulic fracturing water on the fly. Fresh water and up to 100% produced water are treated at rates up to, and exceeding, 100 barrels per minute. Redundant systems guarantee uptime (99.97%, 2018). Oxidation of H2S, FeS (and other sulfides), SRB (sulfate reducing bacteria), APB (acid producing bacteria) coupled low residual levels of chlorine dioxide offers treated frac water that does not adversely affect frac fluid systems. Live feed monitoring offers clients a 24/7 view of treatment dose, residual chlorine dioxide, pH levels and water flow to ensure total treatment. Mobile units are staffed 24 hours/day.
Poseidon tanks are treated to manage H2S, destroy bacteria, or settle out unwanted metals. PureLine has available monitoring systems and technologies as part of treating tanks.
Salt Water Disposal
PureLine incorporates three-precursor, on-site generation of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) to effectively treat produced or flowback water for disposal or reuse. Redundant systems guarantee uptime (99.97%, 2018). Oxidation of H2S, FeS (and other sulfides), SRB (sulfate reducing bacteria), APB (acid producing bacteria) coupled low residual levels of chlorine dioxide offers treated water for reuse or for disposal while maintaining the integrity of the SWD system and wellbore. Live feed monitoring offers clients a 24/7 view of treatment dose, residual chlorine dioxide, pH levels and water flow to ensure total treatment. Permanent or semi-permanent installations are designed to run unmanned with remote monitoring and control capabilities.
PureLine’s enhanced acidization well stimulation incorporates chlorine dioxide (ClO2), solvent, and nano surfactant in addition to the traditional HCL. Chlorine dioxide oxidizes the H2S in solution to form HCL and soluble SO4-2 ions. Fe2+ and Cl- are present in solution. Chlorine dioxide then penetrates the biomatrix. The iron sulfide is oxidized to soluble Fe+3, Cl- and SO4-2. Because the iron sulfide is oxidized all the way to iron sulfate (FeSO4), it remains soluble when pH normalizes and will not precipitate. Thus, breaking the traditional acidizing cycle. H2S has been completely oxidized by the chlorine dioxide. When the well is put back online the sulfur compounds have been converted from insoluble sulfides to soluble sulfates and the biofilm is gone.
Line Clean Outs
Chlorine dioxide has proven successful in efforts to clean pipelines and tanks. Even those that have gone untreated for years. Biofilm is present in all pipelines and tanks and adds to the degradation of the system. By harboring SRBs and APBs biofilm will degrade the infrastructure of pipelines/tanks and the quality of water that enters a system. Repeatedly, PureLine experiences cases in which water entering a pipeline/tank system is much higher quality than when the water reaches the distal end. Chlorine dioxide is superior to other oxidizers in penetrating biofilm, inactivating biofilm bacteria and aiding in maintaining the integrity of the system.
PureLine incorporates three-precursor, on site generation of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) to effectively treat pits. Redundant systems guarantee uptime (99.97%, 2018). Oxidation of H2S, FeS (and other sulfides), SRB (sulfate reducing bacteria), APB (acid producing bacteria) coupled low residual levels of chlorine dioxide offers treated water for reuse. Live feed monitoring offers clients a 24/7 view of treatment dose, residual chlorine dioxide, pH levels and water flow to ensure total treatment. Mobile units are deployed for pit treatments at turn rates of 100 barrels per minute
Pureline offers water transfer services for pit to pit and fracturing efforts. An array of 600 and 325 HP pumps coupled with 12” HDPE/TPE hose accommodate fresh and produced water transfers. Automation is the name of the game. Many companies speak of it but PureLine delivers. Pump start/stop, pump speed, pump monitoring (fuel consumption, battery charge, inlet/outlet pressures, coolant temperature etc.), tank and pit level sensing and cascading pump control based upon flow set rates are all components of PAWS (PureLine Automated Water System).
PURELINE AUTOMATED WATER SYSTEM (PAWS)
PureLine has developed proprietary software and hardware control systems for the automation of oilfield water transfer. This automated solution, PAWS, provides realtime monitoring and control of diesel pumps, flow levels, and pressures. Operators can control water transfer systems in remote areas with or without available cellular networks.
One of the unique aspects of PureLine is our ability to create custom solutions to meet our partner’s needs. None is more evident than the mobile trailers we design to meet even the most demanding requirements. Our expert staff of engineers, chemists, and technicians pool together decades of experience to create mobile solutions that deliver results ranging from simple on-site trials to reliably operating in sub-zero temperatures and the harsh terrain encountered in the oil fields.
With safety and redundancy always primary guidelines in our designs, every system is meticulously engineered to achieve the desired results without negatively impacting the environment or those that interact with the equipment.
