By Exterran | May 31, 2019

Exterran Corp., a global systems and process company offering solutions in the oil, gas, water and power markets, announces its Water Solutions business has secured a significant produced water treatment contract with a major operator in the Midland area of the Permian basin.

The 30,000 barrels of water-per-day (bwpd) treatment system includes the removal of oil-in-water, suspended solids and iron. Offered as a turnkey package, the provided solution also includes accessories, manpower, and remote monitoring and reporting of water treatment data.

The contract follows a successful three-month pilot in late 2018, where Exterran met or exceeded oil-in-water, suspended solids and iron outlet performance levels.

Todd Kirk, director of water at Exterran, said: “Over the past two decades, we have had many successful produced water operations around the world in over a dozen countries. These include a wide range of unique solutions designed to help meet any customer need from small mobile units that are lightweight, easy to ship, install and start-up to handling over a million bwpd of produced water at large processing facilities.

“Customers appreciate our expertise, efficiency and operational excellence. By partnering with a turnkey produced water specialist like Exterran, operators not only get a reliable portfolio of technologies, but also a team of experts to solve their water challenges and support them at a moment’s notice. Facility simplification, data acquisition, AI and experienced technicians help to solve manpower limitations in the basin and improve operations efficiency.”  

Exterran offers operators a full range of primary, secondary and tertiary treatment solutions for removing oil, contaminants and suspended solids from produced water. The company designs, builds, and operates systems that quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively treat produced water ranging in volumes from 100 to in excess of 1,000,000 bwpd.
