On Site Produced Water Treatment Solutions
Ecosphere Energy Services is a leading water treatment provider to the energy services sector. Currently, we provide a range of water treatment and recycling technologies and services to energy companies in the natural gas industry with onsite, chemical free solutions that kill bacteria and reduce scaling at high flow rates using Ecosphere’s patented Ozonix® Technology. Our team is regularly solving major water challenges in the field and we are continually developing new and innovative Ozonix® solutions for a wide variety of customers and energy applications.
Through ongoing technical development and collaboration with our customers, we are redefining the way produced water can be treated in the energy industry.
In the past, produced water was often disposed of via evaporation ponds and class II deep injection disposal wells. Today, we are helping the oil and natural gas industry to treat, recycle and re-use produced water reducing costs and increasing operational efficiencies and capacity.
Oil and Gas
The Ozonix® technology has been used to recycle BILLIONS of gallons of produced water and hydraulic fracturing fluids on hundreds of wells in the United States. Ozonix® eliminates the need for costly, liquid chemical biocides typically used to manage bactieria, microbial growth and corrosion. The Ozonix® technology is cost-efficient and enables energy companies to preserve vital water resources and ensure on-going sustainability.
Ozonix® Solutions for Produced Water Treatment:
Onsite flowback and produced water treatment
Prior to the introduction of the Ecosphere Ozonix® technology, flowback water had to be loaded into tanker trucks and hauled away to deep-injection sites or holding ponds. The Ecosphere Ozonix® water treatment technology has eliminated the need for wastewater trucking and allows operators to re-use 100% of their water in current and future operations.
Water disinfection and sterilization
For every industry, clean water is critical to sustainable, profitable operations. Through a proprietary advanced oxidation process, Ecosphere’s patented, chemical-free Ozonix® water treatment technology is helping companies in industries around the world mitigate risks and protect assets, through cost-effective and environmentally responsible disinfection, oxidation and sterilization of water.
Oxidation of contaminants
Ozonix® helps decrease liability and improve capacity through the chemical free treatment of all bacteria, soluble organics and hydrocarbons in your water cycle; eliminating the need for hazardous chemicals.
Process water treatment
Effective process water treatment is critical to improving capacity, protecting assets, and lowering energy costs. For over a decade, Ecosphere has been helping companies solve some of the most significant industrial process water challenges on the planet – cost effectively and chemically free.
Bacteria treatment and control
Ozonix® is a patented, chemical-free technology that provides high volume bacteria and corrosion control, completely oxidizing bacteria and destroying bacteria cell walls without the use of liquid chemicals that have to be transported through communities and handled onsite.
The untreated buildup of biofilms can cripple systems and threaten profitable operations. Although chemical-based solutions are prevalent, they can be expensive, ineffective and hazardous to both employees and the environment, increasing organizational liability. The patented Ecosphere Ozonix® technology is a chemical-free alternative that leverages a proven advanced oxidation process to effectively destroy biofilms.
Prevention of scaling, corrosion, and biofouling
Ozonix® will help operators protect assets and improve productivity by effectively combatting scaling, corrosion, and biofouling, while eliminating costly biocides and reducing scale inhibitors needed for corrosion control.
Enhanced oil recovery
Ozonix® has been used to recycle 2 billion gallons of fluid on hundreds of wells in the natural gas industry. Using hydroxyl radicals (OH-) as a disinfectant, Ozonix® eliminates the need for costly, liquid chemical biocides used to manage microbial growth, and boosts capacity by substantially lowering the level of friction reducers needed to control surface treating pressures and reducing fluid turbulence during fracturing.
Coal fly ash treatment
With clean air requirements becoming increasingly stringent, and nearly 70 millions tons of fly ash being produced annually in the United States alone, The need for cost-effective, environmentally friendly coal fly ash treatment has never been greater. Ozonix® is a proven, chemical-free alternative to existing chemical based coal fly ash treatment solutions, leveraging a patented advanced oxidation process to effectively treat coal fly ash for discharge or reuse without the creation of additional waste streams or the need for hazardous chemicals.
Cooling tower water treatment and makeup
Increasing the performance and uptime of cooling water systems while reducing operational costs is an ongoing challenge for industries around the world. Achieving this balance in an environmentally friendly manner is another. Inefficient and contaminated cooling water systems can be a major expense and present a hazard to employees. An effective, chemical free alternative to cooling water treatment is now a reality with Ozonix®. Ozonix® leverages an advanced, industry proven, oxidation process to control microbial growth, reduce operational costs, and protect both your capital investment and the environment.
Organic pollutant destruction
Ozonix® water and wastewater treatment technology is helping organizations around the world mitigate risks and improve capacity by completely – and cost effectively – oxidizing all soluble organics in water; eliminating the need for chemical biocides used to control microbial growth.
Wastewater pretreatment involves the treatment of wastewater produced by industrial operations to remove pollutants before the wastewater can be safely discharged. This discharge is highly regulated, and as industrial and commercial operations vary, so do the nature of contaminants. Ecosphere’s proven, chemical-free Ozonix® technology will help commercial and industrial operations achieve cost-effective wastewater pretreatment to produce environmentally safe effluent that is suitable for discharge.
Although nuclear power plants require 2.3 liters of water for every kilowatt hour of electricity generated, much of that water can be reclaimed from municipal greywater or industrial wastewater, particularly when used for purposes such as boiler feed and cooling water. Ozonix® can offer customers cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly water reclamation plus end pipe wastewater that is treated to a tertiary level, free of contaminates for discharge in an open loop cooling system or for reuse in a closed loop system.
