Development of an electrocoagulation based treatment train for produced water with high concentrations of organic matter
Well stimulation in the form of hydraulic fracturing has made unconventional oil and gas extraction economically feasible, significantly increasing the number of producing oil and gas wells in the United States in the last several decades. Both the hydraulic fracturing process and shale play development has created a large amount of oil and gas associated wastewater. Deep well injection or disposal wells are the preferred and most widely used method for managing produced water. This industry standard both eliminates valuable water resources from the hydrologic cycle and can be linked to the ...
