The composition of produced water varies greatly depending on the source and the processes used to produce it. Salts, heavy metals, suspended particles, hydrocarbons and other pollutants can all be present. Treating such a complex mixture requires tailored solutions. Many produced water treatment methods, such as membrane filtration and thermal processes, can be energy-intensive.
The cost of designing, constructing and operating produced water treatment facilities can be substantial. Smaller operators or companies in financially constrained regions may face challenges in implementing advanced treatment technologies. Some treatment processes generate secondary waste products or emissions that need to be managed properly. For example, desalination processes can produce concentrated brine, posing disposal challenges.
The global produced water treatment market is segmented based on production source, treatment, application, end-user and region.
In 2022, chemical treatment is expected to be the dominant segment in the global market covering around 1/3rd of the market. The initial quality of produced water, including the levels of contaminants such as oil, solids and dissolved substances, can impact the choice of chemical treatment methods. Environmental regulations and discharge standards set by regulatory authorities can dictate the use of chemical treatment in produced water treatment.
