Produced Water

As regulations become more stringent and communities more closely monitor oil and gas operations, water operators must ensure that produced water is tested, treated and that it meets specific environmental compliance and safety standards.

Produced water often needs to be treated before it can be safely returned back to the environment, and, in order to do so, operators must understand produced water makeup so that chemicals, heavy metals, and dissolved solids can be identified and removed. Each operation has their own unique processed water composition and therefore require different parameters and contaminants to be tracked and removed. 

The KETOS SHIELD gives water operators real-time visibility into the makeup of their produced water in order to know what needs to be removed and whether or not treatment processes have been successful. The KETOS analytics platform monitors over 30 parameters, including salinity and heavy metals. As a modular solution, KETOS hardware can be placed at multiple strategic points to monitor water quality in real-time and with ppb lab accuracy.

Did You Know?

In America, 2.5 billion gallons of produced water is extracted along with oil and gas daily.

Water is essential in drilling, pressure maintenance, and all stages of production.

Unconventional oil and gas extraction has brought environmental concerns, especially related to water, to the forefront.
