10 May 2012 – Press Release
Newfield’s Uintah Basin water treatment operations in Utah began in April 2011. The company’s state-of-the-art Sand Wash facility consists of two processes. This includes "conventional treatment" to water readily suitable for water flood injection. Conventional treatment can process up to 10,000 barrels of water per day of produced water (the fluid that comes out of well bore consisting of oil, gas and water). The produced water is separated at the well pad from the oil and gas. The produced water is currently trucked to the Sand Wash facility for treatment and is eventually re-injected into the producing formation for enhanced oil recovery.
Another process at Sand Wash is the “Environmentally Clean Systems” (ECS) treatment of produced water that requires additional processing before reinjection. The facility can recycle up to 18,000 barrels per day of this produced water that would be otherwise unusable for enhanced oil recovery. The ECS process allows the Company to more comprehensively remove "solids" and residual oil from the water so there is no "plugging" of geologic formation that might impact permeability.
Newfield currently operates the Sand Wash and six other facilities (and one yet to be built). These additional facilities are similar to Sand Wash but only Sand Wash has ECS.
