Establishing Technologies for Subsea Produced Water Management

The need to shift infrastructure and processing directly to the subsea floor remains high on the oil and gas industry’s agenda to ensure the economic recovery of deepwater reserves. A key aspect of this involves the separation and subsequent management of produced water (water produced as a by-product with oil & gas). This has led to a requirement to establish suitable technologies which can be deployed subsea to allow the continual monitoring of water quality during production and eliminating the need for costly sampling using ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles). These can cost $250,000 per day.

To address the technology gaps and challenges involved, NEL is leading a Joint Industry Project to support the development and independent evaluation of potential water quality measurement devices. This research project is being supported by NEL’s new, purpose-built oil-in-water measurement flow facility based in East Kilbride. The facility is set to play a pivotal part in the roll-out of subsea separation and monitoring technologies into the field.
