36 | May 2017 | hartenergy.com WATER MANAGEMENT: TECHNOLOGY SHOWCASE collecting field gas is uneconomical, the evapora- tor becomes a flare alternative that also evaporates produced water, solving two concerns in one device. The HydroFlare provides the flexibility the produced water management program needs. hydrozonix.com Better mixing at a lower pressure drop Inyo Process has developed a series of integrated injection systems designed specifically to work with the Storm Mixer series of static mixers. These inte- grated products are designed to provide better mix- ing at a lower pressure drop than traditional static mixers. These mixers are nonfouling and can handle sludge and dirty waste streams that would clog other types of mixing equipment. These injection systems include retractable injectors, fixed injectors and gas/ liquid injectors for CO 2 . They can be used to meet difficult environmental challenges including treat- ing produced water, emulsion breaking and dewater- ing of oil sand mature fine tailing. These integrated products can be used with polymers, acid and caus- tic injection for pH control, and sludge/dewatering activities. inyoprocess.com Rig-based, modular system treats, recycles slop water The ENVIROUNIT offshore slop water treatment system from M-I SWACO, a Schlumberger company, provides a rig-based, modular process for treating and recycling slop water, which is especially advan- tageous in offshore and remote environments. The technology enables the extraction of expensive oil- and synthetic-based drilling fluid from slop water to make it reusable in drilling practices, saving consid- erable costs. Leftover water receives further cleaning to reach a level permissible for overboard discharge either onshore or offshore. Overall waste volume is reduced by more than 90%, and the previously con- taminated water is treated so thoroughly that it can be discharged in compliance with the most stringent environmental regulations. The system also reduces the overall environmental footprint of drilling oper- ations. It minimizes the fluid waste sent to shore for disposal and reduces carbon emissions by decreas- ing transport with supply vessels to shore and road transport from harbor to disposal facility. slb.com The HydroFlare evaporator can help resolve water disposal issues.
