Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

New CCS and geothermal projects will require novel produced water treatment technologies to process HP/HT saline produced water streams. These can contain components such as methane and CO2 in addition to the contaminants present in produced waters from oil and gas producing fields. Some of the existing produced water technologies are suitable and qualified for these applications, while in some areas the design envelope needs to be enlarged, or new technologies are needed. Various aspects around these topics will be discussed.
