PITTSBURGH, PA, Apr. 15, 2011 -- A new produced water treatment system at a California oilfield will provide 25,000 barrels of treated water per day (bpd) for use as Once Through Steam Generation (OTSG) make-up and 20,000 bpd for surface water discharge.
The system is planned for the Produced Water Reclamation Facility at Plains Exploration & Production Company's (PXP) Arroyo Grande Oilfield in San Luis Obispo County, CA.
Veolia Water will design, build, and operate the 45,000-bpd facility under a 12-year performance agreement. The treatment system will incorporate Veolia Water's OPUS® II technology to generate treated water that meets or exceeds state and federal permit requirements.
