CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, Jan. 20, 2014 -- A major exploration and production company in Canada recently employed a steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) evaporation system to treat produced water associated with the production of 40,000 barrels of bitumen per day (bbl/d).

The SAGD system, awarded to Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies in 2010, was successfully launched in the late third quarter of 2013. The technology is now the largest evaporation system operating in Alberta.

Comprised of three HPD® Evaporators, the system utilizes Veolia's Silica Sorption™ Process, which enables the controlled precipitation of silica within the HPD Evaporators. This offers the important benefit of removing the silica as a potential foulant to the produced water processing equipment, a potential foulant to the disposal well piping system, and a foulant to the disposal well formation.

Since its startup, the Veolia system has operated continuously after first steam injection and subsequent, initial oil production. As the SAGD facility progresses towards its full production rate slated by late 2014, the produced water treatment system will reach its nameplate capacity.
