The Technology Identification Module is an interactive tool for identifying appropriate produced water management strategies for a given well location and circumstances.
The Technology Identification Module follows the philosophy of a. three-tiered water management/pollution prevention hierarchy (i.e., minimization, recycle/reuse, and disposal). Water management options with the lowest environmental impacts are encouraged ahead of those with more significant environmental impacts. The Technology Identification Module helps identify water management options, but users should also consider their own site-specific costs and water volumes.
How it Works
Users will be asked to answer a series of questions about the location of the well site, physical features of the site that may allow or inhibit the use of various options, whether the regulatory agency with jurisdiction allows or prohibits particular options, and whether cost or the user's company policy would preclude any options. Nearly all questions are set up for only "yes" or "no" responses. Depending on how the initial questions are answered, users will face additional questions. Some of these can be answered immediately, while others may require further investigation of other portions of this web site or external information. Suitable options will be identified as users complete the questions, and users will be able to print out a summary of suitable options when the process is completed.
We are sorry for the inconvenience but this application is currently unavailable. We will be releasing a new version very soon.
