How much do you know about SWD?

Slop oil, production water, skim oil, injection wells, evaporation ponds, recycled pit water—salt water disposal is an important part of the oil industry. Take a few minutes to read about our revolutionary solutions that are creating remarkable results in the SWD industry around the world.

Suspended Solids Removal at SWD Facilities

An injection well in Ohio was suffering from a reduction in injectivity. The rapid plugging of the hole resulted in work stoppages, and expensive equipment repairs and treatments. Facility managers realized something needed to change with their chemistry, so they...

SWD Injection Wells: Reduced Flows and Increased Pressures

In many states around the U.S., SWD injection wells are big business. On average, 10 barrels of salt water are produced for each barrel of crude oil. Much of that water is then put back into SWD injection wells, which has been the standard practice in the industry for...

Water Injection Well Fails When Fluid is Bad
