About this book

Introduction

Produced Water:  Environmental Risks and Advances in Mitigation Technologies

The discharge of produced water from offshore oil and gas facilities remains an environmental concern due to uncertainty regarding its fate, transport and potential biological effects. This book of peer-reviewed papers from active scientific practitioners around the globe, provides an overview of current knowledge and emerging issues of concern related to the discharge of produced water at sea.  Topics covered include:

 

  • Chemical composition and characterization of constituents
  • Analytical procedures for determination the composition and characterization of constituents
  • Identification of biological effects
  • Environmental effects monitoring (EEM) protocols
  • Biodegradation and bioaccumulation
  • Modeling of fate, transport, potential effects and environmental risk
  • Advances in mitigation technologies
  • Policies and regulations for treatment and disposal
  •  

    This book will be of use to scientists, environmental managers, regulators, and industry representatives, as well as members of the public wishing to gain an improved knowledge on the discharge of produced water from offshore oil and gas facilities for the protection of our ocean environment and its resources.
