Increasing water scarcity is driving the need for smart and efficient water treatment technologies. Oil and gas production generates significant volumes of wastewater. Due to its nature, treatment is necessary to ensure the water meets state and federal regulations before disposal or to meet the specifications necessary for recycling.

The wastewater—or produced water as it is commonly known—is water that was trapped in underground formations and was brought to the surface along with the oil or gas during production. Learn more about the usage of water in oil and gas in this infographic.
