Siemens Receives Wyoming Permit for Treating Produced Water

March 11, 2010
Permit enables the company to expedite produced water services

Siemens has received a Wyoming statewide Chapter 3 permit for treatment of produced water. The permit enables Siemens to expedite produced water services because the pilot requirements and system configuration have already been reviewed by the state.

The permit application was modeled after an existing plant in the Powder River Basin that uses Siemens equipment to treat coal-bed-methane (CBM)-produced water to Powder River discharge standards. While the permit is specific to the reverse osmosis/recovery reverse osmosis (RO/RRO) process, it encompasses both fixed-plant and mobile services.

McLaughlin Water Eng. Ltd., Denver, represented Siemens to the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality for the permit application. McLaughlin evaluated more than a year's worth of operating data at the Powder River Basin plant and evaluated Siemens' RO/RRO treatment design for reliability and robustness. The design allows the system to operate efficiently, with recoveries typically greater than 93%.

"By receiving this permit, Siemens can expedite construction plans or deployment of mobile assets, as preliminary requirements have already been addressed through the permitting processes," said James Welch, Siemens' business development manager for produced water services. "This will benefit our CMB-produced water customers because of the shorter time required to initiate construction of water plans or receive our mobile equipment."
