Water Stream Mixing Analysis & Modelling

Have Questions? Let's Discuss​ Water Stream Mixing Analysis & Modelling

Chemical Modelling, Operational Risk Evaluations

The Challenge

Integrated Sustainability was asked to evaluate source water from a different formation in order to reduce the pressure in this formation.  This was done to mitigate risk associated with the increasing pressure on an existing disposal water aquifer.

The Result

Integrated Sustainability successfully identified that dissolved mineral levels were not a concern within the new formation.  Integrated Sustainability used OLI chemical modelling software to study potential operational impacts and provided both short-term and long-term solution recommendations for the optimal blend and allocation of source waters between different operating facilities.  The study results provided a useful guideline document for the clients’ operations team to mitigate precipitation and scaling issues.

Source Water Treatment & Pipeline Study

Changing regulatory requirements surrounding the use of fresh water for Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) heavy oil extraction resulted in the need for this study. Through it, Integrated Sustainability was able to provide a quantitative comparison of the capital, operational and maintenance costs of all feasible water options, while validating the basis of design and the technical feasibility of pipeline transport and on-site water treatment.
