Mackenzie River scour study
Advisian provided detailed modeling of the hydrodynamics and morphology of the Mackenzie River to determine the facilities that were at risk and provide mitigation strategies related to long term closure plans.
Water Supply Optimization - Playing With a Full Deck
Project feasibility is often dependent on identifying and establishing a reliable water source. Lucien Lyness explains how subsurface regimes are often overlooked, despite offering vast naturally-occurring storage capacity and regional continuity.
Desalination for cost-effective water production
In the last four decades there has been a steady increase in the use of desalination for low salinity, high quality water production from high salinity or low quality source water. This increase has been due to improvements in the desalination technologies used, a steady decrease over time in the cost of producing desalinated water compared to treating fresh water from diminishing quality surface or ground water sources, and stricter government regulations for wastewater discharges, making wastewater reclamation an increasingly viable alternative to treating fresh water.
Coal seam gas water - the challenge of upstream interfaces
Coal seam gas produced water passes through multiple systems and processes as it moves from well to beneficial use. Understanding and managing the inter- and intra-system interfaces – and selecting the right solution – is crucial to achieving a successful outcome for capital and operating costs, water quality, beneficial use of treated water and brine, and overall asset integrity.
Beneficial reuse of produced water – developments in policy, technology and economics
Given the geography of many producing oil and gas fields in the Middle East, Central West USA and other water-scarce locations, there is an increasing interest in the potential water resource value of produced water.
Industry’s approach to water use – Is now the time for significant change?
The pressure on water resources will ultimately result in a change in how water is priced, regulated, and perceived.
Ground Water Protection Council releases report on produced water
Advisian is a leader in water for upstream and midstream, and played a major role in the recently published Ground Water Protection Council’s Produced Water Report, serving on the leadership team and primary author of Module 2.
WorleyParsons and WatershipBlue Announce Master Services Agreement
Under the Master Services Agreement (MSA), WorleyParsons and its global advisory and consulting business line, Advisian, will provide services to support WatershipBlue’s design, production, operation, and delivery of waterships worldwide.
Overcoming water scarcity
The world’s climate has a limited ability to evaporate sea water, generate rain clouds and replenish creeks, rivers and lakes with fresh water – water is a limited resource.
