Investorideas.com - New Oil and Gas Sources Require Innovation in Water

The oil and gas industry produces billions of barrels of toxic water each year; Lux Research assesses companies and technologies that can treat this water

Boston, MA – October 18, 2010 (www.investorideas.com water stocks newswire) – Along with the crude oil and natural gas that fuels modern civilization, the energy industry brings nearly 233 billion barrels of wastewater from beneath the earth's surface every year. This so-called "produced water" can contain a variety of contaminants – from oil and grease to chemicals, microorganisms, and radioactive elements, and oil and gas producers need to treat this water before disposal or reuse. In its latest report, Lux Research surveys the challenges and opportunities associated with treating produced water, and identifies which technologies and developers are best positioned to address the task.

Titled "Water Technology Unlocks Future Oil and Gas Reserves," the report provides a comprehensive examination of the different contaminants, treatment technologies, and costs associated with treating produced water, and ranks 33 companies across 15 criteria to determine which are the most likely winners and losers.

"On top of the large volumes of produced water generated from day to day, there is also a great deal of variety in the contaminants from site to site," said Reka Sumangali, an analyst for Lux Research and the report's lead author. "Because of that variation, no technology provides a silver bullet that can treat every contaminant or application. Plus, most regulatory drivers focus on single contaminants; so there is little push to develop a cure-all technology."

In preparing its report, Lux Research interviewed dozens of technology developers and oil and gas companies in order to evaluate the available technologies for treating produced water. Based on these interviews and its extensive database of water industry players, Lux Research ranked and plotted technology developers on a grid measuring two axes: market value and technology value. It applied grids to four application areas: Onshore conventional oil, onshore unconventional oil, onshore unconventional gas, and offshore exploration. Among the report's key findings:

Regulation drives technology deployment. Technology providers and energy companies interviewed by Lux Research all agreed that regulations drive the use of new solutions, but regulations requiring more than basic treatment have not yet been established. That situation, however, is changing as regulatory environments in the Middle East, North Sea, and South America are all becoming stricter.
Accelerating membrane research is leading to new water treatment innovation. A wide range of technologies – including membranes, advanced oxidation, coagulants, and UV disinfection – can address the hydrocarbons, salts, solids, and microbes in produced water. But many of these contaminants can reduce a particular technology's ability to effectively treat other contaminants. One technology area that has seen notable research is ceramic membranes, which are more resilient to hydrocarbons, and easier to clean when fouling occurs.
Corporate partnerships provide the clearest growth opportunities. Partnering with a larger technology developer holds the most opportunity for smaller companies. Those that bring an established Technology or Market value to the table can enable a larger technology provider to extend its treatment train – merging, for example, a membrane company like H2O Innovation, an ion exchange company like Purolite, and an absorbant company like Gradek Energy, Abtech Industries or MyCelx Technology.
"Water Technology Unlocks Future Oil and Gas Reserves," is part of the Lux Water Intelligence service. Clients subscribing to this service receive ongoing research on market and technology trends, continuous technology scouting reports and proprietary data points in the weekly Lux Research Water Journal, and on-demand inquiry with Lux Research analysts.

Water Stocks; GE’s (NYSE: GE) Next Generation Cooling Water Technology Brings Cost and Water Savings to Industrial Users

Water Stocks; GE’s (NYSE: GE) Next Generation Cooling Water Technology Brings Cost and Water Savings to Industrial Users

•Upgraded GenGard Technology is Expanded to Work in Even Tougher Conditions

•New Product to Play Important Role in Responsible Water Management

TREVOSE, Pa.--(http://www.investorideas.com/ water stocks blog )--With rising energy costs and strains on capacity, industrial facilities are pressed to do more with less, striving to optimize efficiency while keeping costs to a minimum. Responding to these requirements, GE (NYSE: GE) today introduced its latest cooling water technology, GenGard 8000. GenGard 8000 offers the capability to use lower quality water in the cooling process, while avoiding corrosion and fouling problems. This provides savings in operating costs and improves the efficiency of the cooling system, which results in greater production output, water conservation and the ability to use alternative water sources.



“This next generation of GenGard chemistry is a robust treatment program that helps customers meet their specific requirements and allows them to do more with existing resources.”

.This new technology is an extension of the existing GenGard product line that covers the full spectrum of water conditions, ensuring reliable results even in the toughest operating conditions. The next generation of GenGard also will reduce the need for sulfuric acid in cooling water systems, minimizing the impact on the environment.

Industrial facilities consume large amounts of water to cool process equipment, resulting in a critical need for cooling water systems that can reuse the same water repeatedly in the process. Corrosion and microbiological fouling must be controlled to ensure safe, reliable and efficient operation of cooling systems.
The new GenGard chemistry expands GE’s water treatment product line into the full pH spectrum, from neutral to alkaline cooling water applications, ensuring reliable results. Incorporating the most advanced deposit and corrosion additives available, GenGard 8000 can, in many cases, eliminate the need for sulfuric acid for pH control. This reduction or elimination of acid usage at industrial facilities not only helps to reduce operational costs and increase environmental benefits, but it also makes GE’s innovative GenGard chemistry a technology that is available to customers ahead of industry regulations requiring acid reduction.

“With water consumption increasing on a global level, GE continues to invest in next generation technologies and innovative solutions to address global water challenges and help create a more sustainable environment,” said Nancy White, product line general manager—chemical and monitoring solutions, water and process technologies for GE Power & Water. “This next generation of GenGard chemistry is a robust treatment program that helps customers meet their specific requirements and allows them to do more with existing resources.”

GenGard 8000 will continue to have the characteristics of the original GenGard chemistry family. GenGard is halogen stable, allowing it to be used in conjunction with the most cost-effective biocide programs. In addition, the patented GenGard technology includes a stress tolerant polymer (STP). STP is a very forgiving chemistry that offers excellent control of mineral scale and corrosion.
The GenGard product family is designed to work in conjunction with GE’s most advanced automation, process control and knowledge management platform, TrueSense. The synergy between these two technologies enables optimal performance of cooling water systems with forgiving chemistry that performs even in the toughest conditions.

GenGard 8000 is commercially available immediately in North America with other markets around the world to follow shortly.
