Title: Produced water treatment
Text: "Produced Water Management, Pre-Disposal treatment. Produced water can be treated prior to being discharged or disposed. Treatment such as reverse osmosis (RO) can be targeted at a single ion such as sodium, rendering the processed water more compatible for a beneficial use. Skid-mounted RO units can be installed near "pod" manifolds or at single high-delivery wells. RO units can be powered by natural gas or electricity including wind turbines. Economics will vary on a site by site basis."
