Water is an essential component in the oil and gas industry, contributing to its operational efficiency and environmental protection. The industry withdraws and manages water for numerous activities, from hydraulic fracturing to drilling to refining and enhancing oil recovery. Large volumes of wastewater contaminated with chemicals, oils, and other pollutants is produced during these processes. This water must be rigorously treated to remove the contaminants before reuse or release into the environment. At Walchem, we provide metering pumps known for their precision and efficiency, making them an ideal choice for water treatment processes in the oil and gas industries.

Benefits of Choosing Walchem’s Metering Pumps for Water Treatment in the Oil and Gas Industry

The choice of metering pumps is an essential consideration in the oil and gas industry, where large volumes of wastewater are treated regularly to meet the water requirements and regulations. Our metering pumps are designed to meet the intensive chemical metering requirements of wastewater processing facilities operating at oil and gas processing facilities. Here are some benefits of choosing them for your chemical dosing applications.

  • High Precision and Accuracy: Walchem’s metering pumps assure precise dosing of chemicals. This accurate dosing assures effective treatment, leading to better compliance with environmental regulations.
  • Ease of Integration and Control: Walchem’s metering pumps are compatible with various control mechanisms and can be easily integrated with your existing water treatment systems. This ease of integration facilitates quick automation and better process control, enabling efficient operations.
  • Durability in Challenging Environments: Most oil and gas processing facilities treat water at their premises. Wastewater is directly supplied to the processing tanks through pumps. Our metering pumps are also connected to these systems for precise chemical dosing. These pumps are designed to withstand corrosion and ambient conditions, thereby reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements.
  • Chemical Resistance: Our dosing pumps are made of materials that can withstand various chemicals used in wastewater treatment without degradation. This chemical resistance helps maintain the performance of the pumps over time.
  • Energy Efficiency: The oil and gas industry is actively working to reduce its environmental footprint. Our dosing pumps are designed to consume less power during operation, which reduces energy costs and the environmental footprint.
  • Low Maintenance: Our dosing pumps’ durable construction, combined with energy efficiency and reliability, makes them low maintenance. With less time spent on downtime and repairs, they contribute to operational efficiency and low overall operational costs.
  • Scalability and Flexibility: We provide a wide range of metering pump models to suit different pressures, flow rates, and dosing requirements. This allows our customers in the oil and gas industry to choose the pump for their needs, whether for small-scale treatments or large, industrial operations.
  • Improved Water Quality and Compliance: Walchem’s metering pumps’ precision and reliability have immensely helped our clients in the oil and gas industry achieve their water treatment objectives and comply with stringent environmental regulations. We also take pride in the fact that our pumps have contributed to community health and helped protect ecosystems.

Over the years, many exploration and production (E&P) companies, refineries and processing plants, environmental and water treatment service providers, engineering and construction firms, and government and regulatory bodies have benefitted from our pumps.
