Comparing methods and sediment contaminant indicators for determining produced water fate in a Louisiana estuary.

Abstract

Produced water is a high salinity by-product resulting from oil and gas production. Disposal methods include surface water discharge. The current field method used to determine its fate in estuarine systems involves extending a compass oriented transect (COT) from the point source discharge--a method designed for a uniformly dispersing effluent discharged… (More)
