  • The effect of the electrolyte composition of produced water in oil & gas production facilities was investigated by developing a laboratory scale oil/water separation setup and a related procedure, coupled with an analytical method based on the OSPAR reference method for oil-in-water measurement. The experimental plan was aimed at investigating the effect of the ionic strength, for a given electrolyte, and of different electrolytes, for a given ionic strength, on the separation of oil droplets… CONTINUE READING
