produced water - unlocking a valuable resource
significantly reduce costs, reduce complexity of operations, introduce flexibility of operations, convert waste to valued byproducts and other improvements.
Cost is one important driver, but there are a number of related value drivers we will consider, including:
- Minimal waste streams, minimal environmental footprint
- Beneficial reuse applications in oil and gas or other industries
- Variable operating envelope (temperature, flow, Total Dissolved Solids levels, etc.)
in case the technology is selected for a field trial, will chevron own the intellectual property (IP) that may result from field/operational development of the technology?
