The catalog of Industrial Process Profiles for Environmental Use was developed as an aid in defining the environmental impacts of industrial activity in the United States. Entries for each industry are in consistent format and form separate chapters of the study. The oil and gas production industry is involved in locating and retrieving oil and gas from underground formations and preparing the well streams for use by consumers. The industry is discussed in five segments: (1) Exploration and Site Preparation, (2) Drilling, (3) Crude Processing, (4) Natural Gas Processing, and (5) Secondary and Tertiary Recovery. Two process flow sheets and twenty process descriptions have been prepared to characterize the industry. Within each process description available data have been presented on input materials, operating parameters, utility requirements and waste streams. Data related to the subject matter, including company and product data, are included as appendices.
