The effectiveness of produced water treatment was briefly studied in offshore oil and gas extraction operations in Cook Inlet, Alaska, and the Gulf of Mexico. Three offshore oil extraction facilities were examined in the Cook Inlet production field, and seven platforms were studied in the Gulf of Mexico. Overall treatment effectiveness, as well as effectiveness of individual process units, was determined in the Cook Inlet study. Quality of the final effluent was characterized in the Gulf of Mexico study.
