OIL & GAS/PERMIAN BASIN
The Permian Basin in Texas and New Mexico contains one of the largest oil reserves in the world. In the state of Texas alone, there are 500,000 abandoned or shut-in wells. Starting in 2021, to operate in the Permian Basin, well water needs to be EPA irrigation level compliant. For every barrel of oil pumped out of the ground an oil well can produce between 3 to 7 barrels of water. EPA regulations will not allow oil companies to inject this contaminated, radioactive and high salinized water back into the ground. Other means of disposal can be very expensive and reduces profitability to an oil company. CETI’s water filtration, oil/water separation and desalination technology can completely eliminate this problem.
