The significance of water injection needs no emphasis on an oilfield operator. It is the simplest technique for Improved Oil Recovery (IOR). When finding new oil fields is becoming difficult and developing them is cost-intensive, any incremental oil gain through water injection is always desirable. Water injection planning involves assessment of the suitability of reservoir for water injection, selection of the source of water and its compatibility with reservoir rock and connate water, the decision on water injection pattern, well location, water treatment process design, and pipelines for connecting to injection wells. Once the water injection process begins, uninterrupted availability of injection water, with the right quality, is the key to the success of water injection. If the quality and quantity of injected water are not as per design, IOR projections can be erratic.

The poor injection water quality is one of the major reasons for the poor efficiency of water injection operation due to injectivity loss and corrosion failure of pipelines and equipment. It needs a comprehensive understanding of the significance of each step in injection water treatment to achieve the desired results Maintaining or improving the performance of existing water injection systems can help sustain as well as improve current production levels. It is a well-known fact that early understanding of the problems and solutions of the water injection process can yield rich dividends in terms of smooth functioning and oil recovery.

The aim of the training is to technically strengthen the team engaged in injection water-treatment. Once the team is well aware of “why” they are doing, “what” will happen if they do it wrong, “what” is the negative impact of any slippage and “what” corrective actions should they take; the team will perform better and performance of the water injection plant will also excel. Not only that, once the basic understanding of the persons involved in plant operations improves, they may even start thinking of system improvements to enhance efficiency.

In view of this, a Two Day Training on “Efficient Management of Injection Water Treatment” will be organized for the persons involved in different ways in the operations of Water Injection Plants.
