Synergism of Anthraquinone with an Oilfield Biocide to Inhibit Sulfide Generation from Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria
"Synergism of Anthraquinone with an Oilfield Biocide to Inhibit Sulfide Generation from Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria" is a conference paper released in 2004 by Edward D. Burger, EB Technologies Inc. and published in CORROSION 2004, March 28 - April 1, 2004 , New Orleans, La.
The abstract says "It has been shown that anthraquinone inhibits the ability for sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) to respire using sulfate as an electron acceptor. This property has been used to develop specific treatments for oilfield water systems to reduce the generation of H2S and the formation of iron sulfides. In this paper, results from laboratory and field studies showing the synergistic effect of treating oilfield produced waters with both anthraquinone and acrolein are discussed. Results from these studies indicate that the use of anthraquinone can extend the duration of effectiveness of this biocide and improve the quality of the water for injection."
What happens to the wastewater associated with hydraulic fracturing operations? Q & A from Penn State
Q: What happens to the wastewater associated with hydraulic fracturing operations?
Q & A from Penn State University - Marcellus Center
A: Hydraulic fracturing is necessary for development of the Marcellus shale natural gas as this process opens up fractures in the shale which allow the natural gas to flow to the well. This operation involves injecting several million gallons of water, sand, and a small addition of chemical additives into the formation at high pressure. After the injection is completed, approximately 10-20 percent of the fluids (known as flowback) return to the surface via the well.
