Oilfield Water Management

Increase ROI with superior water conformance and reuse

Baker Hughes solves water management challenges by relying on a century of oilfield experience, research, expertise in implementing new technology, and industry-leading reservoir knowledge. Through a systemic approach, you can make the reuse, shutoff, and control of water possible and economical. This leads to better use of resources, increased production, and extended economic life of assets for years to come.

Oilfield water management represents a technical, economic, logistics, and regulatory challenge. Baker Hughes H2prO™ surface water management services use the industry’s oldest problem—unwanted water production and flowback—to solve its newest challenge: getting enough water for oilfield operations. This technology allows you to get the water you need in the right place, at the right time, and with the right quality to perform hydraulic fracturing, waterflooding, and other crucial downhole operations. This is all completed in compliance with appropriate water policies and regulations.

Integrated water shutoff and conformance solutions from Baker Hughes help you produce more hydrocarbons by guiding water flow, and by shutting off or reducing water production. ResPRO™ subsurface production conformance and assurance services reduce excess water production and the associated operating costs, saving money and improving hydrocarbon potential. This water management technology, coupled with a comprehensive range of polymer and mechanical services, contributes to an integrated, cost-effective solution to fit your needs.

Water-related problems like scale, organic deposition, bacteria, and corrosion can also have an impact on production. To assure long-term flow, Baker Hughes developed its StimPlus™ flow assurance services. This revolutionary combination of hydraulic fracturing and production chemistry offers years of ongoing active treatment to maximize post-fracture production and minimize post-fracture intervention costs.
