Circulation of Water in the Oil Production: Water Treatment Plant Schönkirchen
OMV built the new water treatment plant at Schönkirchen. In a three-stage water treatment process the oil in water content is reduced from 300 to 2 ppm.
After this purification process the sea water can be re-injected into the reservoir. Furthermore, the process water and the sludge, which are effluents of the produced water treatment units, are purified separately.
