Treatment of oily water containing different salts using surfactants
Keywords:produced water, surfactants, auto clave, and flocculation
The oil drilling operations large quantities of contaminted water known as "produced water" .
The present study aims to treatment of produced water of the North Rumaila and Zubair oil fields,
using stainless steel autoclave. A series of experiments were carried out at different conditions,
temperature, pressure, acidity, revolution per minute (RPM) and salinity with and without flocculation
.The result showed that 93% of oil was removed. An improvement was conducted when using
