water treatment for the oil and gas industry

Pörner Water

Water is - besides air - the most important resource on our globe. Water is a relevant and critical utility and an integral part in the process industry. This applies for upstream in offshore and onshore installations as well as for downstream.

With the new competence center „Pörner Water“ - the Pörner Group extends its support for the process industries to sustainably minimize the energy and water consumption as well as the emissions of their process plants.

Whether it is the development of a complex water treatment scheme for a refinery or an injection water treatment package for an oil well, the engineers of Pörner Water bring in their experience and expertise to create a customized solution.

Pörner Water Technologies

Backed by comprehensive project references for installations worldwide and a pro-active technology development, Pörner Water provides the optimum combination of modern water processes, systems and special components - to meet the customers’ needs.

This applies for the following technologies:

Process Water Treatment

  • Flocculation, coagulation, sedimentation, flotation
  • Media filtration (sand-, activated carbon- and mixed bed filters)
  • Removal of iron and manganese
  • Removal of hydrocarbons, BTXE, phenols
  • Membrane processes (ultra-filtration, micro-filtration, nano-filtration, reverse osmosis)
  • Ion exchangers with internal/external regeneration
  • CEDI (Continuous Electro Deionization)
  • Integrated solutions of all listed technologies

industrial Wastewater Treatment

  • Media filtration (sand-, activated carbon- and mixed bed filters)
  • Primary oil removal (API, CPI)
  • Oil separation, flocculation, coagulation, sedimentation, flotation
  • Biological Wastewater Treatment
  • Wastewater Treatment
  • Membrane processes (MBR, ultra-filtration, micro-filtration)
  • Integrated solutions of all listed technologies

Pörner Water

The Pörner mission is to execute projects completely and responsibly: From the basic concept - tailored to customer requirements - to complete engineering, procurement and site supervision up to commissioning, training and start-up - as well as advanced service options available for predictive maintenance.

Pörner Water offers engineering services for green field installations, upgrades, extensions or modernizations with the knowledge of the latest innovations in physiochemical, and biological technologies in the following areas:

  • Concept development & consulting
  • Process water treatment
  • Produced water treatment
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Predictive maintenance 

The Pörner Life-Cycle-Service concept

Based on experience obtained from the design, engineering and commissioning of process units, the Pörner Water specialists are prepared to provide evaluation, concepts and services for long-term value retention and full functionality of the plants with low maintenance and utility costs.


In particular, Pörner Water provides predictive maintenance services for the completed plants in operation.

Main service elements

  • Ensure full availability of the water treatment unit at suitable quality
  • Optimize utilization of process chemicals
  • Installation of facilities for predictive maintenance
  • Training of operators to identify potential risks and avoid process failures

Benefits for the customer

The aim of the Pörner Life-Cycle-Service is the long-term preservation of the plant and its maximum availability.

Critical risk elements are by far reduced – such as unplanned downtimes, damage to key plant equipment, and environmental impacts: to ensure an operation with a significantly smaller risk profile.

  • Optimized operation of the water treatment unit and auxiliary equipment
  • Process optimization (increased plant availability at minimized utility consumption)
  • Know-how transfer to the plant operators
