A decision-support system for produced water management
(DISSPROWM) in offshore operations is being developed. The system
determines the risk and hazards to human and marine species from
non-carcinogenic and carcinogenic pollutants, including radionuclides present
in produced water. The DISSPROWM also evaluates the best available
treatment technology for treating the produced water whose properties are
in the database. The system consists of a Windows-based Graphical User
Interface (GUI) developed with Microsoft Visual Basic, which integrates a
SQL Server database, a risk assessment model and a dilution model for
produced water contaminants. The database contains most produced water
pollutants and their important properties that are required in dispersion and risk
assessment modelling. The database also contains current produced water
regulations and information on some of the selected existing treatment
technologies with typical cost data required in the decision-support system.
