Filtration and Gas Management in Oil and Gas

The production and processing demands of the oil and gas industry require filtration and separation solutions that are engineered to maximize outcomes. Successful operations need filtration and separation that helps increase efficiency, reduce downtime, protect valuable equipment and meet strict environmental regulations.

From upstream drilling and mid-stream distribution to downstream refining, 3M filtration and separation supports applications throughout the oil and gas industry.

Applications for Oil and Gas

We’re here to help. For more than 100 years, 3M has partnered with our customers to develop innovative filtration and purification products to help in their processes.

Produced Water Recycling

Produced water is a byproduct of drilling operations that needs to be addressed with filtration whether it’s going to be used as part of fracking, other drilling operations or disposed of. A key concern is making sure the water is treated so it doesn’t foul the oil formation, reducing well production. With the right filtration, rejected water can be used as frack water, flood water, construction water and other uses, and thereby reducing well production.

3M’s filtration products provide the particle reduction needed for efficient oil and gas applications.
