Oil and Gas Water Treatment

Electrolytic Technologies can help you with all your oil and gas water treatment applications. Klorigen™ systems safely generate the chlorine gas and/or high strength (up to 15%) sodium hypochlorite that is typically used to control biological fouling experienced in the water cooling processes in the oil and gas industry. In addition to water cooling applications, Klorigen™ technology is well suited to other oil field applications including hydrogen sulfide removal, enhanced oil recovery, and frac water treatment. On-site generation allows oil and gas applications to continue using their preferred disinfectant while addressing all the issues related to the transportation, storage and handling of pressurized chlorine gas or sodium hypochlorite. Additionally, Klorigen produces high-strength sodium hypochlorite product at concentrations 15-20x higher than other on-site alternatives, providing significant savings in storage, transportation, and operational costs.


In the Klorigen™ process, chlorine and/or sodium hypochlorite is produced from salt, water and electricity and delivered at the point of usage and on-demand, providing fresh product as and when required.  Klorigen™-produced chlorine is safely generated under vacuum, eliminating the threat of a toxic gas release. Klorigen™ systems are delivered fully assembled, factory tested and ready for installation and have proven to be highly reliable and to require minimal maintenance.


Klorigen™ provides greater autonomy for oil and gas applications by reducing the dependence on third party suppliers and providing production scaled to demand. In most instances, Klorigen™ generated s bleach is considerably less expensive than purchased commercial bulk bleach.

Benefits of Klorigen™

  • Systems chlorine gas at less than atmospheric pressure, virtually eliminating the possibility of a dangerous toxic gas release.
  • The generated chlorine gas can be combined with co-product sodium hydroxide within the process to produce high-strength sodium hypochlorite at an operating cost that is in most cases is comparable to or less than any alternative chlor-alkali product available to the end user.
  • Klorigen™ systems have a projected lifespan exceeding 20 years with minor refurbishments scheduled at five to eight-year intervals.
  • The generated chemical products (elemental chlorine gas, sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite) are equal if not superior in quality and efficacy to conventional bulk-supplied alternatives and comply with National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) standards (USA).
  • Modular designs allow for the capacity of a system to be increased within its existing footprint by a factor of two or even three in less than one week with minimal interruption to operations.
  • Every system and subsystem is designed to fit within conventional ocean-freight shipping (TEU) containers, allowing for low cost road and sea freight to the customer’s site.
  • By design, the system operates at less than one atmosphere of pressure with electrodes separated by a semi-perfluorinated membrane, eliminating any risk for hydrogen explosion in either the electrolyzers or downstream in the product storage tanks.
