Produced Water Discharge

In certain locations, produced water has low salinity and can be reused beneficially or discharged to surface water bodies. Discharge to surface water bodies requires a permit or authorization that sets water quality parameters consistent with the receiving water body and may specify treatment requirements. Additionally, discharges from Occidental's facilities are evaluated for water quality under other applicable regulations and company policies.
