Water Recycling and Reuse

Occidental strives to recycle and reuse as much water as possible. Occidental recycles produced water in a closed loop by reinjection into oil and gas reservoirs, as part of its improved oil recovery (IOR) operations. Occidental operations also recycle and reuse wastewater from various sources during drilling, completions, or well stimulation operations - including hydraulic fracturing.
