Extraction of metals from formation waters.
For the extraction of oil from the well to maintain reservoir pressure uses ground water, which also occurs in oil reservoir with oil. It usually contains links to various valuable metals and nonmetals and is a highly saline brine, which contains from 70 to 300 kg/m3 of dissolved salts.
It contained valuable elements can be extracted using ion-exchange resins, followed by obtaining concentrate and cleaning. Technology of extracting metals from formation waters of different non-waste, the toxicity of the used chemical reagents and without the need for the construction of new wells or expensive mining and the purchase of additional expensive equipment.
