ملخص

Large quantities of water are produced during oil extraction in Oman. Disposal of this water poses serious challenge to the managers of the oil industry in Oman. The overall objective of this study was to assess the effect of treated oil production water on soil properties due to land disposal. A pilot scale study was conducted to treat the produced water continuously using a combined air floatation-adsorption process. A comparison study between the treated water and fresh water has been performed to test their effect on soil physical and chemical properties. Apart from increasing soil salinity, it has been found from the study that the use of treated water caused adverse effects on the physical properties of the soil such as pore size distribution, infiltration rate and saturated hydraulic conductivity. No significant difference was observed in heavy metals accumulation when fresh and treated water were used.
