Abstract

Background:
Produced water is waste water from crude oil production process. A large volume of water is produced during operation as a by-product. This volume is expected to increase from maturing conventional oil and gas fields. Due to its hazardous contents, produced water needs to be treated before disposing to the environment or being utilized.
Materials and Methods:
The membrane was prepared by casting a stable and homogeny dope solution containing 19% weight polyether sulfone and 81% weight n-methyl-2-pyrrolidone using dry/wet phase inversion technique. The performance of the membrane was investigated as effects of set of variables: UV irradiation (10, 25 and 300 sec), annealing temperature (150 and 180° C) and annealing time (10, 25 and 60 sec).
