Produced water pipeline systems have grown significantly in recent years due to the cost advantage over variable transportation and to enable large-scale reuse or disposal. These larger systems are built for multiple operators and continue to add new segments of over time. The downside of these multi-operator systems are the constantly changing flow rates, direction and pressures that allow produced water to comingle and create scale, sludge and biofilm.

The sheer volume of these interconnected systems creates an environment where certain segments of th
