Technical Report-Rare Earth Element Concentrations in Wyoming's Produced Waters

Abstract

This study is a joint effort by the University of Wyoming (UW), the UW Engineering Department (UW-ENG), and Idaho National Laboratories (INL) and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to describe rare earth element concentrations in oil and gas produced waters. In this work we present the Rare Earth Element (REE) and trace metal character of produced water in several oil and gas fields and three coal fired power stations.
