Environmental Impact of Produced Water and Driiling Waste Discharges from the Niger Delta.. International organization of Scientific Research 23 | P a g e Fig 1. Map of Nigeria Showing the Oil Producing States in Niger Delta Region (excluding off shore Production beyond the lower limit of the Continental Shelf) (Aniefiok et al., ).Cited by: 1. Implements governmental policy of water protection and pollution prevention; Establishes and adopts maximum allowable concentration for waste water discharges and assess plans of environmental impact mitigation activities in the field of water resources (MAD and EIA reports) Conducts state inventory of water use and wastewater. In Europe, the protection of the environment from the adverse effects of urban waste water discharges is addressed in Directive 91/, (later amended by Directive 98/15/EC) which enforces appropriate collection, secondary treatment for all emissions above inhabitant equivalents, and additional treatment for nutrient removal for emissions to areas sensitive to hypereutrophication. Yes. Offshore drilling and production discharges and their environmental effects have been studied for over 30 years. In , BOEM (then the Bureau of Land Management) began its Environmental Studies Program to investigate potential effects of oil and gas production activities on the marine environment.

Discharges of pollution into water bodies, including thermal pollution (water that is hotter than the original temperature of the water body). Generation of solid waste, which may include hazardous waste. Land use for fuel production, power generation, and transmission and distribution lines. The environmental impact of paper production is important to note since it has many negative effects. Here are some of them: 40% of the world’s commercially cut timber is used for the production of paper. Pulpwood plantations and mills endanger natural habitats. . The stress on our water environment as a result of increased industrialization, which aids urbanization, is becoming very high thus reducing the availability of clean water. Polluted water is of great concern to the aquatic organism, plants, humans, and climate and indeed alters the ecosystem. The preservation of our water environment, which is embedded in sustainable development, must be well. By the end of , we had reduced the amount of water our factories use by 47% † per tonne of production versus our baseline, despite growth in our production volume. We achieved – and surpassed – our target of reducing the volume of water we abstract by 40% per tonne of production in , two years ahead of schedule.

This density gradient inhibits the mixing and dilution of the very salty water [11] Produced water effects on aquatic lives are related to the exposure of organisms to concentrations of more than.

(eds) Produced Water 2. Environmental Science Research, vol A number of studies have been carried out on heavy metal concentrations in animal feeds and manure. Hill et al. carried out an experiment on the impact of animal waste application on runoff water quality in field experimental plots and concluded that a major concern of using animal waste as a source of fertilizer is the potential of degrading any nearby natural water sources Zhang et al.
