Abstract: The management of oil produced water (PW) constitutes a major challenge to oil companies. The options usually adopted for PW are disposal, injection and reuse. In all cases, a PW treatment is required in order to avoid damages to the environment and to production facilities or to allow its reuse without causing damage to processes in which the PW is used. The membrane separation processes (MSP) has been shown to be capable of treating effluent with high content of emulsified oil and with medium and small sizes particle, competing well with more complex treatment technologies such as flotation. The aim of this paper was to present a review of the PW treatment by MSP, discussing the main aspects of the PW and the conceptual aspects of the MSP, with emphasis on their application for removal of oil from the PW.
