The characterization study showed that the produced water varied in a wide range based on seasonal and locational variations. It is expected that the biological treatment of wastewater from gas and gas–oil field wells will be more efficient than that from oil field wells. The data can be a useful tool in the assessment of reuse option for produced water as injection water or other purposes.
