A decision support system for produced water management (DISSPROWM) in offshore operations is presented. The system determines the risk and hazards to human and marine species from non-carcinogenic and carcinogenic pollutants present in produced water including radionuclides. The DISSPROWM also evaluates best available treatment technology for treating the produced water whose properties are in the database. The system consists of a Windows based Graphical User Interface (GUI) developed with Microsoft Visual Basic that integrates a SQL Server database, risk assessment model and dilution model for produced water contaminants. The database contains produced water pollutants and existing treatment technologies.
