I'm new to Oil Sands and would like to know the difference between TPW (Tailings Pond Water), OSPW (Oil Sands Process Affected Water) and OFPW (Oil Field Produced Water). Is TPW considered part of OSPW or OFPW? How about the boilder blow down? I gather that the wastewater from SAGD process is considered as OFPW? Thanks!
