The article deals with the issue of extracting produced water at oil fields. The authors estimate costs that the oil companies spend on recycling of these waters. The article considers possible environmental threats associated with the produced water from the oil fields of Ukraine and the adjacent territories. The authors propose the use of produced water as a hydro-mineral raw material to minimize the negative environmental impact. The article describes produced water from oil fields of the Eastern oil and gas region of Ukraine as a promising raw material. The authors show the economic advantage of using produced water for the oil industry. An example of economic efficiency of the use of water produced at Chutivske oil field is shown. The authors determine the positive economic impact as the main method of controlling the pollution of the environment associated with the produced water.
