Water Inpoundments and Pit Solutions
Flexibility Meets Sustainability

In a proactive approach to address citizens concerns to conserve our planets most valuable natural resource; many oil and gas producers are actively seeking alternatives to relying on fresh water for the use in hydraulic fracturing.  Some of these alternatives may include the reuse of flow back and/or produced water.  When these make up waters are stored in impoundments they lay stagnant and become the perfect breeding ground for the most common bacteria known in the oil field.  Sufate Reducing Bacteria (SRB) thrive and multiply in lined pits in all parts of the country in a wide spectrum of temperatures.  Some of the secondary effects on a pit by these bacteria include biomass slugs, iron sulfide buildup, and Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S).

As the demand for water rises, producers are increasingly becoming more creative in sourcing water for use across their operations. Acid mine drainage, municipal wastewater, and produced water are all becoming viable sources for use and reuse in the hydraulic fracturing process. Our treatment process includes either Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) or Peracetic Acid (PAA) and provides both mobility and flexibility to meet the most challenging of water source demands. We combine over 60 years of water treatment expertise from across the globe to create tailored treatment solutions for each producer’s unique needs.
