Frac Water Recycling System

Water is the most precious resource in the world, playing an integral role in all facets of human development. It plays no less of a role in the search for energy within the global oil and gas industry.

The search for oil & gas has taken on a heightened level of activity with the successful deployment of horizontal drilling combined with multistage horizontal well completions in unconventional resource plays. This technology has been responsible for a rapid increase in oil and gas production in the United States over the past several years. This remarkable new technology has a downside as the key ingredient in many of these horizontal well completions (fracturing) is large volumes of freshwater, in some cases 3-5 million gallons of water per well completion. As there is an increasingly higher price to pay for fresh water both in economic and public perception, many oil & gas producers are now beginning to recycle fresh water based fluids used in the completion of oil & gas wells. Other factors involved in the move to recycling are the attractive economics of recycling compared with tanker transportation costs, frac tank rental, water disposal costs, and minimization of road traffic to reduce environmental impacts and road damage fines in some jurisdictions.

Global Production Solutions (GPS) is at the forefront of this new movement with the introduction of the “Aquasphere” surface pumping system.
