McIlvaine Company says that as the world market for clarifiers, centrigues, and cyclones to purify liquid expands, the fastest growing segment will be treatment of shale oil and gas wastewater. Shale Wastewater Treatment Is Fastest Growing Application in Sedimentation and Centrifugation Market By: ImpellerNet The drilling activity extracting gas and oil from shale has put the U.S. on a trajectory to become the largest oil producer. This activity results in the flowback of injected fracturing fluid during the initial drilling and then the continuing extraction of produced water during the entire campaign. There is considerable use of plate settlers, cyclones and even centrifuges to purify this water for reuse. The option to dispose of this water in deep wells is becoming less popular due to cost and regulatory restrictions. In addition, in certain regions of the U.S., water scarcity dictates the reuse option. There are two approaches. One is mobile treatment. This works well for the
Karen Boman of RIGZONE reports on a partnership of technology between Dow and Omni Water Solutions. The technology is allowing for 725,000 barrels of water per day to be treated at Eagle Ford, and officials with the two companies expected that number to pass the one million mark by the end of 2014. Significant Water Recycling Achieved in Eagle Ford By: Karen Boman Officials with Dow Water Process Solutions and Omni Water Solutions Inc., an Austin-based water treatment technology company, expect the number of barrels of water treated at an Eagle Ford project to pass the one million barrel mark by the end of 2014. The partnership of technology between the two companies has allowed for the treatment of over 725,000 barrels per day (bpd) of water at an oil and gas project in Karnes County, Texas since the project began in June 2013. The project operator was having issues with boron, which occurs naturally in produced water in the play, and was interfering with the performance of
