ConsciousnessMindful of the bigger picture.
Water management decisions within shale oil and gas production fall into three primary categories: water acquisition, water utilization within hydraulic fracturing operations, and the disposal of wastewater from drilling and production.
ECT has acquired new flow through technologies designed to treat for and recycle, contaminated oil flowback water generated by the petroleum industry. Flowback water is mainly utilized in well drilling to improve harvest extraction efficiencies, it consists mainly of freshwater containing a chemical brine mixture of polymers used as viscosity agents. Approximately 10% of a given site’s daily production rate can be lost due to oil emulsification within the flow back water. ECT technology further allows this lost oil to be recovered while simultaneously treating for recycling other contaminants without the addition of chemicals flocculates.
