We just got back from the recent Shale Water Expo in Houston.
This was the first conference and exhibition in the United States to focus on the natural gas drilling
industry’s biggest issue: water.
Water management is on everybody’s mind these days. Water, the high-cost, high-volume component in hydraulic
fracturing, is more than just an operating expense. It has become an item of public concern that’s in the
news every day. Not surprisingly, one conference panel featured a...
When the sky cries, that’s a natural phenomenon. But when
Nature’s pure water mixes with various types of oil and hydraulic fluids or other contaminants, the result
is a man-made problem.
Commonly called stormwater runoff, rainwater will flow wherever it wants once it hits Earth. And this
characteristic is what makes water troublesome wherever it encounters oil – in heavy
equipment yards, scrap yards, truck and train terminals, oil and gas operations, shipping docks and the
like. Water from various types...
Recently, an increasing number of companies in the oil and gas
industry’s hydraulic fracturing wastewater disposal business have found employing efficient, low-maintenance
oil skimming technology can bring sustained improvements to their bottom lines. We’re talking added monthly
profits of $3,000 to $18,000. Sound appealing?
Wastewater disposal companies in Texas, West Virginia and Ohio, who have purchased oil skimmers to recover
and sell oil that is present in the hydraulic fracturing wastewater being delivered to their facilities,
have capitalized on this...
In steel mills of all
types, removing oil from water is a key consideration. The choice you make can help your plant run better
and, in some cases, the reclaimed oil can provide a new source of revenue.
Tramp oil, lubricants, hydraulic fluid – all these can spell trouble in terms of time and cost. Given the
choice, wouldn’t you prefer to avoid problems before they have a chance to start? Selecting the appropriate
oil removal method can help you do...
