Reclaiming water in hydraulic fracturing

STW Resources Holding Corp has signed an agreement with Aquatech International to purchase and/or lease a fleet of mobile units for the treatment and reclamation of hydraulic fracture flow-back and produced waters from oil and gas production. The deal is part of STW’s roadmap to provide water reclamation to producers in the Marcellus Shale region of Pennsylvania. The mobile water reclamation units utilize water evaporation technology to save oil and gas production companies up to 50% of the cost of handling contaminated water and returning processed water to the oil & gas operator for reuse. Aquatech’s mobile technology line includes MoTreat™, a suspended solids separation, filtration and disinfection unit, and MoVap™ an evaporator/distiller which handles wastewater by processing it on-site, eliminating the need to truck the wastewater to disposal sites.
