Water evaporation in the Marcellus region (OH/WVA/PA)
The recent drop in oil prices and the reductions in Capital Budgets are presenting Producers with a new challenge.
All the existing wells completed over the past several years are continuing to make more water than is required to meet the current drilling plans. This is putting a large amount of stress on water disposal.
- Stress on water disposal industry
- We evaporate water cheaper, with patented technology
- Moveable technology
We partnered with an E&P Company to invent a solution to address this problem. The result is a patented, Evaporation in Place (EiP), technology that is capable of evaporating water into the atmosphere without boiling it. The new technology is moveable, has the footprint of a frac tank and is capable of evaporating produced water cheaper than hauling it to a disposal site.
The ideal place for the EiP is in fields with large distances between well groupings or where the terrain makes it very difficult to bring them into a larger gathering system. Other applications include drilling pits, large settling ponds or areas where trucking and disposal are expensive.
