Engineers at the University of Colorado Boulder have invented a simple wastewater process that can simultaneously remove both salts and organic contaminants from oil & gas wastewater, all while producing additional energy.
Energy Recovery Inc. says its new pump protection system is capable of entirely protecting hydraulic fracturing (fracking) pumps from frac fluid.
Wastewater treatment spending for hydraulic fracturing is expected to grow almost three-fold, from $138 million in 2014 to $357 million in 2020.
Scientists have developed new geochemical tracers that can identify hydraulic fracturing flowback fluids that have been spilled or released into the environment.
A November vote against tougher regulations on hydraulic fracturing in Colorado will not end anti-fracking efforts in the state or in other regions, former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter said Sunday on Platts Energy Week.
OriginOil Inc.’s CLEANFRAC water treatment technology has demonstrated that it can remove almost all organics, suspended solids, and bacteria from produced water, showing potential for enabling oil operators to extract more petroleum from process water and reduce fresh water use.
Natural gas production from one of the United State’s fastest growing plays, the Marcellus Shale, will climb even higher in the face of widespread environmental and safety concerns, predicts industry analysts GlobalData in their new report.
