To help operators extract more petroleum from process water and reduce the need to use fresh water in the fracturing operations, OriginOil has developed a chemical-free water treatment and separation technology. The CLEAN-FRAC mobile laboratory recently made a stop in Houston during a tour that started in Los Angeles. Riggs Eckelberry, president & CEO of OriginOil, speaks with Drilling Contractor associate editor Joanne Liou in a DC-exclusive video about the technology, which completed its first field test at an oil well near Bakersfield, Calif.
