Texas agency approves mobile system to recycle produced, flowback water

Posted on 26 March 2012

Texas-based Water Rescue Services has received approval from the Railroad Commission of Texas to operate a mobile recycling system to recycle produced and flowback water created through the hydraulic fracturing process.

“Only a handful of companies meet the stringent requirements to recycle flowback and produced water, which allows for substantial gains in efficiency while performing on location,” said Wes Williams, president of Water Rescue Services. “We believe our customers with active Texas drilling operations will enjoy a significant market advantage when utilizing Water Rescue’s mobile treatment technology to recycle water on site, thus lowering costs and saving time through this recycling process.”

Water Rescue Services recently signed a strategic alliance with Select Energy Services that gives Select access to a mobile water treatment and recycling technology through Water Rescue’s electro-coagulation units.
