Energy Water Solutions- Movable Produced Water Recycling Unit in Eagle Ford Shale

Feb. 1, 2014

HOUSTON, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Recently, Energy Water Solutions and EP Energy (NYSE: EPE) have contracted to deploy movable water recycling facilities in the Eagle Ford Shale close to Cotulla, Texas in LaSalle County.  As part of this effort, a produced water unit mobilized in April 2013 has been effectively cleaning produced water to meet the standards for hydraulic stimulation operations.


John Jensen, Executive Vice President of Operation Services for EP Energy said, “For unconventional shale players like EP Energy, reducing the amount of water from aquifers that we use is important as we continue to develop new and existing plays. We’re pleased to be working with Energy Water Solutions to implement leading-edge recycling solutions in the Eagle Ford Shale.”

David Skinner, EWS Chairman, said, “We are pleased to have EP Energy as a recycling partner for our Eagle Ford Operations. Our close collaboration over the last two years has enabled a movable, effective and economic solution to the produced water disposal problem.”

Energy Water Solutions’ efforts to recycle produced water from oil and gas wells in the Eagle Ford are lowering water usage from the Carrizo Wilcox aquifer in South Texas, benefiting land owners and communities who share this aquifer.  In addition, by reusing cleaned water for fracture stimulation operations in the area rather than hauling it to an injection well, truck traffic and disposal costs are reduced.

Microplastics that were fragmented from larger plastics are called secondary microplastics; they are known as primary microplastics if they originate from small size produced industrial beads, care products or textile fibers.
