Aquatech awarded permit to operate central water treatment facility in Tioga County, Pennsylvania for shale gas producers

Friday, Feb 15, 2013

CANONSBURG, Pa., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aquatech, a world leader in wastewater treatment recycle and reuse, has been granted a permit to operate a central treatment facility in Tioga County, PA. The facility, designed using Aquatech's MoSuite™ set of technologies, will deliver a menu of wastewater treatment and recycle services to the regional shale gas producers and is accepting customer orders.

MoSuite is an effective combination of MoTreat® and MoVap® process units, a pretreatment and distillation evaporator specifically designed to treat drill fluids, frac flowback, production brine and other wastewaters from exploration and production of conventional and unconventional oil and gas. The suite of processing units delivers a tiered menu of services including filtration, disinfection, solids handling, pretreatment and evaporation concentration.

Aquatech's offering at the Tioga facility will provide high quality wastewater treatment that delivers consistent treated water quality and flexible water management solutions for the industry.

Michael Nawrath, Aquatech's sales manager said, "We bring safe and reliable technology solutions to deliver cost sustainable water management that is adaptable to the ever changing needs of the gas producers in the region."

Founded in 1981, Aquatech is based in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, which is in the heart of the Marcellus Shale region. Aquatech's distillation evaporator and crystallization technologies treat all levels of shale oil and gas water and wastewater including high total dissolved solids (TDS) production brine. Globally, the company treats nearly 1,000,000 barrels of oil and gas field produced water per day, helping producers minimize the amount of fresh water used in the well development process and significantly reducing the volume of wastewater that must be disposed or treated off-site. This approach alleviates the burden on local water resources during shale gas exploration.
