Upstream Oil and Gas
Unconventional production or hydraulic fracturing (fracking) requires large volumes of water, used in short periods of time, to carry proppant downhole to fracture and hold open tight formations. Best practices dictate using co-located produced water and recycling before disposal. MYCELX solutions have provided millions of barrels of cleaned produced water reducing the need for fresh water in fracking operations, lowering the cost of production.
Operators have varied water sources to manage while maintaining a stable product quality.
MYCELX Polishers are applied downstream of secondary treatment equipment in a tertiary mode. MYCELX REGEN is typically applied in a secondary treatment spot. MYCELX solutions have been used in unconventional water recycling since 2015.
