Can You Recycle Hydraulic Fracturing (Frac) Water?

The Answer Is Yes

Many in the oil and gas industry are wondering: can (and should) we reuse water on the frac’ing site?

Will it save us money?

The answer to that is mixed. For now, we’ll say yes, it can be a cheaper, and better option sometimes. But, that’s not always the best option. Select Energy can and will recycle and reuse frac’ing water for future projects. For many companies, that’s a great option. Common scenarios for using recycling, include:

  • Lack of access to a nearby disposal well
  • Cost of disposal is higher

In other situations, recycling is more costly. Circumstances include:

  • A nearby and easily-accessible disposal well
  • Cost of cleanup is lower
  • Cost of disposal is lower

Most of the time, Select Energy can recycle more inexpensively than other options. Through a variety of excellent new technologies, Select Energy can save many companies money. Common practices for recycling frac water include:

  • pH adjustment “floc and drop”
