• Pinedale Anticline facility in Wyoming continues to set a benchmark for the oil and gas industry
DENVER, CO, May 18, 2010 -- High Sierra Water Services, a leading flowback and produced water treatment specialist, announced today that its flagship Anticline facility has surpassed 22 million barrels (924 million gallons) of water treated. The facility, which is located on the Pinedale Anticline in Wyoming, provides water treatment services for oil/gas companies located in the surrounding area.
The Anticline facility is capable of processing up to 60,000 barrels per day (2.5 million gallons) for frac recycle and up to 20,000 barrels per day (840,000 gallons) for discharge. Currently, frac and produced water is being treated to a better-than-drinking-water standard and approximately 1.5 million barrels (63 million gallons) have been discharged into the New Fork River, part of the Colorado River system.
High Sierra Water Services utilizes a "technology neutral" philosophy designed to integrate the best available technologies into its patented water treatment processes. This allows the company to not be tied to one single manufacturer's equipment or process and enables a flexible approach to create customized options for its oil and gas partners.
"Our Anticline facility continues to be at the forefront of water treatment technology and demonstrates our proven ability to address the challenges faced by the oil and gas industry," said Jim Winter, President of High Sierra Water Services. "Not only have we been able to process massive amounts of water, but we have done it in a manner that meets and exceeds regulatory requirements. Twenty-two million barrels is an industry leading benchmark that was achieved by developing the best solution for everyone involved."
