FORT WORTH, TEXAS, Jan. 20, 2014 -- Bosque Systems, the largest independent water management contractor to oil and gas operators in the U.S., has treated and managed close to 200 million barrels of produced and flowback water for oil and gas operators in 2013 and is continuing to expand.
Bosque Systems works as a partner with oil and gas operators and handles millions of barrels at all phases of the fluid management lifecycle. Solutions offered may include sourcing, gathering systems, pipelines, water storage solutions, and various water treatments depending on the water quality, drilling pattern and goals of the operators.
The company's relationship with major operators has grown from disposal to full water lifecycle management. Likewise, Bosque Systems has introduced certain technologies to provide a single point of contact to operators in need of treatment and recycling. It also continues to hire specialist operators and technicians in markets including the Eagle Ford Shale, the Cline Shale, Permian Basin, Mid-Con region, and the Bakken.
In the Wolfcamp play for example, considered one of the largest oil and gas discovery in the world and a very drought-prone area, the company is allowing operators to reuse 100 percent of their flowback and produced water, thus minimizing freshwater withdrawal and drastically reducing truck traffic in the region by using pipeline across fields.
The company leases land and sets up tanks, containing up to 40,000 bbls of recycled water, and other equipment to capture, treat, and make this water available for the operator. In this region, Bosque Systems allows for blending up to 30 percent recycled and treated water within producers' operations.
The produced water is mixed with freshwater at the well site. To date, the same operator has used about 2,000,000 barrels (about 84 million gallons) of recycled water, which, without this initiative, would have been all freshwater. Blended water has helped complete over 35 wells in the Eldorado portion of the Wolfcamp since April.
