HOUSTON, July 19, 2017 -- Water Standard Management, a global water treatment company for the oil and gas industry, is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Sorbwater Technology as the exclusive supplier of their products and chemicals in the United States.

The two companies will collaborate in offering eco-friendly, cost-effective and compact oil water separation solutions for the onshore and offshore oil and gas industry. With the addition of Sorbwater technology, Water Standard continues to increase its product offering and expand its technology portfolio, thereby enhancing the company's ability to offer economical solutions for complex water issues. Water Standard-Monarch's design, build and integrate capabilities combined with Sorbwater's patented separation equipment and green chemistry, result in game-changing produced water treatment solutions that are robust, effective, and environmentally friendly.

Water Standard's Chief Technology Officer, Lisa Henthorne, commented, "We are extremely pleased to be working with Sorbwater Technology. Developed for the stringent regulatory environment of the Norwegian offshore market, this green technology can be cost-effectively deployed to enable operators to reduce their environmental footprint and expand the recycle uses for produced and flowback water. This is something Water Standard is passionate about, and we believe it can change the way our industry values water and how the public views our industry."

Together, the companies will build on their commitment to employ sustainable, long term water treatment solutions by designing and offering produced and flowback water treatment facilities. Sorbwater's unique technology, a green and safe flocculent, is extracted from sea weed and enables surface discharge when used in conjunction with applicable separation technology. This reduces disposal into salt water disposal wells and eases the environmental impact of frac'ing operations.
