Kendra II and De Nora to complete produced water recycling facility

Kendra II, a water transportation, management and disposal provider, and De Nora, a designer of safe and sustainable water disinfection and oxidation, filtration and electrochlorination solutions, are nearing completion of a produced water recycling facility in the heart of the Marcellus Shale, in Pennsylvania. The facility is capable of processing over 18,000 barrels per day of produced water, with Kendra II providing transportation, water management, logistics and disposal services as required by the customers. De Nora will provide quality brine for frac operations in the basin, reducing operators’ water disposal costs and fresh water drawdown. When combined with Kendra’s transportation capabilities, the new facility will serve as a hub for the provision of on-site generation of sodium hypochlorite — a safe, nonhazardous oxidant for use by operators for their disinfection needs.
