Treatment company resumes frack water treatment business

Aug. 27, 2015

WHARTON, N.J. — Aug. 24, 2015 — The method uses a temporary treatment system that the company began using at construction sites.

WHARTON, N.J. — Aug. 24, 2015 — Ground/Water Treatment & Technology LLC (GWTT) recently returned to the oil and gas frack water treatment market, according to a press release.

The company made the decision to re-enter the market because it is confident its process can handle the large amount of wastewater the fracking process produces, noted the release.

“We’ve seen that other people who try to treat frack flow back water fail in this regard, because the treatment system they use isn’t robust enough to maintain 100% of the time,” CEO Robert Kunzel said in the release. “This type of treatment follows our core business model of the last 20 years, so it only made sense to return to treating fracking flow back water.”

GWTT’s method uses a temporary treatment system it began using at construction sites, stated the release. A frack well pad treats suspended solids and barium, with a flow rate of 4,000 barrels per shift, explained Kunzel in the release.

The company’s system is designed to save costs and operate efficiently and with less environmental impact, reported the release.

"We are excited to re-enter this field and we believe that we have unique capabilities and experience that can bring great value to the client," Kunzel added in the release.
