CANONSBURG, PA, Apr. 5, 2011 -- Aquatech has begun deployment of its mobile frac wastewater treatment solution at a field location in Western Pennsylvania.
The company's MoVap unit is specifically designed for the wastewater treatment needs of oil and gas producers. The solution, which can be transported to virtually any well pad, enables water to be reused or returned to the environment in compliance with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits and meeting compliance levels formerly associated with stationary water treatment facilities.
MoVap can be used in conjunction with Aquatech's other mobile and modular treatment solutions to give natural gas producers access to the full range of wastewater treatment options.
The company says the mobile unit will help natural gas producers minimize the amount of fresh water used in the well development process. They say it will also significantly reduce the volume of wastewater that must be disposed or treated off-site, alleviating the burden on local water resources and roadways.
