AmericaCNG Selects OriginOil EWS Technology for Treatment of Frac Flowback

OriginOil, Inc., developer of Electro Water Separation™ (EWS), the high-speed, chemical-free process to clean up large quantities of water, announced that AmericaCNG has selected EWS for the treatment of frac flowback and produced water.

“We are excited to add our water treatment technology to AmericaCNG’s unique W-Grade Gas Processing ACNG™ system, contributing the water treatment part of the total solution offered by AmericaCNG to help E&P companies reduce their development cost at the wellhead”

AmericaCNG, OriginOil’s latest OEM, plans to market EWS to its LNG equipment customers at shale plays across the United States by leveraging OriginOil’s Throughput Program, which is designed to eliminate capital costs for operators.

“Our mission at AmericaCNG is to help operators dramatically reduce costs by replacing the diesel fuel used for well site operations with the methane and ethane gas they are already generating,” said Joseph Farley, director of global business development for AmericaCNG. “By using our gas processing equipment and gas turbine generators for drilling rigs and frac spreads, we project that an E&P company can save in the low to mid seven figures annually per rig.

“In our discussions with E&P operators, it became clear that we should also provide equipment and services for water treatment,” Farley added. “Water is a very large component in hydraulic fracturing and we need to conserve as much as possible. Water conservation also dramatically reduces truck traffic. After much research, we found that a water treatment system based on OriginOil’s EWS technology is the best solution, and we intend to offer it alongside our own systems.”

“Typically there are relatively high costs associated with moving a lot of water into and out of a well site,” said Riggs Eckelberry, CEO of OriginOil. “In many regions, there is a limited amount of fresh water, and those water resources need to be conserved to supply many types of users. OriginOil has developed EWS, a novel, high speed, chemical-free process that cleans up produced water and recycles frac flowback water, reduces harm to the environment and lowers costs.

“We are excited to add our water treatment technology to AmericaCNG’s unique W-Grade Gas Processing ACNG™ system, contributing the water treatment part of the total solution offered by AmericaCNG to help E&P companies reduce their development cost at the wellhead,” Eckelberry added.

When applied to the oil and gas industry, OriginOil’s EWS technology is used in a continuous process to remove oils, suspended solids, insoluble organics and bacteria from produced and frac flowback water in well operations. This allows the water to be easily recycled for future fracking operations or disposed of safely.

“AmericaCNG has a very aggressive plan, which has immense implications for us,” Eckelberry continued. “They believe that our Throughput Program, which is designed to eliminate capital requirements for operators, will help them realize their plan. We intend to stand side by side with AmericaCNG to show their capital partners how our technology and this financing program will help them implement their plan to achieve widespread gas re-use at the well site.”

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
