OriginOil taps Clean Water Technology for Frac Flowback water treatment system

June 8, 2012 |

In California, OriginOil announced the selection of Clean Water Technology, to manufacture the company’s systems for processing up to 1 barrel of petroleum-contaminated “frac flowback” water per minute, or up to 60,000 gallons per day. To shorten time to market, CWT plans to adapt the shells of its own wastewater treatment units already on hand.

Recent third party testing has shown that OriginOil’s process, originally developed for algae harvesting, separated 98% of hydrocarbons from a sample of oil well ‘frac flowback’ water, and the company recently signed an MOU with PACE to collaborate with oil field operators in Texas and elsewhere to improve petroleum recovery and water cleaning for re-use at well sites.
