H2prO HMS Water Management Service

Reuse your produced and flowback water

Untreated heavy-metal solids can negatively impact fracture fluid formulation and the reservoir. Using the H2prO HMS water management service, you can reliably and economically remove heavy metals and suspended solids. This mobile, nonchemical electrocoagulation treatment enables 100% reuse of produced and flowback water in hydraulic fracturing operations without potentially damaging the reservoir.

Improve separation efficiency

Our H2prO HMS service uses exclusive electrocoagulation technology free of chemicals. Built on decades of successful industrial water treatment, it removes contaminants that can damage the reservoir and cause electrode scaling. This can result in costly nonproductive time (NPT). Electrocoagulation technology is a very cost-effective treatment. It does not require filters that can clog quickly and require frequent replacements, adding to cost and NPT. Electrocoagulation also is more cost-effective than chemical clarification, which requires substantial chemical volumes and generates large amounts of sludge.

Unlike traditional electrocoagulation systems, the H2prO HMS service uses a patent-pending design that prevents electrode fouling to ensure consistent, dependable treatment. Additionally, the applied electric field improves contaminant coagulation for better separation efficiency compared to chemical treatment methods.

Easily mobilized and cost-effective

The H2prO system is housed in a rugged mobile unit. Its compact size allows it to be easily mobilized to your wellsite or tank battery. The unit can be set up onsite in one hour of rig-up time. Onsite water treatment eliminates the cost, logistics, and potential hazards of transporting waste water.

A single H2prO HMS system can

  • Treat up to 8,500 bbl (1014 m3) of water per day
  • Remove 99% of suspended solids
  • Reduce iron levels to less than 10 mg/L
  • Reduce hardness and levels of barium, strontium, and manganese by 20%

With this system, you can

  • Prevent potential formation damage when the water is reused in fracture fluids
  • Enable water reuse in cross-linked fracture fluid formulations
  • Limit scale formation
