Select Energy Services LLC has entered into a strategic partnership with X-Chem/Terra, an oilfield wastewater treatment and recycling company.
Together, the companies have launched three recent water treatment projects in the Permian Basin: two for freshwater sterilization combined with flowback recycling once the fracked wells are producing; the other being a produced water treatment project for the complete reuse of produced water for future slickwater fracs. The companies are jointly pursuing several additional projects in the US.
Terra will provide the equipment, manpower, expertise, and logistics for on-the-fly water treatment for frac use. Terra has a ClO2 water treatment system, and Select will provide the infrastructure and water focus to utilize Terra’s capabilities.
