Greentech Lead America: Omni Water Solutions, a provider
of highly automated mobile water systems for water treatment and re-use, has
obtained a permit from the Railroad Commission of Texas to operate commercial
water recycling units in the Eagle Ford Shale. The permit enables the company
to provide mobile water treatment services to oil and gas companies which are
utilizing hydro-fracturing techniques in the area.
“Obtaining this operating permit was a critical
milestone for our company. We look forward to providing our customers with a
cost-effective solution that offers a consistent water quality to support their
completion plans and conserve water throughout the Eagle Ford Shale play,”
said Warren Sumner, CEO of Omni Water Solutions.
Omni Water Solutions offers the HIPPO platform
for frac’ing operations. These mobile units come equipped with the
company’s OctoZone technology, a real-time sense and respond automation system
that enables oil and gas operators to treat and re-use produced water at a
lower cost with more consistent results. After treatment through the platform,
the water can be re-used in subsequent wells instead of lost to disposal.
“Omni’s platform validated the treatment objectives
set for the Eagle Ford Shale permit. Our technology and our company are now
well positioned to achieve permitting in other shale plays in the State of
Texas,” said Billy Roberts, director of Research and Design for Omni Water
