  • Breakthrough Technology Is Good For Fracking — And The Environment
    technique removes iron and sulfate from the AMD water and produces a metal sulfate byproduct that can be combined with other chemicals water and sand to break up shale deposits Such formulas or cocktails as described by Carolyn Guju Kotsol president and CEO of Winner Water Services are proprietary and closely guarded by oil and gas companies We know they re using some level of metal sulfates boric sulfate or iron sulfate for example to some degree of quality concentration and volume reports Kotsol What we hope to do with this award is quantify and qualify what it is that we have and then exercise that with the oil and gas community and see if it fits their needs Demonstration Project The DOE grant of 900 000 was awarded through the National Energy Technology Laboratory NETL and is being used to fund a full scale 100 GPM demonstration project in Sarver PA Pennsylvania is a logical locale due to the abundance of abandoned mines and fracking sites from Marcellus Shale and it also happens to be the home of Winner Water Services Following eight years of laboratory and bench scale development the HydroFlex treatment process is now being tested on an actual abandoned mine Fawn Mine 91 which was closed in the early 1980s and is owned by ArcelorMittal Pristine Resources Ribbon cutting for the project which will continue through 2015 took place on Oct 28 A big part of this is that the DOE wants us to validate this technology for commercial readiness said Kotsol who spoke at the event It s very hard to do early on at a lab scale you ve got to be far enough along where your technologists and your engineers feel very comfortable and they have proven results at a certain scale that the technology is ready to be deployed on a commercial level Winner Water Services President and CEO Carolyn Guju Kotsol addresses the crowd at the opening ceremony for the company s advanced water treatment facility in Sarver PA How It Works HydroFlex is a stand alone closed loop process that strips the sulfate and iron out of raw AMD water via liquid liquid separation The process incorporates ionic attraction and a hydrocarbon blend of materials that we call an extractant explained Kotsol We interact the extractant directly with the AMD water and the ions proceed to exchange The sulfate ions the iron ions even other metal ions that exist in the AMD water are exchanged with this extractant when we do the liquid liquid contact The extractant or oil goes one way and the treated water goes another way Kotsol described the separation process as similar to that of oil and water in salad dressing When you put them together in the bottle and you mix them up you see that they do mix and they do contact but eventually they separate out The difference here besides the obvious is that Winner is using 1 400 gallon vessels with a

  • Record-Breaking CO2 Well Stimulation Yields Outstanding Results
    and 80 respectively The Middle Montney well at Elmworth 2 20 70 7W6 was completed using sliding sleeve frac technology and an energized CO2 foam fracture with 70 individual stages A total of 10 531 m3 88 317 Bbls of load fluid and 9 226 m3 of CO2 distributed an average of 31 75 tonnes of proppant per stage over the 70 stages Only through working with Ferus were we able to implement this type of completion for our 2 20 well states CEO of Blackbird Energy Inc Garth Braun in his Executive Letter January 2016 One reason we chose to use CO2 was its superior viscosity and therefore its ability to place sand more effectively In addition CO2 has also been proven to carry proppant deeper into a reservoir which leads potentially to lower decline rates higher recovery rates and better productivity overall Furthermore the switch to CO2 allowed us to demonstrate deliverability of the Middle Montney at an earlier stage than a slickwater frac would allow under a testing scenario Based upon long term forecasting of reserves recovery between slickwater and CO2 foams SPE 168632 Ferus estimates the incremental reserves of the well are approximately 25 to 30 per cent higher than an equivalent slickwater well Water Savings Fracturing with CO2 foam fluid also provides environmental benefits by significantly reducing the water volume needed to complete the fracturing treatment We believe the estimated equivalent of slickwater usage had the well been completed that way instead of with CO2 would have been 30 000 m3 said Murray Reynolds Director of Technical Services at Ferus By fracturing the well with CO2 not only did Blackbird achieve significantly higher production it also reduced water usage by approximately two thirds which represents responsible resource stewardship Furthermore the use of CO2 meant fewer pumpers required onsite and reduced land footprint due to less water storage needs Additional Benefits of CO2 Well Stimulations Reduced Truck Traffic Incremental total truck traffic reduction at an estimated 21 500 m3 per truck equates to 322 less trucks on the lease and on the highway Reduced Greenhouse Gas GHG Emissions Less truck traffic reduces GHG emissions and community impacts Ferus sources its Canadian CO2 from industrial waste stacks which would otherwise be emitted and turns pollution into a commercial product Wells stimulated with energized fluids also require less horsepower to perform the hydraulic fracturing treatment another source of decreased GMG emissions Ferus is proud to be a partner on the well completions with an innovative company like Blackbird Energy said Tyler Dahlseide VP Energized Fluids at Ferus The production test results of the 2 20 well demonstrate to the energy sector that CO2 is an effective fracture fluid alternative that achieves both economic and environmental objectives About Ferus Ferus Inc and Ferus LP privately held by The Energy Minerals Group and part of the Ferus Group of Companies deliver integrated solutions to the energy industry for well stimulation well completions and enhanced oil recovery applications Ferus provides a

  • Experts Cast Doubt On EPA Fracking Investigation
    in June that it did not find evidence that these mechanisms have led to widespread systemic impacts on drinking water resources in the United States Now a new government critique from the agency s own experts is questioning that assessment The Hydraulic Fracturing Research Advisory Panel a unit of the EPA s Science Advisory Board SAB published its evaluation of the EPA s report on Jan 7 NPR reported The new report questioned the clarity and adequacy of support of several findings in the EPA s fracking analysis It said these findings seek to draw national level conclusions regarding the impacts of hydraulic fracturing on drinking water resources but that the findings are inconsistent with the observations data and levels of uncertainty in the agency s research One of the biggest concerns is that the original EPA report said researchers did not find evidence that hydraulic fracturing mechanisms have led to widespread systemic impacts on drinking water resources in the United States That s not a perfect statement according to the new report The SAB finds that this statement does not clearly describe the system s of interest e g groundwater surface water nor the definitions of systemic widespread or impacts The SAB is also concerned that this statement does not reflect the uncertainties and data limitations described in the body of the Report associated with such impacts The statement is ambiguous and requires clarification and additional explanation the new report said Dave Yoxtheimer an associate with Penn State University s Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research noted that the EPA s original report is has been misinterpreted by some people according to NPR Yoxtheimer said the EPA s statement that it had found no evidence of widespread impact on water supplies may have been misinterpreted as a green light
