Recycling Water for Gas Wells in the Barnett Shale (Texas)- Devon Energy Trying This

18 December 2006 at 12:08:03 PM

Glad to read this. I read last week a report that Devon had commissioned about how economicially great they are for the area-well, yes, part of their responsibility must not simply be economic but environmental.

Devon Energy Corporation officials said last week they had three “pilot” programs under way that, if successful, will allow recycling of 75 to 95 percent of the water used in drilling gas wells.

Brad Foster, Devon’s vice president for the firms division that oversees operations in North Texas, told a group of North Texas Community Leaders that a fourth pilot project should be “on-line” soon.

A Devon spokesman said Friday that one of the wells is on a lease near the Wise/Tarrant/Denton County line off Texas 114. The other two are in Johnson County and the fourth is expected to be in Parker County.

“Devon and the other operators in the Barnett Shale are trying to balance the water issue by trying to regenerate the fresh water through recycling,” Foster said in response to a question about heavy use of ground water in the drilling and fracturing process.
