Problems provide an opportunity to provide solutions.
GE announced today a “mobile evaporator” unit that will assist natural gas producers recycle untreated water that is a result of the hydraulic fracturing process at the well site. Water is mixed with chemicals and sand and pumped at high pressure thousands of feet below the surface to create fissures in the rock and release the natural gas.
“GE’s objective is to create a solution that not only lessens the environmental impact of gas drilling, but also one that reduces the current treatment cost to service providers and producers. As the mobile evaporator illustrates, our research and development teams are continually working toward offering new solutions to meet our customers’ challenges throughout the industry.”
