Gas well wastewater treatment – Standing Stone Facility
In March 2013, Eureka Resources broke ground on the construction of a new oil and gas well wastewater treatment facility to serve producers involved in Marcellus Shale development. This facility will be located just off of Route 6 in Standing Stone Township, Bradford County, near Towanda, PA. Like the Williamsport plant, this facility is conveniently located for developers and producers.
This facility will provide pretreatment of raw wastewater from well sites and will offer treated distilled water for immediate drilling and production reuse. The first phase for this plant, to be completed in 2013, will offer pretreatment, as well as crystallizer technology, which processes wastewater into distilled water and commercial grade sodium chloride. In 2014, second phase construction will allow for brine crystallization to generate commercial grade calcium chloride. That second phase also will include the addition of membrane biological reactor (reverse osmosis) treatment capabilities to allow direct discharge and unrestricted reuse of treated water. Methanol rectification capability and oil recovery capabilities are also being considered for this facility.
The Standing Stone facility will have a capacity of 420,000 gallons per day of wastewater pretreatment, plus this plant will have the capacity to process up to 5,000 barrels of wastewater per day using the crystallization process.
