STW Resources Holding Corp., a water reclamation services company, has signed an agreement with Aquatech International of Canonsburg, PA.
STW will purchase and/or lease a fleet of mobile units for the treatment and reclamation of hydraulic fracture flow-back and produced waters from oil and gas production. Stanley Weiner, CEO of STW Resources commented, “Our agreement with Aquatech is part of STW’s roadmap to provide water reclamation to producers in the Marcellus Shale region.”
Aquatech’s mobile technology line includes products such as MoTreat™, a suspended solids separation, filtration, and disinfection unit, and MoVap™, an evaporator / distiller. According to STW, these products address challenges that oil and gas companies face regarding the handling of waste water by processing the water on-site, thus eliminating the need to truck the waste water to disposal sites. The mobile units can be rapidly moved from site to site to meet changes in demand. On-site processing is environmentally friendly and reduces expenses associated with the transportation and remote processing or disposal.
Under the terms of the agreement, STW has the right to purchase or lease the Aquatech mobile water treatment and evaporation units. STW officials say they will begin deploying these units in the Marcellus Shale gas region of Pennsylvania.
