Increased gas consumption, falling prices and regulatory pressures are pushing producers to treat and reuse water

Kicking Hydraulic Fracturing's Water Addiction

The oil industry is effectively a water industry which delivers oil as a byproduct.

OriginOil Inc. (OTC/QB: OOIL), developer of Electro Water Separation (EWS), the high-speed, chemical-free process to clean up large quantities of water, announced today that in a letter to shareholders, CEO Riggs Eckelberry reported that as oil prices continue to fall, energy consumption increases — and water use. For every barrel of oil, the petroleum industry must handle eight barrels of water.

Increasingly, treatment and reuse is the money-saving option. That's why the global Produced water treatment market size is estimated to exceed $8.0 billion by 2019. The treated water can benefit drought-parched areas like California, and help the industry improve its image as a good neighbor.
