Fort Worth, TX, Dec. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bosque Systems, LLC, a Texas based leader in water management and treatment solutions for the oil and natural gas industry, has announced the deployment of a new set of mobile trailers designed to safely and cost-effectively remediate against the crystallization of mineral scales in oil and gas wells and equipment.
Millions of gallons of fresh, produced, and flowback water are used to perform hydraulic fracturing. Those various sources may not be compatible with each other or with formation fluids and minerals. Therefore, scale prevention is extremely important for proper fracturing fluid treatment. Fluid and formation incompatibility can lead to severe scaling issues that can permanently damage a well or lead to high remediation costs.
Bosque Systems’ ScaleStopTM scale inhibitor equipment is mobile, efficient and compact with a small footprint, so it can easily and affordably be moved from site to site. The fracturing fluid is treated on-site using a custom header prior to being blended with other fracturing compounds to allow for proper mixing. The injection method is a metered, controlled, and supervised process. ScaleStopTM works to inhibit the crystallization of mineral scales, which if left untreated will agglomerate and form larger scale particles, which can plug and foul the formation, tubulars, and downstream vessels.
“Its superior tagged polymer scale inhibitor offers maximum protection of the formation and wellbore,” said Robert Mitchell, vice president of technology for Bosque Systems. “It is also designed to have a high thermal stability capable of withstanding temperatures up to 375°F,” he continued.
Bosque Systems is on its way to process more than 200 million barrels of produced and flowback water this year, more than 6 times the volume of its closest competitor.
“With a full water management business model, Bosque Systems is well positioned in every major play in the US with an experienced service network and customer support teams dedicated to performing to the highest standards,” said Peter Pappas, vice president of business development for Bosque Systems.
In addition to ScaleStopTM, the company offers DIONIXTM system which is a unique, patented mobile water treatment technology serving the oil and gas industry used to eliminate 100% of all bacteria in the water using Chlorine Dioxide, recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a green biocide.
“When combining both technologies on-site to treat water on-the-fly, operators are ensured to maximize production and prevent well and formation fouling,” Pappas added.
