Produced Water Storage Hub Project:
As unconventional development continues to ramp up, sourcing freshwater has become more difficult as Exploration and Production (E&P) companies face higher competition from competitors and municipalities. Producers need to consider developing strong water management plans to stay competitive. Companies should start looking at produced water and flow-back as an asset, which can be optimized to extract value out of every m3 of water used, as opposed to a liability. This doesn’t need to be expensive. A solid water management plan can produce cost savings.
Aximus Engineering has successfully planned and executed the storage (60,000 m3), transportation and distribution (pipeline) of Frac fluids to support well completion work in the Kakwa area. This has resulted in a significant decrease in the reliance of fresh water for completion activities.
