Breakwater Energy Partners has finished constructing the largest water recycling facility in the Permian Basin.
Last year, a Texas and New Mexico law was passed that determined oil and gas operators own the wastewater from hydraulic fracturing. The companies can sell that water to water recycling companies, who would over legal responsibility for the toxic fluids. Breakwater Energy’s 80-acre facility between Howard and Martin Counties can process up to 250,000 barrels per day of such water.
Jason Jennaro, CEO of Breakwater Energy Partners said, “It is difficult for producers to recycle 100% of the wastewater from hydraulic fracturing because they often lack the ability to aggregate enough recycled water when they need it, or they are unable to distribute their water to others when they have too much.” The facility aims to help to address the water recycling problem for oil and gas producers.
