Shale Play Water Management

By Aaron D. Horn, Fountain Quail Water Management

The water midstream sector has emerged in the oil and gas industry over the past few years in response to multiple factors, including larger-volume hydraulic-fracturing (fracs) operations, demand for improved capital efficiency and activity in regions with stressed water supplies and limited wastewater disposal options. A trend that is gathering significant momentum is the recycling of flowback and produced fluid as frac water on an unprecedented scale.

XRI Holdings, a leading full-cycle water management and midstream company, strategically acquired Fountain Quail Water Management (FQWM) in early 2019 in order to meet this recycling challenge.
