Epiphany saves customers up to 60% over alternate solutions
It’s required in traditional oil and gas wells, hydraulic fracture (“frack”) wells, refineries, and power plants.
According to the US Energy Information Administration, hydro-fracturing of a single shale gas well typically requires 3 to 5 million gallons of water. Much of the water returns back to the surface in the form of "flowback" water within the first month after drilling a well. The majority of flowback water is treated and reused for drilling new wells.
The remaining water is gradually carried back to the surface in the form of high salinity produced over the next several decades as the well produces oil or gas.
Because of high concentrations of salt and heavy metals, produced water is either transferred to treatment facilities or to disposal facilities, where it is injected into deep disposal wells.
Both methods require moving the water far away from the original well pad. Over a well’s lifespan, the cost of handling produced water can be up to 30% of the well’s operating expenses
Epiphany’s E5H, E10X, and EES1000 solve the problem by purifying the water on the well pad or at a central site. Epiphany's solution reduces risks, saves money, preserves the fresh water supply, and mitigates environmental impact.
