Wastewater treatment provider Aquatech has been granted a permit to operate a central treatment facility for shale gas producers in Tioga County, Pa. The facility, designed using Aquatech’s MoSuite set of technologies, will deliver a menu of wastewater treatment and recycle services to the regional shale gas producers.

Aquatech has begun accepting customer orders for the facility. MoSuite is a combination of MoTreat and MoVap process units, a pretreatment and distillation evaporator specifically designed to treat drill fluids, frac flowback, production brine and other wastewaters from exploration and production of conventional and unconventional oil and gas. The suite of processing units delivers a tiered menu of services including filtration, disinfection, solids handling, pretreatment and evaporation concentration.

Aquatech’s offering at the Tioga facility will provide wastewater treatment that delivers consistent treated water quality and flexible water management solutions for the industry, the company said.    

Founded in 1981, Aquatech is based in Canonsburg, Pa., which is in the heart of the Marcellus Shale region. Aquatech’s distillation evaporator and crystallization technologies treat all levels of shale oil and gas water and wastewater including high total dissolved solids production brine.
