Saving Our Most Valuable Natural Resource

Basic Energy Services’ Water Solutions Services decrease freshwater needs, water hauling, disposal and pad site congestion. We help save customers' time and money while conserving our most valuable natural resource – water.

We focus on two key areas: recycling water and bacteria control. On every assignment, we work with our customers to develop strategic, customized plans around the project conditions.

Our capabilities address the full spectrum of oilfield wastewater streams – from de-watering drilling fluids to processing frac flowback and produced water for reuse. Our services include chlorine dioxide (ClO2) treatment for wells downhole and surface water applications, including the treatment of freshwater, produced water, and hydraulic fracturing (frac) water.

Water RecyclingTreating to Minimum Required Parameters

We recycle water onsite using treatment options for produced water, drilling wastewater and flowback water. Our extensively trained crews ensure efficiency and safety. We treat to minimum required parameters to make the fluid reusable.

Bacteria Control

We control bacteria to help extend the life of the well and increase production. We use ClO2, a specialized chemical and EPA approved biocide that only a handful of companies can produce. This proven and safe chemical has a kill rate of 99.5%, the best in the business.

We generate ClO2 on-site to treat Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), remove Iron Sulfide, break gels and friction reducers, kill bacteria and eliminate emulsions and biomass. We provide a range of ClO2 programs for customers, including Pre-Treatment, Monthly and Quarterly programs.

Our treatment options include:

  • Open Pits
  • Frac Tanks
  • Downhole
  • Line Cleanouts
  • On the Fly Water Treatment
