The proportioning system allows operators to combine two fluid streams, such as produced water, heavy brine, flowback water, and freshwater to extend the life of water sources and reduce dependence on salt-water disposal wells.

AquaLogic water transfer pumps use sensors and programming to operate and maintain desired water flow rates by modulating pressure within the system. The pumps remotely and automatically transfer water by raising and lowering pump RPM based on incoming and discharge water data points that are collected and shared throughout the system.

The second element of the AquaLogic suite is the proportioning system, which consists of a large manifold equipped with a programmable logic controller (PLC) and various sensors. With the proportioning system, operators can combine two fluid streams, such as produced water, heavy brine, flowback water, and freshwater to extend the life of water sources and reduce dependence on salt-water disposal wells. AquaLogic combines both streams based on operator specifications and can maintain flow rates up to 100 barrels per minute.

Select Energy Services says that incorporating impaired water into completion operations allows energy producers to save money and time spent trucking water to and from worksites. In addition, the remote, self-monitoring system increases personnel utilization while also reducing costs and the chances of human error or recordable safety incidents.
