Midland-based Endeavor Energy Resources and Select Water Solutions said last week they completed one of the largest recycled water jobs in Midland Basin. The four-fleet Endeavor project in Martin County had recycling and delivery rates of up to 300,000 b/d of water. More than 8.2 million barrels of produced water were recycled at Select’s Big Spring recycling system in Howard County and transported to Endeavor’s pad site during the one-month project. The recycled produced water was sourced from six operators within a 10-mile radius of the Big Spring system and delivered using electric pumps along a pipeline from Howard County to Martin County.
John Schmitz, president and CEO of Select, said Aug. 14, “Sustainable recycling and transportation of produced water is an integral piece of the future of water stewardship in the Midland Basin.” Select’s Big Spring system has 1.7 million barrels of commercially permitted treated water storage and buffer storage.
