Bosque Systems sees bright future for water management
FORT WORTH, Texas -- Bosque Systems, a diversified oil and gas fluids management service company, treated and managed close to 200 million barrels of produced and flowback water for oil and gas operators last year. The company is engaged in sourcing, gathering, storing, treating and delivery of frac ready water to numerous operators.
"A few years ago, Bosque's business was based solely within the saltwater disposal arena where we own and operate facilities in Texas, Oklahoma, and North Dakota," said Clane LaCrosse, president and CEO of Bosque Systems. "Today our treatment, recycling and reuse programs account for more than half of our revenues and we forecast that this trend will increase in the future."
Bosque Systems works as a partner with oil and gas operators and handles millions of barrels at all phases of the fluid management life cycle. The solutions offered may include sourcing, gathering systems, pipelines, water storage solutions, and various water treatments depending on the water quality, drilling pattern and goals of the operators.
"The introduction of our DIONIX water treatment system was a turning point for Bosque Systems," said Peter Pappas, V.P. of business development for Bosque Systems. "From that point, we generated a lot of interest from operators to recycle flowback or produced water," Peter continued. From this initial success, the company introduced other technologies to provide a single point of contact to operators in need of treatment and recycling.
In the Wolfcamp play, which lies in a very drought prone area, the company is leading the charge to allow operators to reuse 100% of their flowback and produced water, thus minimizing fresh water withdrawal and reducing truck traffic in the region by using pipeline across fields.
