Quantum Water Services announces start of operations focusing on wastewater in oil & gas industry

July 2, 2019 - Quantum Water Services Corp. announced that it has established operations, with a focus on targeting the remediation of wastewater in the oil & gas industry.

"With on-shore Oil and Gas production, every barrel produced generates up to 12 barrels of wastewater. Most of this wastewater is minimally treated and simply injected back into a well. Using proprietary technology, Quantum will accept used frac water for treatment and remove chemicals in the water to develop derivative products for sale to energy producers and other industry buyers," stated Christian Olson, CEO of Quantum.

Leveraging the combination of industry/field experience from business partners Infinity Resources and Mobile Data, along with River Birch's commitment to leadership in global clean water projects, the company looks to capitalize on this large and growing market focusing on comprehensive wastewater treatment generated during the on-shore production of oil and gas from either conventional or frac-drilled wells.

According to a 2017 Bloomberg article, 30-50 million barrels of wastewater are produced every day in the Permian Basin in Texas. There is anopportunity to establish multiple depots to treat oil and gas wastewater across North America. Quantum plans to grow aggressively to service the market by opening up to 15 depots by 2021.
