DHI offers a crucial service to E&P companies by storing produced water from well sites that are transported by third-party transportation companies to our disposal facilities. During a frack operation, E&P companies generate a great deal of “produced”, or oil-infused water, that is a byproduct of oil and gas drilling and fracking. At the disposal facilities, produced water is subjected to a multi-stage treatment process that separates hydrocarbons and sediments from the water. The hydrocarbons are generally sold back to E&P companies at a slight discount, while the remaining water is eliminated through evaporation.
DHI has multiple disposal facilities in:
ACE just off highway 40 SSE of Vernal, UT
