Water Treatment & Recycling

Smart Chemical Services supplies a full line of cost-effective and compliant water treatment solutions.

From completion to downstream processing, Smart Chemical Services believes that “Water is Everything.”™ Conservation of resources and environmental stewardship are extremely important aspects of our present and future industries. To this end, Smart Chemical Services has developed our “Think Outside the Pipe”™ process, which we execute with every project.

Water’s impact on a reservoir and the long-term production of oil and natural gas must be considered in the processing, treatment and transportation of produced fluids. Managing water from completion to production has a substantial impact on our customers’ profitability. Wisely employing this important resource can present some interesting and unique challenges.

By using a simple, yet sophisticated chemistry, Smart Chemical Services is able to effectively treat frac water, water for industrial applications and produced water.

Frac Water

In some areas, such as the Texas Panhandle, Permian Basin and southeastern New Mexico, using fresh water when drilling an oil or natural gas well is not an option. Fresh water is scarce, expensive to transport and it can damage the formation. Additionally, in some localities it is illegal to use produced water.

Smart Chemical Services has a solution, and our team boasts considerable experience in processing produced water for reuse as frac water. Using our “Think Outside the Pipe”™ philosophy, Smart Chemical Services has successfully treated millions barrels of produced water, safely removing H2S, iron, bacteria and suspended solids. (We can remove H2S to zero parts per million and remove the iron to less than 1 part per million.) After treating the water on-site with our mobile unit, it is ready for use as frac water.

In total, Smart Chemical Services is recycling over 600,000 bbls of water for frac re-use every month.

Industrial Application

Water is the universal solvent and is a great heatsink. Yet, water wants to absorb everything, including minerals, like iron. Depending on the type of water in your area, it can scale and become corrosive, acting as an insulator. This can be detrimental for gas plants, refineries, paper plants and other light industry. If you are going to use the water in a cooling tower or boiler, you must inhibit scale formation.

Smart Chemical Services treats the water so it is useable in your industrial application. Our scale inhibitors, corrosion inhibitors and biocides are proven to prevent scale and kill bacteria, respectively. Smart Chemical services guarantees to regularly test its chemicals to ensure optimal performance. 

Produced Water

Putting non-recycled water down hole can result in scale, corrosion and water emulsions, plugging the formation and clogging the channel for oil to flow through. To maximize productivity, Smart Chemical Services treats produced water with emulsion breaker, biocide, corrosion inhibitors and scale inhibitors, depending on the water’s needs. But our role doesn’t conclude there; effectively managing completion waters can have a significant effect on production and production equipment. 

Like with our chemicals for industrial applications, once we deliver the chemicals to the site, we set the chemical rate or inform the client of the rate to pump. We then return to the site once a week to test chemical levels and performance.
