Page 6 of 55 | May 2017 | 5 WATER MANAGEMENT: KEY PLAYERS In addition to separators, the company's line includes decanter centrifuges, filters, strainers and membranes. Alfa Laval also offers tank cleaning equipment and installation material. The company's DOLPHIN freshwater generators convert seawater into freshwater using vacuum distil- lation, ensuring freshwater with salinity levels below 2 ppm, according to the company's website. Aquatech International Aquatech International provides water purification technology for industrial and infrastructure mar- kets with a focus on desalination, water recycle and reuse, and zero liquid discharge. The company has successfully executed more than 1,000 water man- agement projects in more than 60 countries world- wide, according to its website. Aquatech has offices throughout North America and subsidiaries in Europe, the Middle East, India and China. Water management services include spare parts supply, build-own-operate and maintenance con- tracts, technical audits, leased water treatment sys- tems, technical training and remote monitoring. Water treatment and wastewater services for upstream oil and gas companies include recycle and reuse of produced water, industrial process water, deoiling, induced gas flotation, walnut shell filters/oil removal filters, warm line softening clarification, after filters, ion exchange softening, evaporation, crystalli- zation for zero liquid discharge, brine neutralization, and high-temperature membrane. These services can be applied to coal seam gas/coalbed methane associ- ated water treatments, produced water deoiling, pro- duced water treatments for boiled feedwater makeup, and evaporator brine treatments for discharge/deep well injection. With treatment processes based on technology from Aquatech International, Aquatech Energy Ser- vices (AES) provides services on a turnkey basis to the unconventional shale and conventional oil and natural gas industry to manage and treat for beneficial reuse and to dispose drilling, flowback and produced water. In addition, Fluid Recovery Services (FRS) operates within Appalachia providing turnkey water services to the unconventional and conventional oil and natural gas industry, providing the same man- agement and treatment services as AES. FRS and AES provide disinfection services using biocides and disinfectants to treat source water and produced water for sulfate reducing bacteria, reduc- tion of hydrogen sulfide and prevention of biofilm formation within oil and water tank batteries. The companies operate multiple merchant cen- tral water treatment facilities to treat and dispose of wastewater from E&P activities. Baker Hughes Baker Hughes provides well chemical products and services that are designed to help improve hydrocarbon production and reduce operating and water-related costs throughout the entire life cycle of the well. The Baker Hughes H2prO surface water treat- ment program uses the industry's oldest problem— unwanted water production and flowback—to solve its newest challenge of getting enough water for oil- field operations. This technology allows operators to get the water needed in the right place, at the right time and with the right quality to perform hydraulic fracturing, waterflooding and other crucial downhole operations, the company said. The H2prO SR water management service uses proven filtration technology in a highly mobile sys- tem to remove suspended solids from produced and flowback water. The H2prO HD well chemicals service uses chlorine dioxide, an environmentally preferred chemistry, to treat produced and flowback water in tanks, reserve pits, impoundments and ponds. Aquatech's SmartMOD is a modular water recycle system for produced water treatment in the steam-assisted gravity drainage process.
