One Vision LLC

Saltwater - Wastewater - Production Water Management

One Vision LLC is dedicated to fulfilling the industry’s growing need for total water management services. These include the need of sourcing freshwater for fracking operations as well as safe and effective Salt Water Disposal facilities in emerging resource plays. The drilling and hydraulic fracturing of an oil & gas well typically requires 4-5 million gallons of fresh water per well, and One Vision LLC is a leading provider in its operating areas. Additionally, producing oil & gas wells produce brine, or salt water, when producing oil and gas, and this salt water needs to be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner. 

What can One Vision do?

Salt water disposal is a highly regulated area, and One Vision LLC understands your need to manage water in a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly manner. That’s why One Vision LLC brings you an innovative operating system with intelligent monitoring and control capabilities that can maximize productivity and withstand the rigorous requirements of the oil field environment.

Where does Saltwater come from?

The nation's oil and gas wells produce at least nine billion liters of contaminated water per day, according to an Argonne National Laboratory report. And that is an underestimate of the amount of brine, fracking fluid and other contaminated water that flows back up a well along with the natural gas or oil, because it is based on incomplete data from state governments gathered in 2007.

Let One Vision Help You

We are happy to answer any questions you have about our company or Salt Water Disposal. One Vision LLC provides consulting and project management for Industrial and commercial clients.

Typically in a disposal facility, permanent surface tanks accumulate the oil and gas wastes and separate the contaminants. Then high pressure pumps are used to inject the waste back into the permitted injection zone through the cased disposal well.

 

What is a Saltwater Disposal Well?

salt water disposal well is a disposal site for water collected as a byproduct of oil and gas production. Quite often when oil and gas are pumped out of the earth, they aren't pure enough for distribution. The oil and gas go through a separation phase or are treated with chemicals that extract the impurities. After the oil or gas is treated, there is water leftover (referred to as "salt water") that must be carefully handled. Companies may choose to recycle the salt water by injecting it back into the well for secondary oil recovery, or dispose of it at a salt water well disposal site. Regulations for the disposal of this water vary from state to state, but the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) monitors the disposal closely to ensure ground water is not contaminated.

Hydraulic Fracturing Fluid Recovery & Disposal

One key component of the oilfield service industry is hydraulic fracturing fluid or saltwater disposal, commonly referred to as SWD. Operators are responsible for the disposal of flowback water, produced water and hydraulic fracturing fluid (“frac fluid”) – creating vast potential liabilities for the fast moving majors in the industry. In layman terms, the saltwater produced from the drilling and expansion of wells has to go somewhere. If the saltwater and drilling fluids are improperly disposed, the responsibility falls squarely upon the producer of said water.

Salt Water - Flow Back Water - Production Water

During the completion phase of an oil/gas well, fresh water is used to fracture the shale formation. A typical multi-stage frac process uses at least 100,000 barrels of fresh water. When this water “flows back” it is salty and must be transported away from the drilling site and disposed of in a permitted disposal well. The need for disposal of flow-back water occurs only during the drilling of a new well, however flow-back water disposal is often the second-largest expense of drilling a new well.

Water that comes to the surface during the normal oil or gas production process is naturally occurring briny water that is generated from deep within the earth along with the oil and gas. The need to dispose of “produced water” is on-going and continues throughout the life of the oil/gas well. Servicing this disposal need produces recurring revenues, frequently on a daily basis. Produced water disposal is usually the largest lease operating expense of a producing well.

Industrial Tank Cleaning

Our industrial vacuum trailers are capable of removing heavy tank bottoms from crude oil tank batteries and pipelines in the oilfield.  Our service includes a fully trained and experienced operator capable of completing the job in a clean and safe manner to our customers satisfaction.

Frac tanks are utilized in many industries but are concentrated in the oil field. One Vision can offer comprehensive solutions for frac tank cleaning.

  • Renders explosive volatile vapors inside the fuel tank harmless
  • Wastewater is removed and remediated easily
  • Cleans leaking hydrocarbon wastes when applied to contaminated soils
  • Less disruption to surrounding areas
  • Reduces worker exposure to volatile hazards and hazardous cleaning compounds

Saltwater Disposal Process

Safe and Effective Wastewater Disposal

Step One

Transport

Trucks deliver produced water & frac flowback from oilfield.

Step Two

Separation

Wastewater enters gun barrel tank where oil & water are gravity separated.

Step Three

Holding

Oil & oil water emulsion are pumped to separate holding tanks.

Step Four

Disposal

Oil water emulsion injected into saltwater disposal well.
