Produced Water | Session VI - Mitch Burroughs

  2. 2. © ARMADA WATER | Page In 2010 the US produced between 7 – 10 barrels (bbl's) of associated production water with each barrel of oil produced. The water oil ratio is expected to dramatically increase due to: Advances in drilling techniques Development of unconventional hydrocarbon plays that need fracking to be able to produce Maturing of Oil and Gas fields In 2010 the US produced 21 billion barrels of associated production water which required treatment and/or disposal. Recent advances in fracking efficiency have energized the onshore US market. Fracking requires a large amount of water per well, on average more than 150,000 bbl’s per frack job. More than 15,000 wells were fracked in 2010 resulting in a water usage of more than 2.2 billion barrels. On average each well produces 40%“flow-back frack water”that needs treatment and/or disposal.

  4. 4. © ARMADA WATER | Page Produced Water: Waste or Asset? Current models focus on waste Haulage & Transport companies feel threatened Disposal well companies have no incentive to convert to treatment … where’s the ROI? Companies selling fresh water have no incentive to convert to treatment Long legislative processes to get permits Liability inconsistencies across states Risk concerns for the oil & gas company, what will I do with my production water if the treatment plant doesn’t function according to plan? Treatment cost vs market price . Finding the right balance Driving the change from waste to asset requires an integrated service approach to economically re-purpose produced water in an efficient and effective manner
  5. 5. © ARMADA WATER | Page A water-cycle solutions focus Restore the balance in the water cycle Produced Water Drilling/Fracking/ Production Process •  Recycles water for perpetual use •  Converts produced water into an asset •  Integrated solution that reduces costs while monetizing waste streams to suit local needs. Armada’s Disposal Wells < 10% Disposal Armada’s Treatment Train Clean Water Armada’s Transport & Logistics

  7. 7. © ARMADA WATER | Page Unique approach in that technology components will be adapted to treat various types of water. A project pilot study will define final treatment train configuration Propriety Treatment Train will consist of four modules; Module-1 Module-2 Module-3 Module-4 Oil Water Separator Aeration Walnut Shell filter VOC removal Oil Paraffin Asphaltines Electro Coagulation Electro Precipitation Chemical Precipitation Metals Gels Bacteria Ceramic Filters Carbon Filter Solids Heavy Metals Rare Minerals Chlorine removal Reverse Osmosis Micro Filter Desalting Dissolved Organic Na removal REMOVALUNIT Armada Treatment Train System
  8. 8. © ARMADA WATER | Page Replace disposal wells and evaporation pits with their associated risks and regulatory challenges. Convert production water into an incremental fresh water source at an up to 90% yield. Reduce water disposal costs by up to 60%. Reduce trucking costs and carbon emissions Allow energy companies to easily and affordably recycle their produced water. (Disposal & Re-use) Modular plant designs allow for small foot-print and in-place scalability Armada converts a waste stream into an asset stream Armada applies proven technology in innovative ways Armada builds business models to ensure win-win client-company relationship Armada’s integrated systems are scalable at commercial levels Armada’s Strategic Advantage
