New Technology Primed and Prepped for Permian Challenge
Solaris Water Midstream has been expanding its infrastructure footprint in the Permian for the past several years. With assets in the Midland and Delaware basins, the company has been recycling in the Midland Basin for more than two years and started water recycling at its Lobo Ranch facility in Eddy County in July. In its first few months of operation, Lobo Ranch recycled up to 80,000 bbl/d of produced water. In New Mexico’s Lea County, Solaris Water is mobilizing the Bronco Produced Water Recycling and Blending Center and expects to begin delivering treated water to operators from that facility in late September. The Bronco facility also will have the capacity to treat in excess of 80,000 bbl/d. Solaris Water has plans to construct additional large-scale recycling and blending facilities in Eddy and Lea counties over the next few years.
