For many years, water quality has played a key role in the oil and gas industry. With the widespread adoption of hydraulic fracturing (fracing/fracking), the oil and gas industry's water management needs are higher today than ever, and so is the need to accurately determine water quality. More and more, the industry is looking to water as a valuable commodity rather than a cost.
In a move to preserve natural resources, reduce transportation waste, and control costs, operators and service companies are making efforts to treat and reuse water that was previously considered waste. Some use mobile treatment systems to treat to drinking water standards, while others are reusing water without any treatment. Although widespread "best practices" have yet to be established, one thing is certain: the industry must determine how to best manage its unique water challenges.
With over 60 years of leadership, Hach has the expertise to provide the right solution for your application. Our products are designed specifically for quality, accuracy, and simplicity, and today are in use in different industries around the world. We are actively working with the oil and gas industry to establish best practices and tailor test procedures to meet the industry's challenging testing requirements.
