As a result of its low emissions, VOX now can be immediately deployed for commercial use at oil and gas production pads in the Pennsylvania portion of the Marcellus formation.
EWS's patented "evaporation in a box” (VOX™) technology evaporates produced water from production sites into the atmosphere with low emissions. VOX is mobile, has a small footprint, and is capable of evaporating produced water significantly cheaper when compared to hauling it to a disposal site.
The approval of the low emissions tests for the VOX by the PADEP means that operators can immediately add VOX on-pad and reduce their water disposal costs, without facing new regulatory hurdles.
“We are pleased with the formal acceptance from the PADEP. VOX is now ready for use on-pad, just in time, as our customers face now, more than ever, a challenging environment in which to operate profitably,” said Gregg Johnson, CEO. He further added that:
“We are excited to see the positive response from our customers and are looking forward to scaling up our operating fleet in the Marcellus region. This solution will present a win-win for the Operators as well as for the local community” said Johnson, noting that on-pad evaporation reduces local truck traffic because of the decreased need for hauling produced water to disposal sites.
