New technology helps treat waste water in Marcellus Shale operations
|Two local companies involved in the natural gas industry are expecting SteelWater to run deep -- about 6,000 feet deep below the surface in the Marcellus Shale Basin where the thousands of gallons of water used each day to produce gas must be disposed of in an environmentally safe way.|
SteelWater is the name of a joint venture by BLX Inc. and CWM Environmental Inc. that has partnered with a New Mexico company, Altela Inc., to use Altela's patented technology to help solve the water issues associated with developing gas in this region.
The gas trapped in the Marcellus Shale formation, which runs 600 miles through Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York, is a growing industry in Western Pennsylvania.
BLX is an independent producer of natural gas and an oil and gas exploration and development company in Kittanning.
