Hydro Recovery LP (Hydro) announced today that it launched its new website to provide information to both its customers and the general public about who the company is, what it is doing, and how it will be an environmentally friendly solution and affordable solution for the treatment of natural gas frac water. 

Hydro Recovery is a manufacturer of Hydraulic Stimulation Fluid (HSF™). The process will utilize high total dissolved solids fluids (HTDSF) which are classified as a residual waste and process it into a reusable HSF™ product. HTDSF is generated during the natural gas exploration and production activities and is commonly referred to as  "frac water," "flowback water," or "production water." 

“Basically, the company is using the flowback and production water from the natural gas industry as a raw material, cleaning it with a patented process, then customizing the resulting fluid (water) into a product for natural gas companies to use in the next hydraulic fracing of a natural gas well in the Marcellus Shale play,” said Neil Hedrick, president of Hydro Recovery.  By reusing the water and not discharging the water into streams, Hydro provides a more environmentally solution by protecting the waters of Pennsylvania.

The company intends to build its first plant in Blossburg, Tioga County where there is a lot of drilling taking place.  Simultaneously, the company is looking at approximately 10 other locations strategically placed throughout the Marcellus Shale play in order to minimize truck traffic in local areas and to help save on the trucking costs for the companies.  Each plant will create approximately 12-15 jobs with many more indirect jobs in the trucking industry and its suppliers.
