Hydro Recovery LP launches website that offers information for environmentally safe alternatives for the treatment of natural gas flowback water

May 5, 2010- (Blossburg) Hydro Recovery LP announced the launch of a new website – - to provide information to both customers and the general public about the environmentally safe and affordable solution the company offers for the treatment of natural gas production water.

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

“Hydro Recovery is using the flowback water 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 re-using the water and not discharging it into streams, Hydro Recovery provides an environmentally safe solution and protects the waters of Pennsylvania.

The company intends to build its first plant in Blossburg borough, Tioga County where there is a concentrated amount of natural gas drilling.  Hydro Recovery is considering plant sites in approximately ten other sites strategically placed throughout the Marcellus Shale play in order to minimize truck traffic in local areas and to help save trucking expenses for the companies.  Each plant will create approximately 12-15 jobs and more indirect jobs in the trucking industry and its suppliers.

Hydro Recovery has also developed a process to treat acid mine drainage (AMD) water so that it can be used in fracing of natural gas wells.
