Case Study: Ventless Flowback Improves Safety and Sustainability for Major Operator


The Challenge: A customer focused on safety and sustainability identified three potential issues during flowback and well testing operations—the need to reduce hydrocarbon venting, hydrocarbon exposure to staff and the environmental impact of flares. At the time, regulation in the region restricted flaring for non- exploratory wells. Visible flares from a nearby interstate could potentially impact traffic conditions, particularly at night. Venting from gas-driven mechanisms, incomplete flare combustion, and open-top tanks could increase the risk of exposure to benzene and other hazardous materials. We made the decision to…
