While visually unassuming, the production site was just as impressive based on the amount of natural gas being produced and the manner that the gas was being treated prior to entering the distribution pipeline. The equipment to remove and store produced water for treatment was simple but effective.
Our third stop was at the water treatment plant. The flowback and produced water was brought to a centralized location where it was chemically treated for further use in completion operations. Again, Cabot’s careful evaluation of the impacts of produced water reuse showed no impact to production. Thus, Cabot recycled 100% of the produced water. Very impressive and very forward thinking!
Perhaps most importantly, during our ride to the various sites, Bill told us of all the activities and support that Cabot was providing to the community. It was very clear that Cabot was part of the community through their actions such as working to build a community health center, re-paving roads and many other actions.
We all wish Cabot continued success!
