Apache’s water reuse facility near Barnhart, Texas, in the Permian Basin recycles 100% of its produced water. Brackish water is pumped from the Santa Rosa aquifer into a large pond with a 500,000‑bbl capacity. At the same time, a system of pipes takes the produced and flowback water from wellsites to a set of storage tanks in which it is treated to remove iron and other minerals. Water from both sources is piped back to wellsites to be used for fracturing.
