Sionix to Operate Brine & Water Reclamation Facility in Bakken

Source: 6/3/2014, Location: North America

Sionix Corporation has signed a Letter of Intent to form a 50-50 Joint Venture with BR Investments, LLC, an affiliate of The Prime Group, Inc. The Letter of Intent provides for the Joint Venture to build and operate a facility to treat, reclaim and market production and flowback water from crude oil production and fracking operations in the Bakken Shale.

The plant will be located in Culbertson, Montana on an existing 45 acre industrial facility that includes heated tankage, buildings, highway and rail access, piping, water wells and other infrastructure. BRI and Prime will acquire the total site and provide project financing to the JV. Sionix will contribute a technology license and provide operating and technical management of the business.

Henry Sullivan, Sionix Chief Executive Officer, stated, "This project, when completed, will be the first large scale commercial application of Sionix technology to treat production and flowback water from drilling, fracking and production operations. It is based on many years of research, development, lab and field testing by the Company."

"We are very encouraged to be working with a partner with the vision and strength of BRI/Prime. Their experience in property development, engineering and construction, project financing and management is a key element of our team strategy", Sullivan added.

John Breugelmans, a principal of BRI, remarked, "We are pleased to be working with Sionix to participate in the growing and strategically important oil industry development in the Bakken and elsewhere. We feel that the Sionix technology and our proposed operation in Culbertson will contribute to improving fracking economics while preserving precious fresh water aquifers by reclaiming oil field brines to a quality that permits reuse rather than one time use of fresh water followed by permanent disposal of flowback and produced water into deep saltwater disposal wells."
