Aris Water Solutions, Inc. announced that ExxonMobil has joined Aris’s previously announced strategic agreement (the “Agreement”) with Chevron U.S.A. Inc. (“Chevron”) and ConocoPhillips Company (“ConocoPhillips”) to develop and pilot technologies and processes to treat produced water for potential beneficial reuse opportunities. Together, Aris, ExxonMobil, Chevron, and ConocoPhillips seek to develop cost-effective and scalable solutions of treating produced water for non-consumptive agricultural, alternative power generation and other industrial and commercial applications.

“We are delighted that ExxonMobil is joining our collaborative industry efforts to improve water sustainability management in the Permian Basin by developing and piloting additional opportunities to use produced water outside of the oil and gas industry,” said Aris President and CEO Amanda Brock. “By combining the expertise and resources of ExxonMobil, Chevron, and ConocoPhillips with Aris’s proven capabilities in water gathering, treatment, and recycling, we can further accelerate beneficial reuse solutions.”

“As a leading operator in the Permian Basin, we are working to help safeguard the region’s water sources,” said David Scott, General Manager of ExxonMobil’s Permian business unit. “Collaborating with others to help unlock beneficial reuse opportunities is a key part of ExxonMobil’s Permian water management strategy, and we look forward to furthering this effort with our long-standing experience in research and technology development.”

Aris, ExxonMobil, Chevron, and ConocoPhillips plan to complete pilot testing and the performance evaluation of certain pilot technologies by the end of 2023. This will pave the way for risk assessments for treated produced water, which are important enablers for eventual beneficial reuse applications. The companies remain focused on working closely with regulators and industry stakeholders to continue supporting collaborative efforts that can help realize the full potential of beneficial reuse.
