The oil and gas industry finds itself in constant controversy with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), water protection groups, and other environmental activists.

In the United States, the increased use of hydraulic fracturing, otherwise known as fracking, is proven to be a major benefit to the economy.

However, in states like New York, the practice is banned because of its alleged hazardous correlation to drinking water.

A recent study conducted by EPA has confirmed that there is no evidence of contaminated drinking water caused by fracking (source: The Washington Times)

 Produced water reuse can be a valuable strategy for oil and gas operators

The legislation on water rights spread awareness to the industry, but obviously companies need a “middle man” in the field who is dedicated to handling the water management sector of the business.

Viable, automated solutions to water management start with accountability.

Acknowledging why water management is a growing concern for environmentalists and citizens across the country will lead to change.

Flowpoint can help companies take responsibility for their practices and invest in solutions that will protect, preserve, and account for the country’s water and wastewater supply.

As critical as oil and gas are to our daily energy source and economy, we should not have to sacrifice one for the other.
