Select Water Solutions Inc. has completed one of the largest recycled produced water jobs recorded in the Texas Midland Basin for Endeavor Energy Resources LP, according to an Aug. 14 press release.

The four-fleet Endeavor project, located in Martin County, Texas, achieved recycling and delivery rates up to 300,000 bbl/d of water and totaled more than 8.2 MMbbl of produced water. The recycling was performed at Select's Big Spring Recycling System in Howard County, Texas. The water was transported to Endeavor's pad site during the month-long project.

The recycled, produced water was sourced from six regional operators within a 10-mile radius of the recycling system. Select delivered the recycled water using electric pumps along an underground 24-inch pipeline running from Howard to Martin counties.

“Sustainable recycling and transportation of produced water is an integral piece of the future of water stewardship in the Midland Basin,” said Select's chairman, president and CEO John Schmitz. “We are proud to work with Endeavor to achieve one of the largest and most technically-challenging recycling projects ever performed in the Permian Basin.”

The Big Spring system is one of the largest commercially permitted recycling networks in the Permian Basin with a throughput capacity of over 300,000 bbl/d recycled produced water. The system connects six operators’ produced water systems into a central nexus and storage point and concurrently serves them with blends of up to 100% recycled water for reuse.
