Recycling Water & STF Permits

Recycling Water & STF Permits in Austin

Our Skilled Austin Oil & Gas Attorneys Can Help

Considerable amounts of water can be used for hydraulic fracturing (also known as ‘fracking’) and can be recovered when extracting oil and gas from the earth, and this water needs to be recycled rather than wasted. Fracking can consume many millions of gallons of water per year, and much of it can return to the surface as produced water that can be treated and reused. To do this requires a Stationary Treatment Facility (STF) permit, and our Austin oil and gas attorneys can help you obtain one.

Why Choose The Jones Law Firm PC, Attorneys at Law?

Our Austin oil and gas lawyers have extensive experience with advising clients on issues dealing with treating and recycling groundwater, and we can help your business obtain the STF permit you need to handle flowback or produced water.

We Have the Experience You Need

The Railroad Commission of Texas requires STF permits to treat and recycle the water recovered from production from shale formations due to hydraulic fracking, and our Austin oil and gas attorneys have helped our clients obtain these permits already.

In addition, we have provided counsel for clients looking to treat and recycle water from horizontal oil and gas wells using mobile treatment facilities. These measures have allowed for water to be reused in the operation of oil and gas wells in Texas thanks to our advocacy.

The Jones Law Firm PC can take your case before the Texas Railroad Commission (RRC), provide it with the siting information that is needed, and argue your facility is not a threat to the environment.
