Flowback Spill Geologic Investigation

Flowback (produced water) was impacting an active natural gas well pad. To properly address the release and determine the need for corrective actions, our client needed to first characterize the extent of the spill and evaluate remedial alternatives.

RETTEW’s geologists, experienced in site characterization and remediation, provided firsthand knowledge of the locale and relevant regulations. Our team of experts delineated the extent of the impacts through soil sampling, recovered flowback liquids through a series of test pits, and excavated and remediated impacted soils. RETTEW provided a low-cost solution to identify site issues, navigate solutions, and even establish a site-specific standard for soil chloride concentrations. Because of our team’s involvement, the client received approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and the client avoided long-term groundwater monitoring, which saved them significant long-term costs.
