Frac Water Ponds

Introduction

Fluids used in the hydraulic fracturing (fracking) process that are returned to the surface, called flowback, are generally stored in open pits (ponds) or tanks at the well site prior to disposal. Flowback – water combined with sand, sediment, oil and other additives – must be contained to ensure it does not permeate into the ground. Frac water ponds are typically lined with a geomembrane to help prevent any seepage or leaks.

Nilex can custom fabricate frac pond liners to any size. Nilex geomembranes are designed to withstand the contaminants contained in the flowback and are highly puncture resistant.

Bituminous Geomembrane (BGM) Liners

Bituminous Geomembrane (BGM) liners are an extremely versatile flame-resistant containment solution. The U.S. Nuclear Safety Agency qualifies them for a 1,000 year life span, based on UV resistance and physical durability. Highly resistant to punctures and tearing, they're also highly flexible...

Enviroflex - Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) Geomembranes

Enviroflex linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) geomembranes provide much of the same durability and resistance properties found in high density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembranes, but with the added benefit of increased material flexibility because it is a lower-density polymer. This gives...

High Temperature Hot Liquid Rated (HLR) Geomembrane Liners

This latest innovation in geomembrane liner technology is the patent pending HLR (Hot Liquid Rated) Series of geomembrane liners. With its unique blend of special resins and additive package, this series of hot liquid resistant (high temperature) geomembrane liners offers the same hydrostatic...

Testimonials

I want to thank you for getting things organized as quickly as you did for us and for the follow up calls and site visits that allowed us to get this work done and meet our schedule dates for the road work. As well, your product knowledge and ability to provide the technical support when dealing with the consultants was a major help in getting the system approved and installed correctly.

Bob T, Project Manager, MGP Construction Ltd.

Not only was there a substantial cost savings realized by the client, there was also a benefit to the road structure as well. The original design road structure number was 3.780 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 2,147,000. The revised road structure number using the TX5 is 4.260 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 4,593,000.

Jim B, C.E.T., Senior Project Manager, WSP Canada Inc.

Nilex was an invaluable asset in the successful completion of the Troutbrooke Drive Slope Stabilization project in Toronto, by providing engineering assistance, installation training and continuous on and off site technical support.
