SALTWATER

DISPOSAL FACILITY

NEW SERVICES

GEM is offering a new TURNKEY SALTWATER DISPOSAL FACILITY as part of GEM's NEW Oil Field Designs and Services.

Saltwater is often found in the same formations as oil because it was trapped in layers of sediment millions of years ago.

Saltwater disposal wells are a safe way to manage the byproducts of oil and gas production. To ensure the environment is not contaminated, saltwater disposal wells have unique construction requirements. 

For every barrel of oil produced, approximately 10 barrels of saltwater is also produced and require disposal.

The timely disposal of these fluids is required by oil and natural gas exploration and production companies, or producers, during the lifespan of their producing oil and natural gas wells and with each new oil and natural gas well drilled and completed.


A saltwater disposal well is most often an oil or gas well that is no longer in production. 

Class II Saltwater Disposal Wells are the EPA’s preferred method for the disposal of saltwater produced from the oil extraction process. 

We currently focus on the disposal of flowback and produced water waste fluids (collectively referred to in the industry as ‘‘saltwater’’), which includes brinish fluids returned to the surface during a well’s completion and production phases.


GEM designs and constructs saltwater disposal facilities including the casing, wellheads and pumps. We know that failed equipment can be devastating to a production site, and we strive to limit and reduce the amount of failures by preventative maintenance.


Regular maintenance can minimize overall expenses and maximize production by resolving minor issues before they become catastrophic.
