BeneTerra Land Resources Leader, Glenn Bailey, presented a paper on November 17th, 2015 in Minneapolis at the Soil Science Society of America meetings. It was entitled “Pedological Implications for Rehabilitating Coalbed Methane Ponds – using soil material identification to deconstruct water storage ponds and rehabilitate pasture land.” The paper, co-authored by John Zupancic, discussed techniques developed by BeneTerra in Australia to rehabilitate pond sites where the original soil materials had been scattered and blended during construction making it difficult to re-establish productive pasture land.

Comprehensive mobile water treatment system deployed for coal seam gas water

de-watering ponds servicesWe recently employed a comprehensive mobile water treatment process in a remote location to de-water a pond holding saline water produced during gas production. The water was passed through disc filters, microfilters and reverse osmosis. The RO permeate was used for road dust suppression and the RO reject was further concentrated with BeneTerra’s EvC™. The dense concentrate was then hauled to a fit-for-purpose brine dam. By dispersing permeate and concentrating in-situ over 40,000 km of truck movements were eliminated.
