Geomembrane Liners are Essential for Extracting Shale Gas | Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream

The oil and gas industry has three significant steps: upstream, midstream, and downstream. Upstream includes operations identifying the deposits, drilling the wells, and recovering the raw oil from underground. Midstream involves the transportation and storage of the materials. Downstream consists of the refineries and marketing. Basically, the companies engaged in the downstream process turn the crude oil into a usable product. Find out how BTL Liners can assist in every step of the way.


You need geomembrane liners for protection in the upstream process. Since this step involves the drilling and extracting, using a product that is durable is essential. At BTL Liners, we create durable and reliable liners. We have liner strength requirements for our fracturing customers. Our double-scrim reinforced 40 mil liner is thicker, stronger, and more puncture resistant compared to other liners made of similar material and function in the marketplace. Additional benefits of our liners are:
  • Chemical resistant
  • UV resistant
  • Strength and puncture resistant
  • Heat-welded seams
  • BTL installation
We have extensive knowledge of designing, creating, and fabricating containment booms for oil spill cleanup. With the proper installation and appropriate monitoring with safety procedures, we believe that hydraulic fracturing is a fundamentally safe process.


Transporting and storing crude oil can be a difficult job, but we can help contain the goods. BTL Liners has shipped many truckloads of our geomembrane liners and covers to sites across the US and Canada. Oilfield service companies are some of our biggest customers. We help with primary and secondary containment. Our geomembrane liners meet all of the regulations for the oil, gas, and mining industries. Our liners will act as an outer wall or secondary barrier that serves as a double enclosure to prevent the leakage of liquids and contamination of soil and water. They also reinforce materials that are toxic, flammable, reactive, combustible, or corrosive. Secondary containment protects your product during transportation and storage. So we’ve got you covered — no pun intended.


This last stage includes oil refineries, petrochemical plants, petroleum products distributors, retail outlets and natural gas distribution companies. BTL’s role in the oil and gas industry is to provide impermeable liners for safe storage and containment of liquids. Our geomembrane liners are high quality, strong, durable, resistant to tears or punctures and can be configured to meet your needs. Playing a part in the development and production of energy resources in the US is important to us. We believe the US is on its way to energy independence.
