As technology employed by hydraulic fracturing advances, new water containment and flowback containment methods also rise in the fracking market.
While some operations choose to utilize a flat pad with berms to contain leaks, other areas of the fracking process opt to use multiple trucks to transport water and flowback. Some choose to assemble walls and create a frac tank on the operation’s site.
When these frac tanks are used in place of frac reservoirs or frac pits, installers must go through a well-engineered process of completion. To ensure that no leakage occurs, a liner is used for an underlay. This material is typically made of geotextile that protects the liner from any possible punctures or tears.
Once the geotextile is in place, the base of the frac tank is laid. The edges are folded and used to go over the walls. Your installers will then use a solid, stable structure assembled on-site to function as walls of your tank and secure it in place. When the wall’s assembly is completed, your liner material is laid over the wall. This ensures that you cover both the inside and the outside wall of your frac tank.
