Hydraulic fracturing water supply services

NCS Fluid Handling Systems provides hydraulic fracturing water supply services across Western Canada

As water acts as the primary carrier fluid in hydraulic fracturing, it is critical that large quantities of relatively fresh water be reasonably available. The quality of the water is very important because impurities can reduce the efficiency of the additives used in the process.

We can provide mass amounts of water from surface water sources, including lakes, rivers and municipal supplies. We can also provide groundwater when necessary to augment surface water supplies where available. 

During a hydraulic fracturing operation, NCS can offer specialized services that include water transfer and water logistics, such as permitting and crossing agreements and frac water heating.

Frac water heating and frac fluids heating services in general are necessary in colder climates to prevent water from freezing, to maintain proper downhole tubular temperatures, and to meet the specifications of some cross-linked gel fluid formulas. Frac water heating service is a crucial part of many hydraulic fracturing operations.

Working with partners in the industry, NCS can offer turnkey solutions with water storage, manifolds and pumping systems.
