Flowbacks

Flowbacks are water based solutions that flow back to the surface during and after the completion of hydraulic fracturing. They consist of the fluids used to fracture the shale rock. The fluids contains clays, chemical additives, sand, dissolved metal ions, total dissolved solids (TDS) and a variable percentage of crude oil. The water has a murky appearance from high levels of suspended particles. Most of the flowback occurs in the first seven to ten days while the rest can occur over a three to four week time period.

Stratnor accepts most Flowbacks that have a solids content of 50% or less. In some cases we do so at no cost to the producer. In other cases we do so against a barter arrangement whereby we receive in exchange agreed upon barrels of virgin merchantable crude oil or agreed upon barrels of more manageable Off-spec or skim crude oil. If no suitable barter or exchange can be made, we accept Flowbacks, delivered to our sites, based on the following rate sheet:
