Catapult opens third water management facility
Catapult Environmental has opened the Berland Complex, its third water management facility, southwest of Fox Creek, Alta.
“We are very excited about the potential of the Berland Complex. We’ve partnered with the top operators in the region to connect their operations via pipeline to this facility,” said Michael Wood, president and CEO of Catapult. “We expect to connect more operators to this complex in the coming months which will decrease water handling costs and bring more profitability to our partners.”
Working with key partners, the Berland Complex is connected to Montney and Duvernay operators through a network of pipelines that will enable Catapult to process, recycle and dispose of 2,000 cubic metres of water per day. The complex solves costly water management challenges in the area, conveys water via pipeline and reduces C02 emissions by more than 1,000 tons annually.
Catapult has also solidified its new strategic direction by announcing a name change to Catapult Water Midstream, demonstrating the company’s commitment to build a fully connected pipeline network among its complexes and to operators’ facilities across the Montney and Duvernay.
“As an ARC Financial sponsored company, Catapult is positioning itself to be a true leader in the water midstream space,” said Jeremy Gackle, senior vice-president with ARC Financial and Catapult board chairman. “Catapult is fully integrating water handling capabilities and ultimately simplifies and streamlines water processing for energy companies.”
Catapult has invited local community members to participate in a ribbon cutting of the Berland Complex on July 18 and will roll out its name change to Catapult Water Midstream over the summer.
