OSIL Launches Fracking Water Monitor

By Marine Technology Reporter

OSIL will offer a full fracking monitoring system to enable clients to monitor local water quality before, during and after operations. Hydraulic Fracturing (fracking), where gas is extracted from shale rock, is becoming an increasingly popular means of extracting gas. The implementation of a reliable monitoring system is essential to this process. The quantities of chemicals and minerals used in the process, along with the huge volumes of water required, pose a potential threat to the surface and ground water network. OSIL provide the means to monitor ground water quality and potentially help prevent the contamination of surrounding water supplies.
The OSIL system offers multi parameter monitoring equipment that is used to collect vital background data prior to the commencement of operations, in order to better understand the existing ground water structure.
