Palko treats, processes and disposes of oil and gas, and industrial waste streams.

Palko’s waste management facilities can handle approximately 25 types of oil and gas wastes in an efficient, convenient and environmentally sustainable manner. A combination of processing technology, heat, time and pressure is used to separate these waste streams into three components: water, solids and oil.

Water is clarified and filtered to the micron level before deepwell disposal (see illustration).

Solids are dried out, analyzed against acceptance criteria and then transported to an oil and gas waste landfill for disposal.

Oil is also recovered from processing waste and solids. The quality of this oil is dependent on the percentage of solids and water mixed with this oil. The oil is then further treated to meet standard crude specifications and then delivered to the pipeline.

Palko’s oil and gas waste receiving, processing and disposal facilities are located in and around major producing fields and new development areas. The facilities are easily accessible from major roadways, reducing the wear and tear associated with off highway travel. Palko prides itself on improving truck turn-around times helping to reduce the overall cost to our customers.

The illustration also breaks out the lifecycle of a well into drilling, completions, fracturing, production, servicing and abandonment activities, and shows that the waste streams generated from these activities contain water, oil and solids. This water drop represents the intensity of water during the lifecycle of an oil and gas well, and the opportunity for oil and gas produced water and waste water to be treated for potential reuse.
