Brent Halldorson is Chief Operating Officer for Aqua-Pure, a Canadian public company that specializes in oilfield related water treatment. He received his BSc in Electrical Engineering from the University of Calgary (Canada) in 1990. Aqua-Pure pioneered the use of evaporator technology in Alberta’s heavy oil industry. Mr. Halldorson also manages Aqua-Pure’s US-based service company, Fountain Quail Water Management. Fountain Quail pioneered commercial recycling in shale gas development, starting in the Barnett Shale in 2004. Mr. Halldorson is a professional engineer who has been with the company since 1999. In that time, Fountain Quail has recycled close to a billion gallons of shale gas wastewater back into freshwater for re-use in the Barnett Shale utilizing its patented NOMAD evaporators and has expanded operations into the Marcellus Shale (Pennsylvania) and other portions of Texas (including the Eagle Ford and Permian Basin). Fountain Quail also offers its new high capacity ROVER mobile treatment system which is capable of generating clean brine for re-use at a very economic rate for customers which do not require freshwater. Fountain Quail has a new joint venture with Select Energy Services that allows the team to offer complete water management solutions to the industry, including sourcing, transfer, recycling, containment and disposal. Mr. Halldorson is the acting chairman of the Texas Water Recycling Association. The TWRA is focused on helping find solutions to Texas’ most challenging water issues across all industries.
