AGL has resumed the transportation of flowback water from its Waukivory Pilot, near Gloucester, NSW.

AGL has engaged Toxfree Solutions to transport and treat flowback water at its licenced facility, and subsequently dispose of the treated water.

The flowback water will be taken to Toxfree’s Narangba plant in Brisbane’s north for treatment to the standards set by the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection and Toxfree’s trade waste agreement.

There is approximately 2.7 megalitres of flowback water to be removed from the Waukivory site, with removal and treatment expected to take approximately three months.

AGL holds all necessary government and regulatory approvals for this work to take place, while the arrangement means Tiedmans East Dam currently won’t be used to store flowback water.

AGL remains in discussions with other waste disposal service providers for options to treat the flowback water and dispose of treated water in NSW.
