Flexible & safe storage for Oil & Gas applications

Over half a century ago, United Rentals started its business by supplying tanks to the Californian ‘oil patch’. As a result, we have developed a deep knowledge base in drilling, hydraulic fracturing, well production and stimulation. With this understanding we have created process solutions for drilling muds, water management and the safe containment of raw products. At United Rentals we can help you meet your local, national and EU regulatory obligations.

Case Study - Oil & Gas - Rainwater treatment - Slider Image
Case Study - Onshore drilling compound: Rainwater treatment

Our customer needed to harvest, treat and store rainwater from an onshore drilling site to ensure an efficient and environmentally sound process.

In addition, they were being constantly monitored on the environmental impact of the project so they needed to minimise both water use and transport movements.
