What is a tank battery?


A tank battery is a group of tanks that are connected to receive produced water from a well.  A tank is normally a single- or double-steel or fiberglass vessel that can hold 200-400 barrels. The tank battery also includes some production equipment, such as gas separators which allow the produced water to be separated from the gas.  The produced water is removed from the tanks by truck, and taken to disposal facilities outside of the City.
