WPD’s core business is Frac Support ™. The concept was to create an entirely new support service to meet the newly created demand for strategic water management, for entire gas and oil fields with high well densities.

This service concept became relevant in the early 2000’s when multi well pads became economical, primarily as a result of advances in directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing technology.
